Sorting, ads, and more

It's about time for another beta update. As emoes guessed in the comments of our last post, we're getting closer and closer to the full launch for all users - though we were surprised to learn that hundreds of thousands of users are already using the new version of channels. Once again, your feedback and bug reports so far have been amazing - you've helped make the new version of channels better, faster, stronger over the course of the beta.

So what's new this week?
  • Ads - partners, you've been asking for it: You can now have the full range of ads on your channel
  • Sort controls - sort by most viewed, date added, or highest rated (yes, this was buggy for a few days, but should be fine now)
  • Ratings stars can now be clicked
  • Counts for the number of videos in each section (when in "All" view)
  • When playing a video, the video title now links to the non-channel video watch page as well
  • And, of course, bug fixes - including one where thumbnails were "pushed down" and had some black borders, rating stars rounding down, and more
And what's still coming?
  • Ability to reorder your uploads, or your lists of playlists
  • Making URLs autolink (in both the video description, plus the channel profile area)
  • Showing the upload date in the video description
  • More bugfixes (including fixing the scrollbar when ads appear, turning the search box background white within uploads, and making sure "autoplay the next video" only applies when playing a playlist)
  • And more...
Keep the feedback & bug reports coming...

  1. I'm glad to see the bug fix on the video thumbnails. That was kind of annoying.

    Also glad to see the ratings enabled.

    I'd still like to see an option to randomize the list of friends and subscribers, if that's possible.

    As always, I really like these new channels. Thanks for all the improvements!

    And also, as I must always say, thanks so much for featuring my channel in the "Favorite Channel" list.

  2. Oh. Totally forgot.

    I see you also fixed the comment reply white bar thing.

    =D !

  3. PLEASE remove the UNSUBSCRIBE button from right above the video in the middle! It's just SCREAMING UNSUBSCRIBE!

    Subscribe is good there, then you can make the button go away as you can unsubscribe down below in the channel info area.

  4. Freakin fantastic; the ratings from the channel was the biggest glitch to me. This is coming along nicely!!!

    This is on Firefox 3, and it is still really annoying to see. Please fix this.

  6. AntneyW - Thanks! Re: randomizing friends and subscribers, some folks are proud of always being some of the first listed, but I agree, it'd still be good to do. Better yet would be letting you pick your top subscribers.

    HotForWords - We thought about that one, but ultimately decided against moving it - it seems unintuitive / deceptive to get rid of the button once you've clicked it. Maybe there are ways to diminish the font or size of the button further, though.

    Lamarr - thanks! Glad you're digging it.

    TaurusOxford - agreed, that's pretty annoying. I can even see it myself on your channel. This might already be tracked, but I'll file a bug just in case. Thanks for the report.

  7. Is it possible to replace the text "Your channel viewers will see links here..." with anything at all and increasing the font of the username itself?

    Trasparency any time soon?

    Variety of fonts to choose? or use the system fonts?

    my 2 cents

    ReplyDelete
  8. Brian - I too would love to pick top subs and friends

    Also, I know it's minor, but the option for a fixed background (cross-bowser) would be nice too. background-attachment:fixed; works in both IE and Fx

    ReplyDelete
  9. wow, thanks for featuring my channel :), i work hard to try to make it look like my own site.
    also, how can I keep the in-video ads and disable the big square ad that pushes the uploads/playlists way down? I really can't seem to find the option anywhere(maybe i'm the blind guy tho). Or has it to do with the video that is featured settings?(probably not)
    i'd really prefer a banner over my banner than this square that lowers the other videos(and more often than anything, doesn't match the colors)

    also, the 256k for the background is still buggy for partners, i really want to use a background that doesn't repeat yet covers the whole page, with frames and design around the video/central column

    also, the wrapper that overshoots at the bottom, either give us an option of no wrapper (invisible/translucent) so at least if one column is longer than the other one it will still look OK

    the autoplay next should be an option for the uploads too, i really like popping my page and having the music keep playing

    ctrl click still not working to open videos in a new tabs, really important

    the sorting option used to have the most commented too, i loved it

    there is still no means to link directly to my_videos like we used to, again, really important as i almost exclusively used this link when sharing my creations

    the iphone version/mobile version of the site still says video disbled by users on every beta users, again, pretty important to have

    thanks a lot, you guys are really listening and making this better every day

    ReplyDelete
  10. I still would like to see the vlog in its on separate section on the channel. Just like the old channels.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Please make it so we can right click on the video/ video links and open them in a new tab or window. PLEASE!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh and the labels on the channel like Guru, Comedian, Director, Reporter...etc are still missing from the beta channels!!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I got to admit, this "beta channel" looks way better than the old one. When i saw it i sayed "i got to get this new channel theme". Thanks you tube for this new update! Keep 'em coming!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Change is usually a bit of a shock to the system but overall we quite like these changes.

