Putting the "updates" in "here are some updates"

More channel updates have been released since our last post:
  • Honors are back
  • Video thumbnails are now a little larger based on feedback
  • More interaction options underneath the video player, including a more prominent link to the standard "watch" page
  • You can now feature a video by URL
  • Plenty of bug fixes (e.g. most people with buggy / broken layouts should now be fixed)
A few of the things we're looking at, based on your feedback:
  • Transparency options (this is a bit tricky to do, so no promises)
  • Ability to rate & comment on the video from the channel
  • Sort controls for uploads (especially most viewed)
  • Counts for the number of videos in each section
  • Letting you show the list of your playlists as your "Featured Content Set"
  • Order controls
  • Making URLs autolink
  • And, of course, lots of bug fixes thanks to your reports (including letting you go back to featuring your latest video once you've featured by URL, showing annotations in the featured video, and the "infinite circle" problem where videos don't load when you scroll down - thanks Chris, Patrick, muzik4machines, and others)
And, for partners that have asked - yes, ad support is coming soon too.

Keep the awesome feedback and bug reports coming,

-Brian

  1. Thanks for the updates! Keep 'em coming! :)

  2. Hah, it's becoming more difficult to point out issues with the beta layout. ;)

    I'm noticing that the default video on my channel does not show its annotations. At first, I thought that it was because the annotation started at 0:00, so I bumped it up a second (to appear at 0:01), and it still wouldn't show up. However, viewing a video from the channel's list of videos displays annotations fine, as does viewing the default video from its actual video page.

    I'm also noticing that some video ratings on channel pages are different from their ratings on the actual video page. For instance, my lowest-rated video has 3 stars over five ratings on the video page, but on the channel page, it's at 2 stars over five ratings.

    The "infinite loading circle" thingy when scrolling down my list of playlist videos has continued to be a random occurence, but it's good to see that you all are working out that bug.

    Other than that, I haven't found any major bugs with the latest beta channel updates. The only other features I can think of (some of which you have noted to be working on), are:
    - The option to let the featured content set for a channel to be a list of all playlists, as opposed to only one select playlist.
    - Further sorting controls for videos, such as allowing users to select nine or so hand-picked videos for display on their channel, or allowing the list of playlists to be displayed in something other than chronological order.
    - A full screen option for viewing videos on a user's channel, either on the video player, or on some place near the player.
    - Randomizing the list of subscribers, friends, and subscriptions on a user's channel page upon each new page view. At the moment, the same people are displayed at all times on the lists.

    Again, thanks for all of the hard work placed into these updates to the beta channel layout. The new layouts, when worked with, definitely have more charm than the older layouts. I'll be sure to comment again if there are any more issues that pop up with the layout.

  3. please add an option for transparency

    ReplyDelete
  4. IceflowStudios - thanks!

    Chris - thanks - forgot to call out the annotations bug. And you should totally be able to able to show your list of playlists by default. (Updated the post to include these.) The "rating stars rounding down" is also on our list. And we're looking at what additional order controls we can add. Thanks for all your feedback! Sorry we're making it harder for you to point out issues. ;)

    Pascal - we'll see what we can do, but this is tricky.

  5. As I said at least a million times before, old bulletins back would be nice. Thanks! =D

    ReplyDelete
  6. the URL Auto-link feature would be nice not only for the video description (which by the way, thanks for working on, however the formatting is gone, it's all just one big block of text) but for the channel page in general, this is a problem not only for the current beta users, but also appears to be a problem on the old style page as well.

    A feature I'd like to personally see is sorting options for friends/subscribers, if nothing else what Chris suggested with the randomization would be nicer than having the same 8-12 people show up every time someone visits the page. It would be even nicer if non-partners could have the option to feature subscribers by simply sorting their favorites to the top of the list, similar to MySpace's "top 8"

    ReplyDelete
  7. Thanks for the update Brian. I have a suggestion regarding better integration of the commenting.
    Put a comments field between Info and Favorite.
    From here it should be able to read others comments and also post a comment. This will make it much more interactive.

  8. it would be nice if te new channel design is finished then youtube users can decide for themselfs which one they want and if they want the old one back they can change it
    hope this helps you guys!

