The exact reaction when I saw it.

Holy crap, YouTube made the worst mistake ever by making this layout! To those who didn't notice, YouTube has made the worst layout ever! Seriously, how do I instantly know when I get a new comment or a message? And why do I have to keep pressing "Subscriptions" to show what my subs uploaded, liked, commented and subed? Its terrible, just freaking terrible. I can't get use to this. I prefer the old layout, at least it had some colour to it unlike this confusing layout. Also why is the subscriptions not in alphabetical order? There is so many things I can complain about with this thing. Call me a complaining b**ch if you want but its true.

Just bringing this up so other users know about this.

I hope this is good enough to be in Reality Corner, it seems to fit here anyways sense I need a good descussion about this.

What bothers me about this is the all-white color scheme.
Seriously, who thought this was a good idea? It makes my eyes bleed!
Although the RC does provide an environment of serious moderated discussion, I'm afraid this does not fit here. The RC is meant only for threads that involve serious topics which may have repercussions in our lives or that of someone else's. (Keeping the definition broad as there have been discussion threads here that, while they are serious discussions, do not necessarily deal with personal issues, such as the religion debate thread, and I want to allow for those exceptions. This doesn't quite fit the bill.)

There are things that bugs me on the new YouTube layout:

> The top part is really small.
> Large white space at the right side.
> Main page mixing up recommendations and subscriptions recent activity.
> Recommended channels are kind of bigger (which is annoying to me, those unrelated faces)

Other than that, I shouldn't have to worry about it because I can still watch videos.
I do hate when YouTube changes it's layout, though I end up getting used to it after a while.

--------------------
I no longer have interest in SMW Hacking as I did when I first started several years ago.
There I two improvements I really enjoy:

1. Playlists are now integrated into the video player instead of that stupid bar at the bottom of the screen. Also, I can now go backwards in a playlist instead of only forwards.

2. I can access my subscriptions from the video page instead of only from the front page (The only reason I use the front page, tbh). Now I don't even have to visit the page with all the stupid recommended bullcrap.


However there are some things that could be worked on:

1. The background is pure white. It really blinds my eyes compared to the darkness of most videos. Thankfully Opera supports custom CSS so I can fix this myself.

2. The player still sucks in general. It still crashes/freezes often, causing me to have to refresh the page to continue watching. This has been a problem for me for so long, I wish they would do something about it soon.


Honestly, I think it is step up from the previous layout, but it is still not perfect.
Not really caring either way about the new layout; I'm pretty much used to YouTube dropping these things on us out of the blue. It's just another change that everyone will end up having to get used to over time. So yeah, no real complaints, but nothing really amazing to say either.

However, I feel that those of you complaining about the white background are exaggerating. Come on, it isn't that hard on the eyes.
Layout by Mirann <3
I'm liking some of the new things they're trying to do with having the subscriptions as a constant throughout every page, and as I use custom schemes anyway the colours do not bother me, but its the little things that really annoy me. The overall shift to the left looks incredibly awkward and squashed and makes my OCD really uncomfortable, but my main problem is the new big video player size. The player just looks squashed, and not being able to have it as big as it was before really bothers me. Perhaps I shouldn't complain as I can just zoom in to 110%, but damnit I'm on the internet so it's my right to complain about things that take effort. (Or so I've been told.)

--------------------

Not blue.
The "What to watch" or homepage as we call it, is a sorry excuse for a re-design. You do not even have the option to make it so that it's sorted by "most recent". They do have a "Subscriptions" tab on the side, but you cannot make it permanently stay on "Uploads Only". God Dammit Google... you are a dick. Not to mention I was still getting use to the other layout lol... This new one leaves a big white abyss to the right side of my browser. But I do like that you can access your videos on the side of the page, DURING a video! Although, that too is horribly disorganized by date...

E: Also, I foresaw this thread lmao.

How could they? The old version was SO AWESOME!

You guys...
Crapstatic.

I don't understand why they keep changing and changing the layout of that shit. When I thought I've finally gotten used to the previous one, which wasn't any better than the oldest ones, they come and change it... again. So, why the fuck they did the previous one for instance?

I can't say anything beyond I'm going even more insane.

Right now I think this is one of those changes where people are overreacting and will eventually get used to. I don't think it's awful (yet. But that could change) But I am weirded out. The thing I hate most is the lack of "sort by relevance/date added/views/rating. I sent feedback about that (unless it went right into Google's spam filter).
I think they should work more on technical aspects more-so than aesthetic aspects. I can't think of the last time they did site maintenance. I remember they did that every few days or every week.
The only change I can think of where people were not overreacting is the March 7th channel redesign (also the "real name" prompts and forcing of Google accounts), and I did not officially realize that until they took away the "about this user" and schools/hobbies/etc. info. Like Google doesn't acknowledge there's a human making the channel. So I contributed to increasing the size of the red "light saber" below the views.
I still miss the 1-5 star rating, tho I do think 431 likes and 12,848 dislikes looks more intimidating than 1-star ratings from everyone.

I pretty much agree.

People are indeed overacting. I mean I'll be the first admit the layout doesn't look the most appealing but it isn't that horrible nor is it really necessary to make compliant videos over it. I think the bigger deal here is when they change the unnecessary stuff like mentioned, the lack of "sort by" options as I actually used that.

Other things I don't like that they've changed is having to add a comma after every tag. Though it's minor, it's a prime example of unnecessary changes. The other thing would be not being notified when you have a message or a comment unless you check your inbox. I'm not sure if they fixed that but I remember checking my inbox the other day and finding out I had a few comments.

Edited: Oh and I'm not sure if I'm the only one having a problem with there icon not showing up in the top right corner but yeah that probably should be fixed as well. (Unless it was intentional then it's just another unnecessary change)

I think it's so that it will be easier to combine multiple words into one tag, which I didn't really know how to do before. Upload Society and Power Video Tube do that too. This is also minor, but I don't like the tags being invisible on the viewing page.

I've gotten e-mail notifications, at least for people replying to my comments. I still see the "notify me when a comment is posted on my video or reply to a comment is posted" option under e-mail options, so it could just be a glitch.

For those who hate that big white abyss and have chrome, one of my friends made this:

The new layout is pretty square-y and too white for my tastes.

Also, I wonder if Youtube was thinking that people switched back to 1024x768 or something. 50% of my screen is literally empty (the right side) on the home and search page.

My blog. I could post stuff now and then
I honestly don't mind the new layout at all. I mean, it was a pretty sudden change and stuff, but like TomPhanto said, you get used to it eventually.
