Changing the channel

Okay! Things are moving along - your feedback has been invaluable and we've made a number of changes to the channel beta over the past few weeks in response:
  • The subscribe button is now yellow again :)
  • You can now choose a featured video
  • Lots and lots of bug fixes (and slyth66, your channel should be good now!)
  • You can now link directly to a specific video & a specific playlist on your channel - just copy and paste the URL you see while playing the video you'd like to link to - here's an example from vlogbrothers' channel
Some other things that are coming soon:
  • Bigger thumbnails & fonts on the right hand side - we're going to try this out, thanks to your feedback that the list of videos might have been just a little too small
  • Honors
  • Some more interactivity underneath the currently playing video - we've especially heard your feedback that you'd like comments to be better integrated
  • Other minor bug fixes
We've also added a few more channels to our list of "Our favorite new channel designs" - check them out on the right hand side of the blog.

Finally, we're happy to announce that we're getting closer to a full release to all users - and you can now opt-in to the channels beta by simply visiting the old Channel Design page. So, the question is: What's left that you absolutely-must-have-on-your-channel-or-else-you'll-totally-lose-it?! Let us know in the comments!

  2. Hello beloved Youtube,
    My channel is a travel guru channel, and something very dear to me- the medals for views daily, weekly, monthly- has disappeared! Please bring it back. It's a way of feedback from my visitors and a source of encouragement for me.
    Thank you,
    Youtube user: Wrenwren10.

  3. When are you planning on making it a full release (as in like the next month or so?). Also, I have a small bug - everytime I try and use the "Sunlight" theme, all my buttons become invisible.

  4. Great update, for the most part. Things are coming together nicely. The 'rating' is still stuck at 4 stars, and partner videos still lack ads. Hopefully this gets fixed soon.

  6. great update!!

    one thing that might be cool to have is that "watch in bigger size" that some show channels have... it doesnt necesarilly increase quiality but it increases the size of the player (the same size as an HD video)

    that would be nice to have...

    thnx and keep up the good work...

  7. I'm happy that these changes have taken place. Thanks!

  9. Hi, what I miss on the new design is transparency! :)
    Would be nice if it could find its way into the final version!

    I also really appreciate your acoming changes concerning the thumbnails and the interactivity.
    Interactivity is very important for me! :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Youtube should make selecting a featured video either done by copy/pasteing URL, or clicking a button next to the Favorite, Share, etc. buttons on that video.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think one thing that's really lacking in the new design is the ability to change the transparency. What would be the point of having a background if you can't really see it?

    Also, I've been wondering if you could please fix my channel. My featured video doesn't show up anymore.

    My channel is:

  12. I seriously hope that one of the bug fixes coming soon fixes the problem with some people's channel layout...including mine!

    My channel layout has been messed up for more than a week and I can't fix it! Please Youtube...fix this!

  13. I might have come across a bug within the video that is featured on the channel.
    Mine seems to be stuck on a old featured video which i have tried getting rid of via the original channel version but no luck.

    On another note, maybe upgrade the vlog to create a fully featured video plus comments, i always felt the vlog needed some work, it was never that attractive on the original channel, and bonding comments and the ability for users to also theme up the vlog would certainly do it alot of good.

    Keep it up guys!

  14. I'd like another box to display my playlists or other videos, favorites, etc. I love having ALL of my videos displayed right next to the featured videos... but then there isn't a home for those other videos on the profile!

    You guys are doing an awesome job.. check out my profile when you get a chance! Still working on it, but it's getting there.. http://youtube.com/ijustine

  15. I am liking the direction this design is going, though there are several major issues which have been bugging me that should probably be implemented by the final release. I apologize if any of these have been implemented and they have not shown up on my channel yet, so please reply if these are already available to most users:

    1) There needs to be a way to make the "Featured Content Set" a list of all of a user's Playlists, as opposed to having to select only one playlist. I record concert videos to local artists, and with a constantly growing number of playlists being formed on my channel for these video series, I find it to be really difficult to have only one being visible upon initial viewing of my channel.

    2) The featured video on a channel should go back to being URL-based, instead of being forced to select a video from the "Featured Content Set." Under the current design, if I choose to select a playlist (since I cannot select all of my playlists for initial viewing), I am only able to select a featured video from that set; what if I want to have a video of another one of my playlists visible along with the featured playlist?

    3) There should be a Content Set for hand-picked videos by a user, just like on the older layout. Since I upload my concert videos in-bulk, the currently available options are lacking to both me and the users who view my profile, since they would primarily be blasted with a list of recent videos from only one artist instead of a bunch of them. I also have other older videos on different subjects in my profile which I wish for people to still view.

