On YouTube there is (well it's not annoying) but they have this new default video size which looks a bit like this or you can view the full image here

enter image description here

Long story short, is there a way to change the default video size to how it use to look like before which was smaller?

Any ideas/suggestions for a Google Chrome Extension that can do this?

Magic Actions for YouTube can: AutoHD feature - start play all YouTube™ videos in HD + Highres > HD1440p > HD1080p > HD720p > 480p > 360p > 240p > 144p and a lot more.

What chrome looks like with the extension enabled and a fixed size selected on my system: enter image description here
