May I be one of the few to say that I really don't mind the new layout update? I mean, it has a few problems, but I can work around them easily enough. Plus the current playlist you're viewing appears on the side of the video, which is nice.

@re: speed controls - I can confirm they've worked on Chrome.

I'm kinda thinking the missing "browse" or "sort by" function is sorta the straw that broke the camel's back for me, and if they don't re-add it, it might be time for me to pull the plug on YouTube. Google has removed too many interesting features and I am sick of it. I find myself using Bing more and more lately.

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

My thoughts exactly.

Oh, and if anyone's having trouble with the new layout this guy was nice enough to make a tutorial.

I can still do it just fine. However, the login only says email now. They might be planning on doing it in the future.
Okay, I've been trying to stay quiet about this but I can't take it anymore. Not trying to be rude here but after about dealing with the new layout for almost a week, (I think.) I personally think people just complain and worry about the layout way too much and it's really getting irritating to deal with this. I'll be the first to admit that it doesn't look appealing but why should it really? I mean I'm not saying Youtube should just release a shitty effortless layout, but (And as much as people will refuse to believe this.) I'm sure they've put somewhat of an effort to make a good layout even if isn't liked in the end. Youtube has always been about "Uploading Videos, and commenting & rating in such and as far as I can tell, is still the same since my day one of being on youtube. In fact uploading has gotten better since you're able to multiple upload & more options, but most of all, being able to upload larger sized videos & longer time limits.

Now I think the fact that you're no longer notified by "New Comments or Messages" and you have to constantly check your inbox to find out you have a new comment is stupid and I don't know what they were thinking. (Maybe there's a few other stupid little things as well.) But as far as I can tell, they have not ruined the main purposes of youtube. I mean seriously why does the design matter that much? Until it actually looks f***ed up and everything's all hard to navigate do to this then yeah, I'll complain too but it doesn't and everything is still really easy to navigate. (The very old youtube layout didn't exactly look appealing either as far as I can remember.) To the people acting like it's the end of the world because the new layout (Which I'm convinced people are reacting the way.) really just need to find something better to do with their time, no offense. And to the people complaining about having to click "my subscriptions" each time to see the activities of your subs......really? That's just lazy on your part. (It takes no effort to do that.)

I don't know, I guess what I'm trying to say here is, there's no "actual" big deal here aside from a horrible layout. (At least in my opinion.) yet the same trend happens each time youtube changes it's layout. If there's anything horrible about the new layout, it's the uploaded rant videos that come with it honestly. (No offense if you were one of them but that's just how I feel.)

I apologize for the rant/vent but just that I share my thoughts. (Tha I've been driven insane keeping inside.)

Honestly i like the YouTube suggestions but first and fore most i want to see my subscriptions uploads not what YouTube is force feeding me, It's bland and looks terrible and is a bit too hard to navigated overall i dislike it and I'm sure others have stated what i have.

YouTube you fail me again. I'm disappoint
It's a bit disorienting, but I suppose I'll get used to it like any other change. It sure does go through more layout changes than most sites I visit.

Oh hey look, YouTube is trying to copy FaceBook. Come on, its hard enough to disagree with the "Real names on YouTube", but actually trying to force us to actually use our real names on sign up is just sh***y if you ask me.

Look, back at 2007 everything is perfect, now its getting worse.

I don't want to believe this is gonna happen. It's just another freaking idiocy that will lead nowhere and won't help anybody at all. And it's also pretty against our freedom of thought.

Fuck YouTube. They're becoming dictators.

If this continues, YouTube will be worst in the Future, I guess.

YouTube was good when the Rating System was in Stars and the Layout was Simple.

I mean, just imagine if this has nothing to do with "your username" and it's actually about proper identification, that would allow people to change their usernames. That'd be horrible.

[insert list of accounts people made because they wanted a new name, someone else had theirs, they just plain wanted to "park" that username etc]

The stars system never made any sense. 5 stars meant "I like", 1 star meant "I dislike", everything between those two were basically never used. That's why they changed it. And the layout was never simple, it's was cluttered as hell before the last set of revamps. Just see: [urgh] [bleeh] [you're kidding, right?] [ahahaha] [i have no words] [man don't we all remember how dark youtube used to be] [i'm not even capping a pic of the design with the noisy background because too much lol]

Because you own the websites you use.
I miss the old Youtube... I don't want to use my real name as username, and that fucking Youtube insists on wanting me to do that. Just no.
>bing

hahahahah

If you don't want companies changing the layout on you, host the videos yourself on your own site. There's no real good alternative out there. The changes are minimal anyways, as said before.

It.. never was quite as simple as it is now, actually.
Especially the old (much whiter, btw) layouts were just a clusterfuck of thumbnails aimlessly thrown around the page.

Your layout has been removed.
I may have been overreacting when I talked about thinking about closing my account. I don't think that will happen until it's officially confirmed that Google+ names will replace YT usernames entirely. That will be the main thing (unless something else comes up). I think some people may have unsubscribed watching my feed and thinking that there was no point subbing to someone who thought about leaving.
Simple YT changes are not enough and I can deal with those.

You're still smoking something though. YouTube has not been going against usernames, they've been going for them if anything. If they wanted people to only use their real names they wouldn't allow people to switch back to their usernames.

Well if that's the case, then I am relieved. I do want my videos to keep being viewed.

I would rather cut my own legs off and then be force fed them while watching Secret of NIMH 2 and then be forced to play CrazyBus than smoke anything.

I just heard that YouTube is not going to be compatible with Windows 7 when Windows 8 becomes very popular. Bullsh**.

This is still a theory however, so this may or may not be true.

That would suck if that was true =/ Not going to switch to Windows 8 until I get a new computer pretty much haha.

Websites can't be incompatible with a certain version of Windows.