    4) Playlists should be able to be arranged in any order a user wishes. The ability to have more than three displayed playlists is a step in the right direction, though I want some of my newer playlists to be placed above my older playlists based on their importance (so basically, there should be more options than just chronological order).

    5) Opacity needs to make a return to channel layouts. Part of the uniqueness of channel pages comes from a user's background, and with the new channel design being focused on occupying more of most users' screen space, backgrounds should be able to be slightly viewed from behind page content.

    As I previously mentioned, this channel design is definitely a step in the right direction, though there are some serious issues which need to be addressed to accomodate the interests of the wide variety of users Youtube pulls in every day. If you all are able to address most (or hopefully all) of my mentioned items in this comment, then I'm sure that many more people will be happy with your services. Thanks!

  19. I am new to the beta version so I am not sure if it has already been addressed, but my channel banner keeps disappearing. Every time I go to edit something, I have to re-upload my banner photo or it will disappear.

  24. this new channel design is great, i realy love it. But i think it would be better and more personalized if one could move the tabs such as subsriptions, freinds, recent activity and such by dragging them across the screen with your mouse.Also a widening/lengthening tool that you could use to shape your freinds, subscribers, etc tabs on your homepage would be great.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hey Guys awesome stuff!

    Some things id like to point out are when the friends and subscriber modules are positioned on the right, the rows of pictures arent very well proportioned horizontaly - bits of wasted space! =)

    Also i think it would be really cool to have a 25 charcter personal message area under the main heading and where it currently says "joeblog's channel" between the channel picture and the subscribe button.

    Also how about a search box next to the "playlists" button. This way regular viewers of channels with large quantites of videos can directly search for a specific video or keyword.

    Cheers!

  26. Hey Brian & others working on Youtube beta,

    I applaud the development and realize that the kinks take time to work out. We appreciate "renovations" and progress to Youtube, that's always a good idea. I also, just recently put a lot more effort into developing my channel/brand, and just received honors! So, I played around with the Beta channel, than decided...no I can't give up the honors, worked too hard for that. But of course, I didn't realize Beta was a one time deal! If you could please send me back the chance to work in the Beta channel, especially you are going to implement the "honors" again, I'm all for it!

  27. Hello. I'm from Italy, and i test the first beta channel from /super_seekrit page :D Today, i read this article. I decide to try the new method, so i putted back my old channel (the old graphic :P ). But now i have a problem. If i go to /my_profile page, i cant change the channel. The super_seekrit page redirect to my_profile page. In /my_profile_theme same thing, i cant change the skin. Now, how i can change skin?

    After this question, i have to tell a bug. From today, 22 May, in my channel the event list was deleted. I think this is a conseguence of the new features, but i dont know. In the setting i can see the event list. And now, whit the old channel i cant see the list! I have a musician channel, and they are important, but not necessary ;)

    So, after this, thanks! Thanks for all! In italy this cheat is still secret now :D Really sorry for bad english, tanti saluti!

  28. Nice, however... where exactly are my honours supposed to be? I certainly can't see them. (http://youtube.com/WiiloveitTV)

    More suggestions for future:
    A video length to be displayed alongside the video's name whilst scrolling
    Be able to watch a featured video in full screen and show videos that aren't normally supposed to be embedded on other sites than YouTube
    The ability to hide certain videos from showing up in the "uploads" section (for people creating YouTube annotation games and whatnot)
    The ability to scroll through the whole description box of the featured video
    The ability to scroll through all friends and subscribers in the same window, and possibly see when they are online with a little "online now" icon in the corner of their picture?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Opacity for the content boxes would be a nive feature to retain from the old design, as well as the ability to turn autoplay on and off fro the featured video. Thank-you.

    ReplyDelete
  30. hi. i recently got the beta upgrade and i want a improvement. be able to remove your age and etc.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I agree with the following users on the transparency/opacity issue: user:martyarts, user:Quiet Riot, user:Chris (point #5), user:dark navi, user:Hayden. I'd *really* like this back, because it was such an awesome feature & really highlighted the background art (which people utilize for many various reasons to get exposure for their channel).

    I agree with user:Chris' 1st point (about making "Featured Content Set" being able to select any of a user's playlists that they may have made, instead of some defaults like "My Favorites"). Freedom to feature user-made playlists would be great.

