It has been nearly a year since the YouTube Enhancer script has been updated, and now various features are broken by changes to YouTube. An example of what it used to look like:

enter image description here

Does there exist a replacement for this script, perhaps a third party fix or extension that works with newer YouTube layouts?

No complete replacement, of course. You could always pay a javascript coder to debug and update that script. ;-)

Thanks for the summary. Seeing the apparent popularity of this script I'm surprised someone has not already updated it. Since you are ostensibly a JavaScript coder do you have any idea how much work it would take to update this script? Option #1 (pay a coder) might actually be an option if I could get a group of people to each chip in. –  Mr.Wizard Mar 30 '13 at 4:04
It occurs to me to ask: is there any conflict between the Creative Commons license and paying someone to work on the code? –  Mr.Wizard Mar 30 '13 at 4:05
As for effort, if it could be done in less than 30 minutes (by me), or if it was a script I was interested in using, I would have already had a crack at it. That script looks to be a bit of a bear, and I would be sorely tempted to refactor and modularize it. Additionally, all Google sites, like YouTube, are about the worst sites out there to script for. I estimate that it would take me a few hours just to get a handle on the problem (barring luck with any error messages). –  Brock Adams Mar 30 '13 at 4:16
Paying someone was suggested half in jest. It wouldn't be an issue if neither you nor the developer tried to claim any ownership that was not allowed by the CC license. However, I have seen plenty of people take open-source stuff (or other's proprietary stuff), make trivial changes, and then sell it with impunity. Just don't try to republish a fair-use, 30 second excerpt of a song or video! –  Brock Adams Mar 30 '13 at 4:19
