New YouTube video page
Posted 4/1/10 , edited 4/1/10
Am I the only one who strongly dislikes the new video page used on YouTube? The layout is just akward and there are less features I can access directly from it. Also, while I usually do not mind simplistic design, this one is a bit too simplistic even for my taste.

What is worse is that YouTube supposedly gives you the option to "opt out" from using the new design, but the functionality is currently not working. And to add insult to injury, this is what they posted on their official blog:


After reading your comments, we'd like to note that some of you are opted in permanently to the new page, which means you are part of our current experiment and are unable to opt out. These kinds of experiments help us learn what works on the page and what doesn't, so that we can build the best possible site for you. We've also heard your feedback on Auto-play interrupting your experience and are working on some improvements.

Honestly, this is even worse then the beta channel debacle.... -_-

Anyway, what abou you? Do you like the new layout or do you share my sentiments?

I don't like it that much either, but you can't do anything about it. You're not a partner of YT.
I don't mind a change of scenery, but they could've chose a better layout & more new features. Fix the bugs too on the site as well.

Yeah, it seems like they took a step backwards with this one. Oh well, for now we just have to eat what we are being fed, unless you can go without youtube.

I hate it. It's ugly & uncomfortable to watch videos with.

Yeah, it looks pretty sloppy and I remember seeing an option where you choose a quality on a video like "textp" or something like that. The description for it was something like 'you're saving youtube a $1 of bandwidth" or something when you choose that quality. A good idea but I doubt people would watch videos with that..

Even if it sucks, you're still gonna visit their site lol. I think Veoh's better because of their mild censorship but they're bringing their site down anytime soon and its not that famous for everyone to use it *cries*