    Finally, one more weird bug I picked up on just now was when I went to a channel with auto-play enabled; if I tried to navigate/scroll down the screen while the video buffered, when the video ceased buffering it went straight back to the top of the page (where the auto-playing video is). Quite annoying, but I'm unsure if this is a coding bug or just a .flv quirk.

    Keep up the stellar work people!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I can't see a way to change the channel name now - is this still possible? (I'm not talking about the url)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Spacing Options would be nice the ability to decide how big boxes are or how they are spaced but good so far guys

    ReplyDelete
  34. It took me a couple of minutes to re-figure out how to choose the video I wanted to display on-channel, but now it's great and I got it all sorted out!

    Let me know if you like the channel or not.

  36. Great updates...
    Except I really need a transparent button. We can't see the pictures in the background!
    And...
    After beta ends, you should make a button that says that you can switch at ANY time! Over and over again!So if we want the old one back! Because not everybody will want the new one, my friends didn't like the layout much :(

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ok, actually, how do I put a specific video! It just put playlists and what kind! Not a URL!

  39. I really love the beta channels! I've had mine for a while now, but a glitch has come up on it recently. All the boxes are below the "about me" section and it stretches the page terribly. I'd love if you'd fix this, I put a lot of time into my channel and I don't know how to fix it myself. Other than that, I love what you're doing with this! :)

  41. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
    It just gets better all the time. :p

    I love the enlarging of the videos on the side there,and also the yellow subscribe button. I know lots of users want transparency, but meh. Forget about it, we'll live,

    I sorta dislike the change to the buttons you added at the top... They're outlined in white and it looks weird.

    But I cannot complain! I'm in love with this new design! Keep it coming!!

    And thanks for removing the link to the blog at the top. Now I can appreciate the page so much more.

  42. Hey, what happened to the featured video box?

    The design is somehow messed up in the sense that it doesn't look as nice as it did before these changes?

    It used to be all one color now it's different! And the buttons next to the subscribe button, on the right and that whole area is not looking as nice as it did before!!! please do something!

    ReplyDelete
  43. The larger thumbnails are nice. Two complaints though. About 20 pixels of the bottom of the thumbnails seem to get cut off, and longer titled videos get cut off on the right.

  44. I love it. It gets better each time.

    And yes, integrating the comments would be awesome.

  46. Hey, Love the new Beta, but the original embedding code that came up when I switched over, bailed on the site I am designing it for. Couldn't find it when I went back to the beta page!!!
    now just have the small embedding, as I had to switch back to the old channel style to get that.
    How can I get that larger embedding info again, so I can embed it on my personal website?
    and why does the "about me" section with age and my name and everything, not update my changes properly? I unchecked the age and my name, more than once...at first the age just kept coming back up. then I put my name up and it never showed up. So unchecked it and hit save...and wow...it showed up!???

    crazy!
    can this be helped? thanks a million.

  47. Okay. I swear that there are buttons there one day and not the next!! LOL!! found the embedder!! but they keep messing up my site personal site that I am designing!! ??
    hope this stops before I go public. please help with what was mentioned above! thanks.

  48. The background is obstructed by the wrapper or whatever. I made a lot of custom channel designs and I put cool background images in them, but I can't see them due to the background wrapper. The only way they can BARELY be seen is if I repeat the image. Please help!

  49. I have always enjoyed being able to sort a YTers videos using the 'most viewed' feature. Either it is not there any longer or I am missing it completely.
    Please put it back.
    An alphabetical or chronological sorting of subscribers would be a very nice feature also.
    Thanks for listening.

  50. Can you PLEASE fix the subscription box at some point?! It's been broken for AGES! It keeps putting videos back in that i've already watched DAYS ago, and sometimes it doesn't show the new videos of the people i subscribe to!

  51. After seeing this,
    "What's left that you absolutely-must-have-on-your-channel-or-else-you'll-totally-lose-it?! Let us know in the comments!"
    a person certainly gets a take it or leave it feeling.

    Why give an option to upload a background image and a checkbox to repeat it or not if it isn't visible on the page?

    I suppose you can't please everybody and you're not going to leave well enough alone. :)

  53. also, whenever i watch a video with annotations on my channel, the annotations appear on each video.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I am having issues so I have downgraded to the old channel until this big issue can be fixed.

    My main problem is that the colors of the theme I made aren't working properly. (and it used to, so it isn't my settings). It shows white link text on white background when it isn't set like that. The background color is white, when it should be black to go with the background image. Anyway to fix?

    Also, links aren't clickable in the channel info area of the channel which is important for me to link people to my twitter and other locations to keep up to date with me.