    ReplyDelete
  9. How about getting the videos to open in the standard separate-page form like in the old layout? It gets frustrating having to double click my own videos and other people's videos just to comment on it.

  12. So far, I'm really liking the new layout.
    However, there is a problem I'm having, whether this problem is just because of something I'm doing wrong, or if it is a bug, or something that has not been made yet, I'm not sure.
    When I try to upload a picture for the backround on my YouTube page, only the top of the picture and the bottom can be seen. The rest is hidden behind 'wrapper color'. Any thoughts there?
    Also, I had a suggestion. It would be really cool to be able to make custom colors for all the different places where colors are chosen.
    Great work so far, can't wait to see the final product!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Some channels have there featured video auto-play, but I don't see that option. Also, are there more modules coming? Because I see some people with lists of best channels and stuff like banners with links to their websites.

    BTW, I like what you guys have done with the place!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hold up now! If the transparency is so hard to pull off, how come we had it last time? Last time, in fact, transparency was so good, some people liked to annoy users by making windows TOO transparent!

    Seriously, right now, the only complaint I have, is the fact we can't see the bckgrounds as well.

  15. like DJ Aikou said, I am a partner and I should have the option for my featured video to auto-play, but I just can't find it. I am I missing it somewhere or is it just not available on the beta version yet?

    thanks,

  16. I am unable to add a playlist that I created into the "Playlists" tab of the channel. I went to the edit link next to the player/grid view, checked the playlist then hit "Save Changes" but nothing happens after that. Can you please look into this?

    ReplyDelete
  17. japanlover87 - old bulletins aren't coming back. Big nightmare to support. Sorry!

    emoes - are you looking at our internal designs? :)

    Katie - thanks for the feedback but not sure I follow - did you set it to "repeat background"? Otherwise if your background is too small you won't be able to see too much of it (it'll be hidden behind the player).

    Lite - Transparency messed with the player before in some cases & browsers. We'll see what we can do.

    Krishna - Can you check to see if autoplay is turned off under your branding options?

    ReplyDelete
  18. My featured video still won't show up. Could you guys please fix that?

  19. Would it at all be possible to increase the maximum size of the background image? I just don't think 256K is really big enough...

    ReplyDelete
  20. i second that, at 256k, my background looks awfull (http://youtube.com/muzik4machines )

    about transparency, if it messes up with some, why dont you just get rid of the background in the boxes, just let he boxes right on the background with maybe a 2px frame around it, but not a plain color(like transparent would be an option instead of 0x00ff00 for example in the customize)

    also, i really think the basic chanel info (name, subs, views) should be at the to right beside (on the left of) the featured video, so many people don't even scroll down on the pages they won't have any info(or let us put a box full width on top of the player with like slogan/short description

    also, total number of video from channel watced(as in the account page) should really be available on the channel page)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hey Brian,

    •Can you make a separate color option for the featured video module?
    •Can you make an option for the background image to "fit to screen" instead of repeating itself?
    •Can you bring back Groups and the Stream Module?

    Otherwise, besides for some bugs, it's all working out great for me. Thanks!

  22. Great work! I noticed some of those updates today, and they're awesome!

    I don't know if my problem is related to my channel layout or not, but for some reason my messages keep showing up as new even when I've read them repeatedly. It's just sort of like I have an ever-present red "new messages" icon on my homepage.

    Anyway, what you guys have done is really cool ...everyone who I've shown my channel to loves the 2.0 design! :)

  23. thank you for the link URL thing I needed that... also I know I sould stupid but can there be ANYWAY WHATSOEVER to get the channel description closer to the top of the browser PLEASE!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have to ask somthing else PLEASE MAKE THE VIDEO PAGE THE COLORS OF YOUR CHANNEL THAT WOULD BE SO COOL!

    ReplyDelete
  25. i love it, but my playlists won't display all of them, even when i edit it to display all of them, it won't save changes. so i can only ever see 4 of my playlists.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like it pretty much. I hope you get the URLs autolink fixed! Other than that, it is pretty sweet. I wish the old bulletins come back, they are SO useful! I am missing a lot of news with my subscriptions.