    The downside is, including the annoying blue "breaking news" bar (which I can't seem to turn off), the height of the top YouTube nvaigation area is now twice the height of the old one. This is taking up useful content real estate and distracts visitors from easily seeing the main page content.

    We'd also like to be able to have the Playlist and Favourites back as modules in the main body like friends, subscribers, etc.

    Cheers

    ReplyDelete
  15. I like Beta Channel!!! It is SO beautiful and modern!!!

    though I STILL can't understand why can't we put a video URL as a featured video of the channel... I had this function for a few days and then it disappeared:((

    and can you make the possibility of posting a bit LONGER titles of the channel?? Mine are always so short, it does not allow to post long title and it is a bit sad.

    keep working!

  16. Hi.
    I'm still getting the endless loading circles, as well as the playlists not showing up on the right side of the featured video.
    http://youtube.com/lewys93

    As well as on my channel, this happens with all the new style channels I go on.
    I'm running Firefox 3 on Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope

  17. when the ad appears it still pushes my list partially behind that wrapper thing. also when I go to grid all the videos vanish when I scroll down to about the halfway point this is a problem because now I can't veiw some of my favorites please hurry up and fix

    ReplyDelete
  18. Esperanza BY, You can have a video URL as a featured video. Go to edit on the video thing, and where it says featured video scroll through the list until you find other. Select other and it will ask for a Video URL. Type in or paste the URL and click save changes. And thats how you make a video URL a featured video.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm really loving the Beta...with each little tweak it's getting better.

    I hope you guys are prepared for the snowstorm of emails you'll get when the Beta is rolled out to everyone. I think there are still petitions on Facebook from the first time they changed their layout. People complain waaaay too much nowadays!

    Keep up the good work...

  20. @YouTube
    is this supposed to be a joke browsing 200+ uploads like this: screen blank - hourglass - screen redraw - scroll down - screen blank - hourglass - hourglass ?!? It takes ages to load.
    Unfortunately there seems to be no skilled QA to put an end to this usability nightmare. The old design is way faster and much more user friendly.

  21. Brian- it's really coming along. I posted some tips about customizing the banner image and adding a clickable map that I "borrowed" from the vlog brothers. -Nalts

    http://willvideoforfood.com/2009/06/23/how-to-customize-my-youtube-channel/

    ReplyDelete
  22. @nalts, where do you put the map code?

    ReplyDelete
  23. if i do a banner that is 150 px high, it squeezes it to 75 and the map code wont work(error from my branding page) so i guess its just for certain big partners, not all of us, really really sad

    ReplyDelete
  24. @nalts, after looking at several of the youtube accounts i manage, it appears that the custom banner image is only available for partners. non of my sites are partners and I do not have the brandings option menu.

    ReplyDelete
  25. only for SPECIAL (ie, rich) partners
    The ability to upload a channel banner with a height larger than 75 pixels, as well as image map options, requires a paid brand channel. There might be a few other exceptions, but I don't believe the 'normal' Partner program allows them. There is the possibility this has changed, and while I do not have access to any kind of Branding Options myself, I have asked a few other users with them, and that was the conclusion.

    thats REALLY a turn off

  26. When someone sends you a friend and you go to their channel it says + friend. It should say accept friend invite.

    ReplyDelete
  27. There is still a bug that I noticed hasn't been fixed yet. When I try to edit my influences on the beta channel and I click save changes it says "I call shenanigans9"

    ReplyDelete
  28. I encountered 2 bug now (one of them still from previous update).

    The sorted list of most viewed is still not fixed but does look a little more sorted though not fully. I have 133, 126, 148, 117, 118, 111...etc.

    The new bug I recently encountered is that my playlist creation dates are messed up now. It shows the following:

    Messed up date - Actual date
    6 minutes ago - June 08, 2009 (2+ weeks ago)
    9 hours ago - May 17, 2009 (1+ month ago)
    1 day ago - April 09, 2009 (2+ months ago)
    1 week ago - May 31, 2009 (3+ weeks ago)

    Thank you for some channel fixes, YouTube!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Awesome, I'm loving how the updates are coming along! :)

    You fixed all the bugs I was concerned about haha, so I guess I don't have anything more to say....;-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Not sure if it's a bug, but I'm having problems uploading a background image to my site. I have one there now, but am trying to place a new one on there. I get a '500 Internal' note where the upload selection area is.