    ReplyDelete
  55. why can't I delete themes I have created? That seems like a big oversight. Otherwise I think it's pretty much complete for the standard YouTube user.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Make all videos in my uploads clickable so you can go to the page to rate and comment - rather than on the channel, its just messy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. There are some serious problems with the colour pallets! You have conflicting with the 'Wrapper text colour' if you choose fx a black 'Wrapper Colour' and a white 'Background colour'! You need to make an option with more different colour setups, fx one for each element/module!

    My bug: I can't seem to upload a background image. My image isn't too big, but instead of loading the image the loading circle spins continuously and nothing happens. It won't upload in any browser. My page is http://www.youtube.com/user/srizziler . It should be noted that the first time I've been able to edit anything without an error is with the new channel.

  66. As has been mentioned above, playlists should be able to be shifted around into whatever order we want (the actual playlist folders, not necessarily what's inside) and also where's the alphabetical function? Crazy that this isn't possible yet. It's a basic function. This has been requested by lots of users. Thanks for the changes but since I noticed some comments about no transparency, I'll wait a bit...

    ReplyDelete
  67. Thanks for the new channel, I love It

    ReplyDelete
  68. Is there a way to get annotations to work on the featured video?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Here's some stuff that needs to get fixed.
    The ratings of whatever featured video I have (or when some one clicks on a different video in the list) is always 1 star less than it actually is. my featured 5 star video is listed as 4, but I know it's not.
    Transparency needs to come back, no one can even see any backgrounds.
    Also, if I post links to multiple websites in the channel description, then the URLs need to become clickable hotlinks. It's extremely important that people don't have to select, copy/paste, because then the probably won't even bother.

    Also, I have a question:
    What's this thing about linking directly to a specific video or playlist on my channel using copy/paste? What is that, and how do I do it?
    thanks, youtube.com/sten4sw

    ReplyDelete
  70. I'd really like to see the thumbnails in the playlist to the right of the video box go back to being small, or at least allow this option. It looked so much nicer! I really don't like it now. It looks tacky. Also, I'd like to see a separate box below the main box for favorites.

    Another thing; I'd like to see user/channel statuses appear the way they do like on facebook. Make them more seen... maybe ABOVE the recent activity box or at the top of the page. It seems kind of pointless to post a status if it just blends in with everything else.

    Also, it would be nice to have some space for image placement... I'm not asking for a lot, like you give corporate pages, but somewhere we can put 'something'.... space above the page like in the old format... and a box in the profile would be nice. It's just not fair. Would also be nice if we had the option of making the avatar bigger.

    One other thing. I need a place where I can put links! Check out my page!

  74. Hi,

    The beta channel thing is awesome, but i would like to be able to make the boxes transparent again, if that is not there already.

    Thanks ~Rosie132465~

    ReplyDelete
  75. You should be able to directly go to a video's page, rather than be forced to view all videos from the profile which results in issues such as improper HD playback.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Great work again.
    I would like to see the number of comments and the ratings on my videos.
    Also the length of the video would be nice have on the video thumbnail, like in the old layout.
    Missing sort functionality, i.e. sort by views and comments.
    The thumbnails size should be chooseable. Lastly, I think that all beta users should have a recognition of helping in developing the new layout. Maybe an honour :-)

    ReplyDelete
  77. You used to be able to add links in the channel info section. Now those links are not clickable. You should allow anything that starts with www. to be clicked.

    Also the channel module should be moveable. The layout of modules should be totally up to the user.

    Thanks,

  78. My old featured video keeps showing in the new beta Channel (it was a link)... I want it to be gone.. don't know how to? I want to show the most recent one instead.. :P
    If it's the old Channel, it the old featured link video doesn't show, but the newest added video does.. :P

    ReplyDelete
  79. I don't know if anyone already told that, but since I have a lot of different videos on my channel, I'd like to see a possibility to search them. So, if someone is looking for a specific video, he'd just type in the search terms and he'd get a matching list of results - just like on the old channel layout. That would be much more confortable than scrolling through all my videos.

  80. Oh, something I just noticed.

    Am I the only one that doesn't have working annotations on the new channels? Or is this for everyone?

    And if it is for everyone, I'd like to see those start working on the channels.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Well, this new layout is great and all but i have one, no two, small problems.

    First is that the Channel can't be transparent, so i can't see my background.

    Second is that when i click on the "Playlists" button it shows me a playlist that i have already deleted, even if i try to update it it still shows me the same thing. So i'd like that fixed and i hope if comes out of Beta soon.