  28. when you remove the video module and add it back, it places it at the very bottom, right column and there is no arrows on it to move it, so you need to delete all modules and restart fresh, kind of weird behavior

    if you remove alll, the channel info is still there, but the video get shrinked to a right column size, lacking the thumbnails, but this time the video has a up arrow on it, which does nothing, it also messes the text (favorite, share, etc) underneath the video

    i really messed up my page now, i can't get the video at the top alone in ANY way lol, but upon refresh, the video is atop again, really weird behavior

    edit from above

    the chanel title field is way too short, same for the tags field
    and again, the white bar at the top is TOO HUGE, it should be like a tab, not a whole big thing(and an option to hide the edit buttons on your page too, takes a lot or of real estate(and most of the time if i show my page to someone, i'll be logged in)

    also a way to resize various boxes would help so you can have a clean bottom of page(the "wrapper" color is just plain ugly, i tought it was just borders, but its like a big rectangle that continues below the boxes if a column is longer than the other one)

    ReplyDelete
  29. and the background of the added to favorites and share is white by default, which looks pretty ugly with green text on black background (the text stays green, unreadable)

    and why the <3 (heart) besides the word info(as its already besides favorite) maybe another icon would do better, like i dont know a pencil/lightbulb (tho its used to turn the lights off on video pages)

    the video page themed to the channel colors would be pretty awesome too

    really, the 256 k background is unusable, i had to revert to a plain background ust in order to have a black black, not a gray jpg-ed black with blurry image dueto file size, 512 it was 512 it should stay, please

  30. I wanted to change my profile picture but when the window pops up when you want to change your profile picture, I browse for what picture I want and then I click on it and then in the preview it still shows the old picture, and when I press save, the profile picture stays the same! I have waited over 1 full day and it still hasn't updated. I have tried clearing my cache and cookies, and history. IT IS ANNOYING! I have always had trouble with the profile picture uploader. PLEASE FIX IT!

    ReplyDelete
  31. And when you select to upload a file for your profile image it still keeps this checked: Always use my latest uploaded video still.

    ReplyDelete
  32. One big problem that I see on the 365Project channel: the playlist section is broken. Old playlists that have been deleted are still there but when you click them, they show empty and won't delete.

    Also, new playlists that are made won't show up. Very frustrating. Much appreciated if you can look into it! :)

  33. can you put in a "Group" link in there...please!?

    although i can tell there are a lot of updates that you are working on it would be nice to see the groups back on, maybe it could even be a moveable box like the friends box? just a thought :D

  37. Sounds great guys if ad support and the ability to add comments and rate videos on the channel page is added I will definitly change my channel over. Keep up the good work!!!

  38. and also, why the fixed 960px width?
    most people are on widescreen, it looks strange on a 1920*1080 monitor

  39. On the "Which content would you like to display?" editing section, I would like it to show the full list of my uploads like when you press "see all", but it won't let me change it. The save changes button presses when I click it but it obviously isn't registering the change.

  40. Hi, my profile is still glitched.
    I am happy to see that you are fixing them, but I've had one person wanting to unsubscribe from me because they could not see my videos. I've sent him a PM but you must understand it's a little "inconvenient" if people can't see your videos at all. Please fix mine soon.

  44. I've noticed other Channels able to do the following, but I don't know how to do it, so ...

    1) How do I get the Uploads to default to "See All"?

    2) How do I get the profiled video to start right away when a viewer navigates to the Channel page?

    3) How can I get an image in the lower left corner of the Channel page (people seem to be able to insert an image here that can link viewers to another site)?

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  45. it was just brought to my attention that you can't see the videos at all when viewing from a iphone, where on the old one it did work(i'm assuming it used to be thumbs you could click to open the vid in the youtube app) now the video area is just empty.
    i never noticed cause i mostly use it from my computer, but it is a valid problem for some.
    keep up the good work guys.

    ReplyDelete
  46. some your "OUR FAVORITE NEW CHANNEL DESIGNS" aren't using the Beta Channels anymore. You may want to update as it makes it seem as if even the best designers aren't happy with the new direction.

    I'm not 100% with the new layout, but definitely loving the new features.

    ReplyDelete
  47. excelent, but I think theres a bug when I try to edit my channel, I can´t make that a new playlist show on my channel, and when I try to delete something like the Subscribers tab, I can´t put that again. So, I can quit but not create new things, I think its a bug or something, because that problem was today, just 1 day from the new update, maybe, "are you fixing it?" Sorry for my bad mispelling, I am not English.