    ReplyDelete
  31. my account page is:

  32. I cant access my account when its in Beta version it gives me and 500 error internal server error. Then when I reverted it I could access it again. Is there something wrong with youtube or my account?

    My account is http://www.youtube.com/DayZ2468

    ReplyDelete
  33. I agree with HotForWords.


    The Beta channels are getting better and better!! One feature I really want is an option to make the video module color different from the wrapper color.

    Also, WHAT ABOUT GROUPS??????????????

    I found one bug with the ads. It distorted the video sidebar.

    Finally, do you think you could allow html in the channel description? This was once available, but discontinued last year. Many users would love it back!

  34. Hi Brian,

    Love to hear your feedback on this background... hope it works on all monitors!

  35. A few random responses in no particular order...

    muzik4machines - 1) No way to disable the big ad on the side (without disabling all your ads on your channel). 2) No room for most commented - we decided to go with highest rated instead. 3) Mobile version isn't working, yeah - we're working on fixing that. 4) You can link directly to specific videos on your channel - just copy & paste the URL you see when playing a particular video on your channel.

    Mattjsrules - 1) Sorry, no more vlog. :) 2) That's odd (the shenanigans text). We'll look into it. 3) Thanks for all the other suggestions!

    paintinganddrawing - Yes, we're expecting some folks to be upset when we roll this out for everyone. It's the nature of the game - can't please 'em all. :) By the way, just noticed that your channel seems to be giving a 500 error - we're on it.

    scoopex - if you're trying to browse through 200+ vids, try clicking on the "grid" view icon in the upper-right - should be a better experience. We're always trying to speed up loadtimes overall, though.

    Nalts - sweet channel! It looks great, especially the interactive banner. And good tips on your blog, too. I shared with the team.

    Charlie - We actually just changed it to show the "last updated" date on the playlist instead of the creation date. Last updated makes more sense - otherwise the list of playlists will look old and stale fast. Users can tell when you've made recent changes.

    CG - awesome - we can launch now. ;)

    Aaron - can you try again? Do you still get it?

    DaisyizClutch - we'll look into it - thanks for the report.

    joshinvents - Thanks! Yeah, the ads distort the scrollbar on the side. We're working on that one. Not showing groups right now, but we should again at some point. Re: HTML, sorry, no (too much abuse) but we'll autolink URLs again soon.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Jon - nice job! Looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  37. hey brian, thanks for the responses,
    1) ok, i guess i'd live with it :)
    2)cool for the most viewed, it now works properly in the my_video page (it used to not work very well)
    3) ok, cool to know it'll work back :)
    4) linking to single video is fine, but compiling an html page with every video link, with thumbnail and all is pretty bad by hand, will we be able to use the mobile video list for that purpose(or a way to properly embed the whole channel without the huge white top bar to get it more seamless, cause now http://muzik4machines.com/Videos/index.html looks weird (i have to use the no style playlist, and there no ad on there, and embeding the whole channel in the iframe gives a weird look due to the white top bar)

    about the image maps, will it be available to normal partners one day, or just the paying ones?

    ReplyDelete

    agree with having html in decription ! that could be great!!

    ...and thanks for looking into the 500 error. It's only just started doing it and the channel works fine if I switch back to the old view.

  48. hy, everything worked well (i'd like to tell you only that the new layout's lines - i.e. white on blue- maybe are too big, they could be thinner...) but some minutes ago my cannel home page said: " 500 Internal Server Error

    Spiacenti, si è verificato un errore.
    Abbiamo già provveduto a inviare in ricognizione una squadra di scimmie altamente addestrate per risolvere il problema.
    Also, please include the following information in your error report:"

  52. Brian I could really use some help. I already asked for help on the last post but I never got a response. I had been using the new Beta version for a while. I had to revert back to the older version in order to change my featured video since I couldn't do that in Beta. Then I reverted back to beta, but the entire video box disappeared. It's been gone for almost two weeks now and I'm really frustrated with this. I get at least 1000 people viewing my channel every day so I reverted back to the older version so that they can still watch my videos. I would really like to go back to the beta version but until the video box reappears I really can't do this. Can you please help. Thanks!

  53. Stupid Cupid has a good idea.

    For accounts in existance before the final launch, let them keep the option to keep their old channels. That way, those who have worked hard on layouts won't get upset.