  86. i luv the new beta channels but i have 2 problems.
    1. you cant pick the precist color your want like on tje old youtube channel.
    2. The big box that is filled with my friends,comments,and other stuff; the free part of the box should be clear so you can see the backgroungd you have because nothing is there and it doesent looke very appealing (wellto me).
    I hope youe will do somthing youtube! :D

    I got a wierd glitch in my channel's video list. The list itself goes down lower than it should and all the images are wonky as well.

    Also, the "All", "Uploads", and "Playlists" font is really pixely until you highlight it with the mouse.

  88. Hey ...I'm loving the new channel updates, but someone told me that they tried to comment my channel three times and the comment wouldn't post. I was wondering if that was just a weird three-time thing, or if my channel has a glitch?

  90. IceFlowStudios seems to have two modules that I would like to add but cannon find. They have a "Connect with" box under their videos. They also have a logo box in the bottom left. Any help would be appreciated.

  91. I really don't like how the new Videos and Favorites boxes in the header look. The new one is too big, but the last one was wonderful and looked fantastic.

  92. I would probably be more likely to use the new beta channel if 1)The avatar wasn't so small; 2)the background still had transparency control, and 3) the links in my channel description worked. Other than that, it looks really cool!

  95. A couple things that come to mind:

    The ability to sort a user's videos by stats:
    Views, Comments, Ratings, Faves, and Vid Responses would be amazing.

    And links in the main channel description used to work (for partners at least) but are still broken apart on mine.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Keep it up guys. Improving well. I'm switching back to the beta once the whole interactivity under the current playing video and better comment intergration has been sorted out because i got a lot of messages from subscribers visiting my channel and not being able to view or comment the video properly like they normally would be able to. However i love everything so far and you guys are all doing such a good job. It's going a long really well and can't wait to switch back soon :) Keep it up!

  99. I agree. Transparency would be very helpful. Give us an option to select whether we want the "Wrapped" area or not or atleast a degree of transparency on the modules.

  100. Sorry to double post. I've found that there is no way that I can see for someone to subscribe to Playlists. We're trying to start a collab and don't want to open another YouTube channel. Having people sub to Playlists was the solution.

    It would be nice to have this included.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I think it's a bit messy to be honest. Plus, no links in the channel description?

    ReplyDelete
  102. I agree with Martyarts - transparency would be great - I switched back to the old because there was no transparency. I tried to alter my page in the new beta version and lost a few of my playlists in the process!! No longer have them in the old version.

  110. HERE'S AN IDEA! It would be cool if you had a video slider concept like you see in apple products... like iTunes. Make it three-dimensional. Provide different options. Put it right below the header, or to the side as a vertical version. Providing many options to channel owners would make for a unique channel to channel experience. Would provide opportunity to design channels that don't all look the same.

    Check out my channel. It's taking off like wildfire!

    ReplyDelete
  111. It would be awesome if you could toggle things such as whether you want the description on your featured video, or the "share, favorite, playlists, flag".

    Could you also add a proper colour wheel in the options. Choosing the colours from the palette doesn't always offer ones you want, and to find a nice HEX code, i'd have to open photoshop.

    Instead of having a scroll bar for the list of videos on the right, could you implement it like the comments system? I love how when you click on "Uploads" or "Playlists" at the top, it just smoothly fades into the content. You should do this, so if there is a lot to show, the next page of videos fades in.

    MORE FONTS AND OPTIONS FOR FONT SIZE!

  118. Over the weekend, I came up with what may be usefull suggestions.

    1) Put the "Add to Quicklist" back on the videos. Some people don't like to view certain videos from a channel in a specific order or like to watch videos in a playlist with other channels and still.

    2) When you click on one of the videos to the right of the Featured Video, it will be played in the featured video. However, it seems it will also do create a playlist depending on the upload date [with most recent being number 1] and will go to the next video when the video finished. Now a lot of people will have a problem with this, especially if they create shows in a specific order. Lets say a channel decided to do a show or has some opinions that is 45 minutes. They divided the video into 5 videos due to the youtube limit and named them Video 1, Video 2, ... They then upload to Youtube in that order, first Video 1, then Video 2, ... If you watch it on a channel, it will say Video 1 is video number 5 on the playlist and Video 5 is video number 1. At the end of seeing Video 1, it will automatically play the next video, which should be Video 2. However, since it depends on the date uploaded, it goes to a video that is unrelated, making the viewer have to search for Video 2. The same happens to each, ie. Video 2 goes to Video 1, Video 3 goes to Video 2, Video 4 goes to Video 3, and Video 5 goes to Video 4. In other words, the owner has to upload the series backwords to display the videos in the correct sequence.

