New YouTube Player Skin as of 2011-07-14 – Looks Awesome!

Published by JesterJuly 14, 2011Blog4 Comments

YouTube are redesigning a lot of things lately, one of those redesign projects include the YouTube player skin. For the record, the previous player was white and had a grey finish. Here’s how the new YouTube player design looks:

As you can see, it’s now black, not maximal black but close enough. We still have the red bar which shows where you are in the video. The loading bar is grey, so the screenshot shows a video which is fully loaded.

I personally think the change looks awesome, not that the previous YouTube player skin was bad but it’s a lot cooler with this darker skin. Post your comment on the change in the comment below.

    I’ve experienced the same problem with the black screen when viewing videos in fullscreen. YouTube will probably fix it ASAP :)

    Seems it wont go into fullscreen on my computer now :( I have the latest updated flash card but when I go to full screen I can hear it but its just a black screen. I love watching movies on here when theres a good one and Love watching videos, especially ones I grew up with in fullscreen. Player looks great but I’m hating this flaw :(