    Meanwhile, all accounts created after the final launch will have the new layout.

    That way, the people who don't want the new channel can keep their current one.

    ReplyDelete
  54. @stupid cupid, been there done that, i play guitar, bass, drums and keyboards, had multiple bands over the past 20 years(check my 6 other channels)

    i was a producer/arranger for many years, a DAW expert operator and product specialist, as well as a trained professional musician, Muzik 4 Machines is my solo project where sound is more important than "music" (as machines don't seem to care about melodies, just sounds lol).

    it's not like i'm a 15 years old who just warezed fruity loops and don't know shit about what i'm doing, but thanks for taking the time for giving a look :)

  55. So, just to be clear: You can still use the old channel layout when the new layout goes live?

  56. It's too hard to find the embed code (hidden "behind" the video now. Would be better to include the embed code on the "Share" tab at least. Thanks

  57. BNback - that's weird. We'll take a look into it and see what we can do to fix your channel.

    AntneyW - that's a good idea in theory but not really possible in practice, unfortunately - we can't maintain two separate versions of channels (and build new features, and fix bugs for, etc) indefinitely. So we're focused new channels and making sure that new channels are as good as old channels, and then some!

    kap - the old channel layout will stick around for a little while - but once we leave beta, it'll be only the new channels.

    Religinsanity - good idea.

  58. I have a question for you. Why do we have any choice in picking on which channel page users use on YouTube? Me personaly I would like to have a choice between to keep the one I have or switch to the new one because I like the design of the old one that is why I am not changing it. Will this be applied in the version when it will be release?

  59. I wonder why YT beta have reverted back to (days, months, years) ago instead of the actual date. That was pretty nice. I hope you are planning to fix it

  61. I have no idea what happened actually but suddenly I can't click on my videos anymore to see them. The "hand" icon comes up to show that it is a clickable link but when I click it nothing happens o.o

    EDIT: Now that I went browsing youtube I can't seem to click on any links at all in the scrollbox where all the videos are on the new beta channel!

    Also, can you please make the place where you write about yourself a bit bigger. I hate it that when you are going to write something there it turns into a three line scrolling box. I can hardly see o.o I would like it bigger.

    Other than that I'm really happy with how everything is turning out and I'm really glad that I can make the channel really look like my own ^^

  62. Kyuusou - there's actually a bug right now that's broken new channels (we're doing a major site push at the moment). We expect it to be fixed within about a half hour. Sorry about that!

    Also, the bug is now fixed - your channels should be working again. Let us know if you see any problems.

  65. I can't change back to the old channel design. This wouldn't be a problem if the new design didn't insist on flaunting my personal info for all the world to see. I set my personal info to hidden in my account settings, but they're now up on my page.

  69. Hi Mattjsrules - we're still looking into it.

    reinii02 - when you click on "Edit" in the upper-right of your profile box, you'll see a new column appear on the left hand side with checkboxes. Just uncheck anything you don't want to show up on your channel.

    Sigmund - we're going to look at adding that, if possible. Thanks!

  70. I just saw the oh-so-negative reaction on the other blog. My feelings are mixed. Why not make as many options as to make it possible to resemble the old channel? I want my personal info up there, and I don't want so much screen real estate taken up by ONE of my vids. I'd appreciate more space for playlists, but that's just my personal wish, so I say, MORE FREEDOM. AND transparency, please!!!

    In the old channel, it was not possible to put the playlist to the bottom, or to choose more than three playlists etc. Why??? Now the layout is even more strict. Let us do what we want! That's the key! Give us more designs, more layouts, more options! Don't just make it different for difference's sake!

  74. Maybe you could perhaps make an option to have things on my channel transparent so a Background may be seen?

    Also, maybe do something about that BIG solid look going down to the bottom of the page below the comments section. That's so damn annoying. Could we also have something done about the Playlists? I liked that you could see the descriptions because I used it to list things down.

  82. How come there are two subscribe buttons on the same channel?

    How come you have to scroll down to add someone as a friend?

    How come the content sections are not easily distinguishable?

    Those of us who clamoured for new channel design didn't just want change, we wanted something better.

    I am seriously concerned that you are releasing the new channels before they are ready. I hope you are completely redesigning the backend and the way the channel design is managed.

    The current system is one of the most poorly designed frameworks I have ever been forced to use.

    If you're going to force us to change, it ought to be for better, not solely for different or worse.