    Now my suggestion for this is to either turn off the feature completely, allow the viewer to turn it off with a link on the channel page, or allow the user to reverse the playlist with a click on the channel page.

    Sorry for being a little long in the post. I just try to be as desciptive as I can.

    ReplyDelete
  119. -This upgrade makes the background images useless!
    -I sometimes make others' videos my featured video but it's impossible with the new one
    -I like to see the description of the playlists without clickin on them..
    -channel owners' information box should be at the top of page,not under featured video or uploads etc or we must have the chance to choose it
    -there isn't enough options in channel design
    I really didn't like this upgrade:(

    ReplyDelete
  120. My channel had this really annoying glitch where the featured video wouldn't have sound when played. Please fix that. Thanks YouTube!

    ReplyDelete
  121. Hello. Thanks for the updates. Did I miss on the Beta channel where one could click on "more info," as on the original setup where one can see all the lyrics that are sometimes posted with videos? Anyone? Thankyou.

    ReplyDelete
  122. This is going to be an awesome update, but sometimes a person wants their channel to be "pretty", and the most important factor of that is the background picture, so you gotta include the window transparency.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Yeah, that's what I was thinking about! Transparency!! The windows need to have an opaque setting so people can view the background. Also, annotations don't show up on my channel, but when I view the video off of the channel there are annotations. See here:

    http://www.youtube.com/user/mtdhlite

    The featured video on my page doesn't show the annotations I put on it, and you can't see the image in the background as well as you can on the original design.

    ReplyDelete
  124. *****MUST HAVES!*****
    - The unsubscribe button should be gray like the old channels.
    - The channel type badge should be underneath the profile picture like the old channels
    - City should be shown in the channel description like the old channels (it only has hometown)
    - Profile picture should be the same size as the old channels.
    - The comments should have no scroll bar like the old channels. The scroll bar is unnecessary and makes it cluttered and harder to read.
    - The uploads tab should be renamed to videos just like the old channels
    - Should be able to rate videos from the channel page
    - MAKE IT SO WE CAN SEE THE BACKGROUND BETTER!

    ReplyDelete
  125. MUST HAVE: Video annotations on videos on channels

    ReplyDelete
  126. MUST HAVE!!!
    - USE A VIDEO URL FOR A FEATURED VIDEO

  127. Channel description should be at the top!!!

  128. MUST HAVE: Be able to have video log not attached to the other videos. Have a separate thing for it like on the old channels.

    ReplyDelete
  129. MUST HAVE!!!
    - Must be able to post links in your channel description (not the website spot) and for it to be clickable (underlined)

    ReplyDelete
  130. I love the new channels. I only have two gripes:

    1) the major one is that the Youtube banner/navbar at the top of the channel is waaay to big, white and obtrusive. Is there any way we could make it small again, like the old channels? Better yet, could we have it change color to match the theme we choose? That would be amazing, and allow for more seamless design.

    2) this one is minor, but I too would love to have transparency options back. Again, allows for more artful design.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Is it possible to make the "View comments, related videos and more" in BOLD or even a button?

    The sad part is that I changed to the new design and someone unsubscribed. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  132. Ditto for most of what Mattjsrules said!

    I tried the Beta for about 10 mins lol...I have been really excited about it coming, but it needs to defintiely have all the things the old channels have, not to take away anything.

    And where is the font chooser? I didn't see it! I thought this was going to be similar to the MySpace 2.0 Profile in customization which has been a wonderful upgrade.

    Another great thing to have would be the option to move around the modules for a custom layout, I didn't even see the old option to move boxes left or right. :(

    ReplyDelete
  133. Hi!
    It would be nice if you were able to upload your own picture to the description box. :--) And please make channel boxes option where you can make them invicible as much as you want! Old version did have that. So then I could see background image!

  138. I'm 'brainouty' on Youtube.

    MUST-HAVES: Will the playlists finally be posted in alphabetical order? It's such a royal pain for a reader to go through a long series of playlists that are in random order.

    Another must have: will the older videos which were originally shot to HD scale now receive HD treatment, or must they be uploaded again to qualify?

    Wish list: Will one be able to force the entire video list into a given order, rather than the default of last video first? Can one get better fonts like Andy, Comic Sans, Cooper Black, Rockwell? Will one be able to put each component anywhere on the page?