    ReplyDelete
  48. @.:Muzik 4 Machines:.
    The screen set to 960px is fine. This is due to the fact that the majority of users have a screen resolution of 1280 X 800 or even 1024 x 768 (information going by Google Analytics). The web isn't quite ready for the big pixel resolutions, such as a 1920 x 1080 screen, which is BlueRay Definition.

    ReplyDelete
  49. at least offer an option to change it, 960 is really tiny even on my lousy 1440x900 screen (which is like the default laptop resolution)
    at just 1280 they would be able to fit the channel description top left just besides the video instead of below it (which I hate cause now nobody scrolls down to read the important stuff, they just stay at the top where the clip is and never get to read the info/see the links to my real pages

  51. Hi! I'd like to report that I'm unable to make my playlists feature on my channel. When I go to 'edit' button on the bar where the name of the profile stands, and choose which playlists to show, nothing happens.

    Also, when I try to enter channel tags, I only get that working circle going on indefinetely.

    ReplyDelete
  52. When you are watching a video on the new beta channel where it says info it shows a heart and it shows a heart next to favorite the video. I think the info and the favorite shouldn't have the same icon. Please change the info icon to like a icon of an "I" THANK YOU!

    ReplyDelete
  53. When you look at a widescreen video the icon in the list is messed up because the icon is widescreen so why not make the icon bigger because the bottom is cut off

  54. THE THING UNDERNEATH THE PROFILE PICTURE THAT SAYS COMEDIAN OR DIRECTOR OR MUSICIAN SHOULD BE PUT ON THE BETA CHANNELS JUST LIKE THE OLD CHANNELS!!!!!

  60. Hi,
    I just have few problems with the new channel design...

    1) Transparency option- If you could put this on the old channel, this should be a standard option! I don't see why this wasn't an option on the release of the beta channels...

    2) Videos- The scrolling bar is a cool concept, yet it makes it harder to access videos especially for users with LOTS of videos e.g. machinima which has 3,268 videos! Can you imagine trying to find videos with the scroll bar on that channel?
    -a solution would be to bring back the 'search' option to find videos within the channel... Still, I prefer the "old" layout for videos. It was simple, quick, and easy.

    3) When editing, I would love to have COMPLETE flexibility by being able to move modules between the two "boxes"

    4) Vlog- Has this option disappeared?


    Don't get me wrong, I like the new channel- the pros outnumber the cons.

  61. Hi again,
    Since this is a blog to communicate with beta users, I’m just gonna put out some ideas/options for future YouTube channel designs…

    I use a website called www.ning.com. On Ning, you can create your own blog/website for free. They have some cool options that YouTube channels don’t have, that I think YouTube users should have.

    1) Audio- Having 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.

    2) YouTube Apps- Being able to put applications on your channel such as mini-games, etc. This would be kinda like the Google toolbar applications.

    3) Background customization- A tool that would allow you to customize your background on YouTube sort of like the program paint.

    Again, these are just some ideas that probably won’t happen, but I thought it would be cool if YouTube would take some of these into consideration for future channels.

    Although, I do think there should be a new option that YouTube brings out in the nearby future like they did with the vlog.

  62. ONCE AGAIN:

    I would still like to see there be an OPTION to make the thumbnails in the featured videos list smaller, as in the original SMALL size. I would also still like to see a separate module for favorites. It's great to have the playlists in the featured box, but I would like to place my favorites list elsewhere. Thank you!

    Cheers!

  66. I too would very much like to have a "sort" option for subscribers/subscriptions. I use the subscription box on my channel to go to my most oft-used channels, and it would be awesome to be able to sort them so the one I go to most is at the top.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Change the comments to the way you had them at the start of the new channel lay out! I like it when you had the scroll bar down the side of the comments! That meant that it made it more compact instead of the changing length if some one posted a long comment!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Turn the scroll bar back! At least at the latest activity section!!!!
    And renaming some of sections would be col option too.

