How do I make YouTube videos on Google Chrome on my laptop pause whenever my Bluetooth headphones disconnect?

Recently, I've been having a problem, where whenever I disconnect my Bluetooth headphones from my laptop (while it is playing music on YouTube, Google Chrome), the music doesn't pause, it keeps playing through the laptop speakers.

So is there any way to make it pause when you disconnect Bluetooth headphones?

There is a similar question on this site here:

But I didn't understand the aforementioned solution. If anyone could explain the solution given in the link, or provide a new one, I'd be very grateful.

I also checked if the Q&A Assist had an answer, and I talked about some Chrome extension, which I sadly couldn't find. If anyone has the "Bluetooth headphones manager for Google Chrome" extension, I'd be very happy if they linked it.

Thanks in advance!

    To automatically pause YouTube videos on Google Chrome when Bluetooth headphones disconnect, you can use an extension called "Bluetooth headphones manager for Google Chrome". This extension pauses the video when the headphones are disconnected and resumes playback when they are reconnected. Here are the steps to install and use the extension:

    1. Open Google Chrome and go to the Chrome Web Store.
    2. Search for "Bluetooth headphones manager for Google Chrome" and click "Add to Chrome".
    3. Click "Add extension" to confirm the installation.
    4. Once the extension is installed, click on the extension icon in the top right corner of the browser.
    5. Click on "Settings" and select your Bluetooth headphones from the list of devices.
    6. Enable the "Pause on disconnect" option.
    7. Close the settings tab and start playing a YouTube video.
    8. When you disconnect your Bluetooth headphones, the video will automatically pause. When you reconnect the headphones, the video will resume playback.

    I hope this helps!
