YouTube’s new desktop video player – A detailed look

Overall, changes aren’t too dramatic, although the slicker design has pleased many users who have criticised the video player for years.

Despite a couple of complaints online, YouTube will be pleased to know that most YouTubers are happy with the update. Twitter user @theneedledrop tweeted to YouTube: “I know everybody hates on you when you do something they don’t like, but I wanted to complement you on the new video player.”

Here at Tube Chum, we think YouTube’s latest video player design is a welcome change from the dated look of the previous version.