  70. These beta channels are way great but greater if you would make animation available for the backgrounf :)and another module like if you wanttto put some picture on your channel and some other as the background,just paste the image url and the picture will appear or no need that..........It will be awesome if you put some cooler module,Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Wow, thanks for those big updates!
    Here is my little feedback :)
    Using the player now without that 'page switching' is so great!
    I like your work very much but i had to come back to my old channel. Cause rating and commenting videos when looking at them is a very very useful feature. So i felt a little bit frustrated with the new beta. But i know you guys that soon or later, you will find a solution. And when that will happen, i will switch definitly to the new beta!!!
    Great work! Keep at it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. the feedback
    Let us choose subscribe button background color and subscribe button text it would be soooo cool if you could do that

    let us change avatar like in youtube channels 1.0 its very anoying that i dont get to change my avatar while in youtube channels 2.0 beta

  73. You can now feature a video by URL but you can't remove IT, It just keep showing, I don't want a feature video anymore, but I just can't remove it or save my options.

    What about animated avatars?

    Thank you.

  79. Hello, it would be nice if you could choose if the featured video autoplayed or not. Something like this:


    Autoplay featured video................()
    Do not autoplay featured video.........(x)

    Never autoplay anyone's featured video.(x)


    It would be nice.

  82. I agree with what "cobaye" said. In my opinion, having a huge chunk of the wrapper showing at the bottom makes a person's channel look very unattractive.

    I'd also like to have the option for the background image to be "fixed" (like it is on myspace for example).

    P.S. I've been having the same problem as "aznwizkid1337" for about a month now. So if you could fix my channel, I'd really appreciate it.

    I would appreciate if it were fixed, I spent some time making my background and now it doesn't match up with the modules displayed.

  86. Hello, I have a problem. When I select which playlists I'd like to display ("Which of your playlists would you like to display?") no matter what I change, when hitting the "save" button, nothing happens. This problem actually applies for that whole section of editing. I can't save anything there.

    My channel is:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/retroship

    I actually tried with my other accounts too, it doesn't work either.

    Thanks for any support.

  89. In the last few days (beginning of June 09) it has become impossible to edit the playlist view.

    We have created two new playlists and uploaded several clips to these.
    The clips appear in the recent activity box and play correctly. The playlists are set correctly, yet when we check the box to make them visible and save changes nothing happen and the playlists aren't added to the playlist box.
    The grid list doesn't work either.
    We have tried to delete and recreate them but it didn't work. We tried to edit on different computers and different browsers but it hasn't made a difference.

    Is this a known bug being fixed?

    our channel is http://www.youtube.com/user/Radio3Video

    Thanks for any help

  90. Following on previous message, none of the options in the edit box including:
    - Which content would you like to display?
    - Featured content set
    - Which of your playlists would you like to display?
    seem to be active, it appears as if one can make changes, but the 'save changes' has no effect.

    ReplyDelete
  91. We have just discovered another new bug.
    In one of our playlists we have 17 movies, when that playlist is selected and displayed in the side column view the first 12 movie thumbnails and info are displayed, the space for the last five is empty and the spinning progress icon stays there permanently, the five remaining videos never appear.
    To be noted that if I go to 'my videos' I can see, edit and play these clips, which indicated there is nothing wrong with the actual video or the information attached to it.

  92. Unfortunately, still getting the two bugs I mentioned before the update:

    1) not able to go back to featuring the 'last video'. when i try to remove a video url i'm currently featuring and i click save, the process never completes. Nothing is saved or changed.

    2) the endless loading circles still displays after the first dozen or so thumbnails in the right column.

  93. The problems mentioned by 'patrickometry'seem to be in the same 'family' as those pointed out in the three posts above by Roberto/Radio 3 video.
    Is there anyone who knows if these issues are in the list of forthcomiong fixes?
    The problem only started a few days ago, previously we were able to manage the playlists and videos in them with no problems.

  104. wow, great jobs guys, but the new way of selecting the featured video is weird, why not just use a field to any video AND a check box to override it(gray it out likely) with the latest upload?

    still 256k background tho :(

    nice I for the info, but the background of the share is still white, either put it the wrapper color or force black text over it all the time because as it is, on my chanel with 0x00dd00 text it's invisible

    the links in the description still don't autolink (and neither the cahnnel description), which is annoying as i link to the mp3 of every video in the description as i don't (yet) have a real store on itunes to have the nice itunes link

    ReplyDelete
  105. also, the formating on the description is horrible, especially when there NNED to be line breaks and there are none, also that is pretty critical to have a way to link just to the uploaded videos like we could before, cause now those links just redirect to the main channel page with an error message and there is no way to just send a list of videos without having the whole page+ autoplay video load and start

    ReplyDelete
  106. Just saw new updates tonight.
    I like everything except for the following.

