Eh. It's okay at best.

The front page is absolutely the biggest pile of crap there is. I don't really give a shit about the video's youtube recommends me, and the fact that it's mixed in with my subscriptions means that i have to wade through 10 video recommendations to find a video that i want to watch is bull. Half the time the video subscriptions don't even show up. Yep, it's completely fucking broken for me.

The actual videos are okay. The player gets really glitch-y some times, forcing me to actually refresh the page, and getting to watch the ad again. There seems to be a new feature that the page tries to "remember" where you left off, but whenever you refresh the ad plays. So i get to have the video ad the ad playing at the same time. ugh.

The fact that they have avatars next to comments is understandable. They don't really get used often, and the people who usually bitch about having them show is the people with the really retarded ones. I, for one, like to see them, since they don't get used anywhere else, really. The only big issue is that they make the comments bigger. And some videos have lots of comments. Pages on pages of them. So making them a bit bigger wasn't really the best idea.

Overall, they removed and or replaced the features which were working fine, trying to force innovation into the areas which didn't need it, and aren't benefiting from it. They tried to bring in some new ideas, and it shows, but their execution of said ideas is sub-par at best. Their ideas, rather then improving on what they already had, replaced them entirely instead, for no other reason then the fact that they are newer ideas.

That doesn't take away anything. IMO, channel bgs looked ugly as crap with the repeated images. Even without that, I don't see why you people have to get worked up over every little thing, when you can sit down and watch your video with no hassle (well, as long as your browser can use Flash correctly). Why does a BG have to look nice for you to watch someone's videos? Can't you just test one and decide based on the video, what you were meant to watch? Apparently not. If we all just calmed down about it, Youtube is just fine.



Ugly if someone could not color coordinate properly. Also, people did have other options besides having the background repeat, they could fix the image to the page, fit to screen/page (i think?), and a couple others. And yes, I could, and still can watch a video without being on the channel, so watching a video has nothing to do with what I am saying about the channels. The rest of what I was saying had to do with watching videos, but talking about channels, that is relational only towards the personalizing part of my argument. I see how watching a video for someone who has no account, or just recently starting using Youtube will not think much of this update, along with the rest of them. But having an account has the effect of changing one's opinion, as myself, and most fellow users here.

Do not get me wrong, I do not think this whole update is "crap". There are a couple of things that are okay. But mostly, I would rather not use this layout. The problem is, I have no choice, and that is what bugs me the most.

Oh, yeah, I guess you're right. I'll color and reorganize it for you, since clearly it's quite flawed in those departments.

I hope this is ok! :)

Hey, thanks man! ;D

However, I think most of us will agree that the third layout is just bad. In fact, if you look at YouTube's official video on it, just look at the amount of dislikes there are.

Clearly the Youtube community is an intelligent, open-minded group of reasonable, rationally thinking individuals who are considerate of the need for change.


If you are saying that they are being dicks for disliking a video... really? I mean, yes, may comments on the issue are really, really stupid and dickish, but there are some people who dislike it that are intelligent and open-minded. And while many are going about it the wrong way, there were people going about it the right way. Did YouTube listen to them? No.

And change for the sake of change is always bad. Sure, most change is good, but changing the channel, for no reason that I can find, was a bad idea. And not listening to rational people who were suggesting having an option to choose between the two layouts was a bad idea.

Or you could use the Subscriptions tab under your channel name. This is pretty much the only argument I have never agreed with when it comes to YouTube layout changes: that Subscriptions tab has never really changed a-lot, and it's easily assessable, so I don't really see the point of the homepage.

The ability to completely customize your own channel always was retarded, half of the userbase had channels akin to the image just posted, just with text in a colour that was quite impossible to read, not to speak of links often being invisible.

It requires more than one click, where even requiring one click to get to the thing ALL of the userbase wants to see is too much.
Youtube is quite clearly out on advertising channels you aren't subbed to more, but with everybody moaning about this (which is reasonable), they should really have thought of another way to promote other videos by now.

Your layout has been removed.
I've just about stopped caring.

Just remember, guys, you'll be missing the current layout when a new one comes around.

No, he's saying that they're dick/idiots anyway. Youtube's userbase (the majority of it) is really, really troll-like and stupid. I can't go on a video anymore without some guy trolling another and a huge argument with lots of dick-sucking jokes. Youtube just doesn't have a good userbase in general. And this means that every, single, person is going to whine incessantly until the next layout comes around and the whole thing starts again.

Also, I went and customized my channel (yes, I actually have a channel) and found that the customization was just fine. There is/was no reason to have fully custom channels anyway. Just click on the damn videos.
YouTube are not the only ones. Skype had it, too!

Yea, because Skype merged with MSN.
Good job keeping up with your software.

I can see what Youtube was going for with some of the changes, but for the most part, I don't know...I'm just not a big fan. The thing about this change, and the last 2 big changes, is that it seemed like Youtube really only released a half-baked version of what they ended up with. I remember when Youtube Beta (the 2nd change) was released, they said over and over again that it would be released at the end of the month, but it actually took like 4 or 5 months to actually get everyone changed over. I think that worked, because it allowed users to use it if they wanted to and get ready for the change, submitting suggestions and bugs reports to make sure it doesn't get screwed up when everyone else joined in. And then when everyone was switched over, it wasn't really hard to get used to everything, because we knew what we were getting into.

can youtube quit updating shit that dosen't need to be updated because it just makes things worse

Check out my Hack Thread
I HATE IT! Everything is squished over to the left side of the homepage and there is a massive blank space on the right. The whole thing is a fucking MESS! #smw{>:|}
Something I've been wondering about the new layout:

Anyone know what's with the speed settings? They don't seem to do anything.

They've never worked unless you were using Google Chrome, as they were using proprietary Google Chrome APIs. They also only appear in HTML5 mode.

Also, don't click this link if you like new Youtube layout.

That's obvious. Whenever youtube updates its layout, it's far worse than the old one, and people prefer the old one (that still sucks) over the new one (that sucks even more).

As long as I have this script no changes to Youtube will ever phase me. It begs the question, however, as to why they even officially removed that system of organizing the start page to begin with. It was pretty much the best start page they ever had.
I bet it's a buggy youtube wip update