    The beta channel page has way too much white space for my taste, so I prefer the old Youtube format. but I guess some of you all like that. I'm a one-pager person, and hate scrolling.

    THANK YOU FOR HQ and HIGH DEFINITION. Educational videos showing a blackboard, whiteboard, or spreadsheet/computer screen tutorials all need it. Before you did this, the only place to get high definition was blip.tv. Now Youtube is easier to use than blip in high definition. THANK YOU AGAIN (see my later exegesis videos versus the earlier ones, to see the huge difference HD makes).

    I want to make a thank-you video to Youtube, but so far my 'beta' video is too amatuerish. Will get some help.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Missing "Search" box. Making it extremely difficult to search through videos.

    P.S. It's looking a lot like a MySpace setting, too much stuff on one page! I'd like a page that displays videos only, the old layout is fine.

  145. I know I mentioned this but my estrogen wants to say it again,lol. At some pont can we be able to either uplad an image or extend our background to the big empty space on the bottom right of our profiles?

  152. What you ABSOLUTELY must do is make the new design optional. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES is this to be forced onto users. I cannot stress that enough. Additionally, the new version must NOT become the default version from which people would have to opt out to get back to the current version. If you need a template for its introduction, look to Google Chrome. People can download it if they want to but it's not been forced on anyone nor was it made Google's default search engine. Honestly, I still fail to see how this proposed version is better than what we have. It isn't and I don't see why you'd want to make the change in the first place.

    ReplyDelete
  153. There is a lot i enjoy about the new design, which is a good thing! But the only bad thing is that I can't view my profile how the PUBLIC does. I don't enjoy always being edit mode, and being a partner, i would like to see the ads in the videos actually on the channel. I hope that gets fixed and isnt apart of the new design. It's probably one of the main ways of generating revenue.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Furthere to my last post, this arrogant "absolutely-must-have-on-your-channel-or-else-you'll-totally-lose-it?!" attitude suggests that YouTube STILL really doesn't understand the concept of not forcing change onto users. After the bulletins debacle, you appear to want to come back with more unwanted force-feeding. I'm loathed to offer suggestions for something I truly hope I never to have to deal with. However, I recommend greater flexibility in channel layout. The video list is godawful as compared to main page thumbnails. Users should be able to relegate the 'Recent Activities' box to a less-prominent position and keep the current layout of video thumbnails. Those vids should continue to list how long they've been around and clicking on them should bring the user to a window that includes a comment box. Having the video play on the channel, itself, should be discontinued.

    ReplyDelete
  155. i am trying out this new layout and im undesided as of this moment.
    i like the looks and the possibilities of doing some page editing right on the page itself.
    on major problem i'm having is when someone views my videos, they will have to, first figuar out how to & then go to a completely different page in order to comment or rate them.
    another problem is that i'm not seeing the 'view in HD' button any longer and my videos are not playing in steiro. all of my videos are music videos and are recorded in steiro and uploaded in HD. is this my personial problem or is this a clitch in the new beta.??
    i think change is good for improvment sake but not just for change sake.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Hey!I was wondering if the enable transparency option would be available later on.

    ReplyDelete
  161. First of all, I run a channel dedicated to a famous recording artist in the Philippines, Rachelle Ann Go. I love the new channel design, but I agree with what others suggested:

    1. Like the original, please maintain the ability to sort videos by most views or most discussed. This is an ABSOLUTE MUST! This is what helps your popular videos get a LOT more views and/or comments.

    2. Like the original, even "regular" youtube accounts had a small space at the top, so people could customize their background image and treat this space as banner space for useful information. I personally add crucial promotional info regarding Rachelle Ann's albums, so her fans can easily see them.

    3. Like the original, have the ability to make the transparency of the boxes customizable. I worked hard on my background image to show Rachelle Ann's current album, which helps to promote it to her fans, but now people can't see it.

    Here is my channel:

  166. Good work guys. The new design is definitely a step in the right direction. There is of course room for improvement and it's possible that you guys are already working on the following suggestions:

    Please include the transparency feature and an ability to have the channel info/profile in the top left hand corner and the featured video next to it like in the old version. I don't like the idea of having the channel info/profile under the featured video.

  180. Just found out about the new beta channel and immediately switched. I really like the the new channel design. Although, there are a few minor things I would like changed.

    1) Have a transparency option

    2) Have "most discussed" and "most viewed"

    3) Have your channel info at the top left instead of the bottom left.