    1.) I don't like the blue border that surrounds my list of videos. Get rid of that. It is unnecessary.

    2.) I don't like the new buttons that is used to move the modules. I prefer the circle shaped buttons.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Please make the profile picture at the top of the channel larger. For people who have text as part of the profile picture, you can't read it. Make it about the same size as the profile picture that appears in the user's profile information box.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Here are a few suggestions.

    1.) Add the HQ and HD buttons to the featured video player.

    2.) Please add the ability to delete user created themes and colors.

    3.) Skins: in addition to solid colors, I would like the ability to choose skins/themes to my channel. This would make a channel look more attractive.

    4.) Some people want their profile information at the top of the page. This would not look right if a verticle profile box is placed at the top. I suggest a horizontal profile information box at the top of the page. This can be placed above the featured video but under the module that shows the username/suscribe button.

    5.) Do not bring back the director, music, etc. accounts label. This is redundant. I changed my account from regular to director a long time ago but there is really no difference and benefit to having a director's account.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I just saw tonight's updates.
    I would like to say that the way users select the featured videos is now perfect or almost perfect. It is exactly the way I imagined it. It has a pulldown box to select the user's own videos but also that "other" as an option. When this is selected, the user can enter a video URL.
    The only thing I would recommend would be to have the ability to not feature a video.

    Also, I would like to be able to make someone's video a featured video from the watch page. For example, if I am watching a video, if I am signed in, I would like to be able to click a button that says "make featured" or something similar to this.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Okay here is all I got now that so much has been improved, by the way good job with user thumbnails. But I think the user should be able to decide the size of some of the thumbnails on our channels. In a way like our ability to change our video box to grid view and compact view. We should have the choice to make 3 or 4 large thumbnails showing in the "friends" or "subscribers" boxes or 16 tiny thumbnails. Thank you.

  112. Ok, this may sound useless, but remember how we could decide whether to have a featured video or not, well people should be able to decide to show grid view instead of player view.

  117. *****BUG REPORT*****
    There is a bug in the channel description in Internet explorer. If you compare the channel description viewed in Internet Explorer and Google Chrome it looks weird in Internet Explorer. First of all, the part in the channel description where it says website, it is all scooted over to the right side and bunched up on 2 lines, where as in Google Chrome it is on 1 line.
    And in the about me section as well as the influences, movies and everything else below about me, the first line is to the right of where it says about me(and names for other sections) and the rest is underneath. But in Google Chrome it is all underneath.
    I THINK THIS NEEDS TO GET FIXED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE IT LOOKS REALLY BAD IT INTERNET EXPLORER!!!!

  121. After the problems pointed out yesterday about the edit features not working, not updating (which content would you like to display, featured content set and which of your playlists would you like to display?)and only the first 12 video in a playlist displaying (the others being replaced by the spinning lodain icon) today the links to 'playlists' and 'uploads' don't work. Only the preferred playlist is displayed and there is no way to get to the others.
    Is this again something known and being looked at?

  122. Great, everything seems back to normal, palylists are updating and displaying and the tweaks to the look improve readability.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I'm now able to choose 'latest video' from a featured playlist. Thanks!

    However..

    1) I now notice that the way playlists designate which is latest changes according to the setting. My channel will now display the last video listed in my playlist as the last. That makes sense but that's not how playlists have normally work and that's not how a playlists embed code, as provided by google, displays them. When I embed my playlist it begins at the beginning of the playlist (which is in fact the oldest video). So, in order to get around that, I would move videos at the end of my playlist to the beginning each time I added one. Now, I'm not sure what to do.

    My playlist embed players start at the first video while youtube channels start at the last video. That makes it difficult to consistently showcase videos from newest to oldest, which is my preference.

    Can YouTube Channels have an option to feature the first video OR the last video in a playlist?

