Whoa?! Youtube update?

Okay, there seems to be a new youtube loading bar thing that hides completely. It’s all sleek and black and stylish… Me Gusta.
but it took away the Nyan Bar :(

As a white person, I am offended.

lol! it’s to go with their google thing. I think they’re bringing in more customizations to everything soon. This kinda feels like what they did with g-mail not too long ago.

I don’t really like this new bar. After years of having a grey bar it’s… sort of shocking. But I’m sure some day I’ll get used to it.
(And I’m sure Nyan Cat will return since NO ONE CAN STOP THE RAINBOW!)

Wow, this update is i guess okay, but i was so used to the old one….anyone know Why they changed it?

Jul 13, 2011 at 09:32PM EDT

Youtube likes to drastically change things every once in a while. This is just the first time in about three years that they’ve redone the old white/gray layout.

I like the new bar, except that it’s a little too similar to other video website’s bars. Hey, maybe we should request to have the bars customizable? That would be cool.

There’s an edit button on your last post to re-insert it. Provided you get this message within the next <7 minutes.

Isn’t it part of their Comic Panda thing?

By the way, you now have the option to hide all annotations.

They already had that.

I don’t remember it.

They’ve had the button for hiding annotations for quite a while. It’s just tricky to find.

While we’re talking about Youtube….

….How does this happen?

Jul 15, 2011 at 01:40PM EDT

If a lot of people view the video in a short amount of time, the view count will hang until it updates later or something. Happens a lot. It’s why the top voted comment is sometimes something like “Thumbs up if you were viewer 301.”

I noticed the new format a few days ago. It looks more like an iPhone or something. Meh.

Views take a lot longer to update.
I saw that happen with Meet the Medic, 300 views and 12000 likes.

It’s really annoying too :/

I have the problem:
When there’s an annotation at the very bottom of the video, I can’t click it.
That loading bar hides it when I hover on the video.

Jul 15, 2011 at 06:55PM EDT

i like the new youtube bar looks more up to date imo. Also i know this has nothing to do with the bar but i notice youtube loads faster now for me which is a really awesome thing:)

No one use Cosmic Panda. It’s really difficult to get used to. It’s too playlist-oriented. It won’t let you watch one video in a playlist, oh no. It will pull up the entire playlist, and won’t let you close it out. “Oh, but that’s not so bad, I’ll only watch that video and leave after that, right?” Wrong. Youtube really kicks you in the nuts by making all of the playlists autoplay. Not even a 5 second delay after the video is over to pause it and look at the comments. It sends you right to the next video. And there’s no way to turn off autoplay. (Or at least, if there is, Youtube did an impressive job of hiding it from me.) This is why Cosmic Panda sucks. Don’t use it for gods sakes.

This glitch happens because the video gets flooded with views after being uploaded, then after 1 hour or so it’s fixed.

At the bottom of the page, there’s a bar.
At the right side of the bar there’re buttons, one of which is…