    Other than that, I'm happy; except the fact that youtube, itself, is changing into a marketing and advertising website. Rather than a website for the people. I guess that's what happens when Google takes over things: $$$

  182. Hey YT,

    I'm gonna go back to the old profile design for now, and I feel bad cos you have me in your favourite channels, so I wanted to let you know. The one and only reason I'm doing it is because I'm noticing a big decline in AdSense and it's been long enough now without it that I need it to be back on my profile. As soon as AdSense comes on the new design I'll come right back, I like the new look a lot better :)

  183. Is it possible, that the "super_seekrit" link isn't working anymore? A friend of mine tried it a few weeks ago and it worked. Today i tried about 4 times now and it just brings me to the normal channel settings. No option to change design or something. Am i the only one with this problem?

  184. Please make the video's title a link so people can comment and fav more easily. Then please move the information box and stop the comments being scroll-able. It makes it look less nice and messier depending on the browser you use.

  185. Make things be able to be transparent as well and please make some of the boxes slimmer and less broad.

  186. I think the new channels feels way too heavy in a way... Please when you "release" them, make it an option to use the old channel.

  187. The switch from old to the new design is only possible if you have chosen "English" as language. If you choose "German", you dont see the "upgrade window".

  188. I agree with Nerimon. The ads on partner channels need to come back ASAP. Hopefully this will roll out in the next set up updates. I'd hate to have to switch back to the old channel, after I've spent so much time on the new one. :)

  189. Hi again,

    Just had some quick thoughts of what I think you could do....

    1) When editing, have COMPLETE flexibility by being able to move anything between the two "boxes"

    2) It would be cool if there was a tool that would allow you to customize your background on YouTube sort of like paint.

    3) Audio- It would be cool if you could have music playing in the background on your channel. To avoid copyright violations, youtube could have a specific playlist to choose from...and if people don't like the selection they could donate money to YouTube for a specific song.

    4) YouTube Apps- Being able applications on your channel such as mini-games, etc.

    These are just some ideas I thought would make the YouTube channels popular. Instead of just changing the design, you should introduce a new "something" that you can ONLY get on the new channel. If you do this, millions of users will switch.

  190. Hi Youtube!

    I'm a Partner but I can't seem to get my main video to auto-play in the new channels. Its weird because I see all the other parters have that feature.

    My channel is: youtube.com/FlashFacilitoTips

    Thanks!

    Alex

  192. Thanks so much for this. I was looking for a way to shuffle modules around earlier today and then I found out about this beta stuff so I thought I'd give it a look; it's just what I was after! :)

  193. Hello, Youtube!
    I'm pretty big into playlists.

    2 issues:
    1.) Because I almost exclusively use playlists, I noticed that if I'm logged out of youtube and view my channel, it says "s0apscum has no videos available." and displays none of my playlists. (If I'm logged-in, it does show them)

    2.) I would like to be able to save my channel view such that people will see ALL of my playlists by default (rather than just 3 'featured' playlists plus the featured video, as it is right now.) I can get there if I click 'playlists', then the 3x3-square icon, next to 'edit', but I can't edit/save it such that this is my default channel view.

    Please email / message me with any questions or for clarification. THANKS!

    My channel is:
    http://www.youtube.com/s0apscum
    (NOTE:the second letter in "s0apscum" is a 'zero')

  194. ADDENDUM: Because of issue #1 in my previous comment, I noticed that the youtube blog web-element (that was recently released) doesn't seem to pull in my youtube playlists either, into my blog?

  195. Hello. I have already posted on the previous blog about my channel being broken in the beta design and thus I had to revert to the old design for people to actually be able to access my videos.
    When I read this blog, I hoped the issue had been fixed for all users (Not only Slyth66)
    I am a bit sad that it was not the case.
    My channel is still broken, the video module at the top is still absent.
    Please fix this soon, thank you.

  196. Please bring back transparency asap !
    what's happen to the large play window when viewing HD videos
    now despite my videos being in Full HD the video play back remains the same size !!
    The " You Tube" water mark on each video gets right in my face PLEASE tone it down a little I KNOW am on " You Tube " I don't need the reminder right in my face it spoils my videos
    Gone back to the old design !
    Thanks

  197. Right now my old channel shows the title, "Teach For America" on the top. I like that. My new channel shows "teachforamerica" (my username)-- is there a way to change that?

    Also, I'm not sure if this happened because of redesign, but my URL no longer is working (wwww.youtube.com/teachforamerica). It should direct people to www.youtube.com/user/teachforamerica but instead it gives this error message: "This channel is not available"