    Thanks much,
    Patrick

  144. Hullo again,


    [1] The 'Subscriptions' and 'Subscribers' windows have a reduced icon size from before. That's alright I guess (there doesn't seem to be an option to change the size of these icons yet...). But, now that I try to put them in rows of 1, 2 or 3, there are always 2 left dangling over. (This is if they are aligned to the right side; doesn't seem to be a problem if they are aligned to the left)

    For example, one row should only display 8 users, but currently it'll chop off two users and add them to a new row, making it essentially 1 row of 6 and another row underneath of 2. This seems to happen for both the '2' & '3' row options. Likely a bug.


    [2] Unrelated, but the subscriber glitch bug still exists. I've got several subscribers that appear twice in my 'subscribers' list, artificially bumping the number higher than what it truly is.


    [3] I think that there should be the option, for partners, to display a "Partner" button, or something to that effect. It's like a status symbol that they should be worthy of, IMO.


    The top bar is looking pretty sweet; I see that you've even put in a Search option: great stuff! Hats off to you! I'm not completely sure I follow the logic of transparency being difficult, however. Aaaaaanyway, once a few of these niggly bugs are out, this thing is definitely good to go! Thanks for your hard work, guys!

  147. I manage youtube.com/umn and have two major issue with the new channel design:

    1. the way in which content is displayed below the fold of the page is really unattractive. It doesn't fill properly so it is all left aligned, but it is as if there is something missing on the right half. The subscribers are all the way on the bottom, and I don't think it outlines the available playlists very well.

    2. Where is my background? It doesn't load our patterned background and reverts to a standard solid color.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I'm really loving all the updates, and it's getting to the point where I can't find anything wrong anymore.

    Only thing that I've seen go wrong was one time, I clicked to watch a favorite video, it showed up, but with the title and info of my featured video. May have just been a random fluke, as it hasn't done it again.

    One suggestion though, if it's possible. I'd like to see the friends and subscribers be randomized, rather than seeing the same people every time. Just a thought.

    Thanks again for all the updates, I love the new channels. And also thanks again for putting my channel in the "Favorite Designs" list. =D

  165. I've never used the transparency feature on the old channel because it would also make everything, such as video thumbnails, transparent. Therefore it would be difficult to see what's on the page.
    I know you said the transparency feature is tricky to do but when working on the transparency feature for this new channel, please make it so that everything is tranparent except for the video thumbails, profile picture, text, etc.

    ----

    Also, I'd like to see more frequent updates on this blog. Even when you make minor changes such as adding a search option, changing the move module buttions from circle to square, etc. Don't wait several week to post a new blog. I think you should make a blog once a week.

    ReplyDelete
  166. BTW, i can't seem to upload any video since the last maintenance, always give me the monkey error(with the 3 pages of random garbage) and the video stays in processing for (14 hours) now, is this due to the beta in some way?

    ReplyDelete
  167. I love the changes you have made except one. I was one of those who actually liked the fact that the comments was in a scrollbar and not really that happy that it was changed back to how it was before.

    ON ANOTHER NOTE. Something that I've been talking about before. On my channel when I click "Playlists" I only see the three newest but not any more than that. Why can't people see all the playlists that the user has? Also, the "play all" option on the playlists isn't there. When a person ask's me where to go to see my other playlists I usually don't want them to tell them do this and do that and then this and that. It would be so much better if when the clicked "Playlists" on my channel they saw all the playlists that I have and also a "play all" option.

    Another thing that bugs the crap out of me is the very very very tiny box that we get to write in when we want to write in the information box. I like to see more than two rows at a time.

  177. Hey.

    First, thanks and congratulations on providing a new YouTube experience. As far, I like the direction where new Channels are going.

    Now, my issues:

    What happened to vlog? Will it come back as an option? Since it should (please), it'd have to be selectable as featured video.

    I love the way Favorites are displayed now (at a separate section, all of them at once), and I haven't suffered the "infinite circle" problem. Oddly enough, my Favorites often play automatically, in order. Nice, but I didn't choose that - it'd be great to have that option and, also, to play them randomly (which, actually, should be optional to all kind of sets: playlists, Favorites, Uploads -change the name, please-, etc.

    Since there's no vlog, I've tried to select a featured video other than the latest I've favorited, specifically, the latest from the playlist I was using as Vlog (Arte), but it doesn't update after I save those changes.

    On the same topic, the playlists I choose to (dis)play on its own section shouldn't be related to what video I feature.

