YouTube Center is an extension for the browser that will enhance the experience on YouTube by adding tons of new and useful features. See the wiki for details on how to install the extension and how it works: https://github.com/YePpHa/YouTubeCenter/wiki
You can contribute to YouTube Center by different means. You can help find bugs (and report them in the issue tracker), help with the translation to different languages or you can try and implement new things yourself.
YouTube Center uses Crowdin to better manage the translations. If you want to help with the translation of YouTube Center you can find the project page on Crowdin.
YouTube Center is using the build system Ant.
Base requirements (you don’t need these to run the extension)
To build the Chrome or Maxthon extension it is required to be able to run executable, which can be done in Wine on Linux or on a Windows computer.
It is possible to build the unpacked version of the Chrome or Maxthon extension without the need to run executables:
ant copy-chrome – Makes the required files to build the extension file (.crx) ready in the build directory.
ant copy-maxthon – Makes the required files to build the extension file (.mxaddon) ready in the build directory.
The certificates for signing the extensions have to be provided by yourself and have to be placed in:
It should be noted that the Ant build will create a new signing key for Chrome if it’s missing from
/.cert/chrome/ (Running executables is required).
The build system is made in Ant and requires both Ant and Java to be installed.

ant devnumber– Increment the build number.