    Finally, what are the requisites for Beta Channels? Videos aren't being played correctly (they don't play as smoothly as before, though they sound just fine, maybe better than ever); I guess it's because this computer isn't up to the task (which is not your fault), but it was up to old version.

    And add me as an user waiting for transparency.

  178. Hi,

    Having a ability to list videos on multiple page. Because right now, when somebody have about 200 videos, about 95% of its videos will be ignored by the person who watch his channel. So being able to put it on multiple page, it would make more equaly emphasis of the 200 videos.

    Thanks,
    Napostriouf

  180. Hello Team Members of the youtube beta team,

    My name is Devon and I run the youtube channel MacManiaTutorials. I tried to switch over the the youtube beta channel on April 16 in apple's Safari, but it wouldn't let me. I kept clicking it but it wouldn't work. Then, a few days later after clicking it countless times, I finally got into the channel beta. I played around with it but it wasn't right for me. I tried switching back to the original layout, but it kept reloading the page and directing me to click lets go. About 1-2 weeks ago after trying to switch back for a month, it finally let me switch back. I had my original channel, and i didn't like the channel design, so I went to go update the color scheme. Now whenever I try to edit my channel in anyway, Youtube always gives me the 500 internal server error. I can't edit my channel design, channel info, or upload a background. If you have the time, can you reset my channel to function like normal? I would really appreciate it.

    Here is a detailed screen capture video that shows you what my problem is.

  185. I need some HELP!

    I have my comment settings so that everyone can only comment with approval and the thing is that I have already two comments that ain't showing up! I know that because the counter on my channel says "Channel Comments (2)" and still there isn't any comments to approve!

    That REALLY bugs me because it would be nice to know who's saying and what! Why there is this approval option if it's not working properly? AND could somebody fix my comments so that I can finally see them, please?

  187. Hi,
    there is an issue with the channels' display on firefox: the friends' box, for example, is displaying four rows when set to display three. one icon from each row is pushed to a fourth row (which just includes the three extra icons"). The channels look asymmetrical and ugly because of this. Please fix this issue!!

  189. I want to add transparency, but there´s no option to do so. :( and I wanna drag and drop just like iGoogle! plz make it more like iGoogle

    ReplyDelete
  190. I do have the same problem as "imthatone" described; the icons of friends and subscribers are pushed into the third row when I want to have displayed only two rows.
    And please make the autoplay of favorited videos stop. I would however welcome the autoplay function without being a partner ;)

    Otherwise I as others would be very glad about the Transparency option.
    Keep up your good work!

  191. I agree with Pascal,
    Please add an option for transparency. You can hardly see the background and there is this huge blank spot at the bottom right that can be either cut off or made transparent.

  193. This problem DOES NOT exist on Google Chrome or Safari, ONLY ON Explorer and on Fire Fox.

    The list of friends and subscribers (7 icons accross), instead of appearing on one line, it appears on 2. There is 6 friend or subscriber icons on one line and then 1 right below.

  195. Without the transparency option, what use is the background image?.
    Really like how the old page layout looks, as far making the page look uniquely your own.

    There are many You Tube sites that focus on Playlists and favorites.
    This new Beta removes this focus for a single featured video.

    I think the One huge square table with little separation, limited & tiny thumbs looks boring and very old school.

    The new layout reminds me of Catholic school where everyone has to look the same :( sorry

  196. With the new channels, the "organize videos" feature doesn't work. You can change those 9 videos or favorites you want to show but when you click on "Update channel" it is as before. I hope you understand what I say...

  197. Thank you for making avaliable my two of two ideas (search bar, and featuring video via url). My next suggestion is to allow to order videos (uploads) by no. of views, and no. of coments and most recent
    thank you

  198. I find this new type of channel really cool, but there is (unfortunately) a miss.. the trasparency!! Is the thing that make my channel cool!! So please, try to add this feature because I really think that the channel 2.0 is cool!

    ReplyDelete
  199. I would like to be able to order how my lists appear on the page-- such as moving my favorites below my playlists, etc. Being able to have a "top 9" videos like before would be nice too.

    I also would like friends and subscribers to be randomized each time the channel page loads, or at least an option to pick "top friends" or "top subscribers" that can show on the channel page.

    Overall, I like the beta design! It has a lot of potential! :-)