    This new design seems to ignore the habits and interests of users and publishers instead of taking advantage of them.

    I commented months ago when the original design was in baby form...I am very serious when I say this is not ready for public release.

  83. Mr. Glick of youtube, i have been with this channel for a bit over a year now, and what attracted me to join was how convinient it was to send a message to all of my friends, and whatnot, but now, with all of these changes that have happened, i have lost touch with many of these friends. For reasons that i can somewhat understand, you have removed some things, and even now after a year, i still like youtube. But with this whole changing to the beta design, i find it quite sad. Only for the reasons being that people should chose to keep their not-so-classic-any more design on their page if they chose. I, myself have looked at these new channels, yet i still find for example, my channel format, most preferable. Please Mr.Glick, i can understand why you want to change, but please let people chose! As you can see, many have the same opinion as i do, we like our channels, and even though the new format might be better in anyway, we love our format, and are more content. Those who want to upgrade can upgrade (like it has been in these past months), i like it this way. I know that many comments go under this blog every second, but i do hope that you read this, because it's coming from a person who finds youtube very enjoyable, and most frankly, awesome, just the way it is. Thanks!,
    pleasse there are so many people that dont want this please keep it optional. i'm telling you your going to lose alot of viewers including me if you change.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Sorry to be the barrer of bad news but the overwhelming consensus is clear, and that is that this beta layout is not nearly as good as the classic layout. If you go to the other page where the information and video is posted about the forcing of the new layout on all users on july 15th, you will see thousands upon thousands of comments all saying they don't like the new design. Granted most of them are young kids using expletives to show their distain for the new layout design, however the point is clear amongst everyone.

    Much like when you removed the bulletins and replaced them with the useless recent activity box, about 98% of youtube USERS do not like this forced change.

    The new layout design is cluttered, not very fluid, and obviously not as user friendly. The classic design was perfect and this did not need to be changed. The ONLY good thing about the new design is that you can edit things directly on the page, the right idea would have been doing that without changing the layout. There was no reason to change the layout at all, it doesnt help , it looks jumbled and its not fluid with the page at all.

    The very least youtube can do is provide users the option to have either the classic layout or this new layout. I guarantee that nearly everyone will choose the classic layout.

  87. There is no need for 2 subscribe buttons on the page, and the add friend button should be at the top instead of scrolling down, and there needs to be more of a barrier between the video sections, essentially this new design is not fluid and its very jumbled and not user friendly at all.

    Much like when you took the bulletins away and replaced it with the useless recent activity box, all you are going to see are complaints about this new design being forced upon us.

    Give users the option of having this or the old design and you will see they will opt for the old design not this new one you are forcing upon us which is not aesthetically appeally and fails functionality wise.

  88. "hundreds of thousands"? Is this all in your head? Your getting thousands upon thousands of complaints every minute on your other blog! Are yout turning a blind eye to all that has been going on? Mr. Glick, I've only been on YouTube for a couple of years now and I've had trouble with stalkers and trolls being able to see my channel, friends and comments then harass everyone I was talking to. If you wanna make a worth while change then make private profiles..

  90. One thing I hate about this new channel design is that when you click to play a video in someone's channel, it only plays it inside the channel, instead of in a separate page. In addition to having this, could you please also keep the option to play it in a separate window, because I am a huge propopent of using the tabs in my browsers, and I like having several videos from the same person loading at the same time, especially if, for example an episode they created spans over four videos. It beats having to wait for one video to load, then playing it, and then waiting for the next video to load. It wastes time.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I'm sorry.

    I really dislike the new BETA channels.

    I have been on YouTube for three years and no offense to the people who have spent time working hard on this, but I personally think the design is terrible.

    I have given it my best shot. I have tried about ten times to design a page that I am happy with on these new templates but each time I do so I am left feeling like I have a cheap bebo knockoff full of oversized fonts, bizarre placements modules and what have you.

    As a YouTube partner I really, really, really, REALLY, hope that I am not forced to adopt a design that puts one video on the forefront and forces advertisments on to my viewers directly from my channel page, while leaving my channel information below on seemingly another place altogether - where it is ignored.

    Again, I appreciate the work that is being put into this. However, as soon as I am required to opt-in to something I don't agree with: it becomes personal.

    Count me out.

    Please give us the option to keep the old one, it's like Myspace. With the Myspace profile 2.0, they gave old users the option to keep the old design, and the new users who had just signed up didnt have that option. Please don't force us to make such an unnessecary change. I also appreciate how much work was put into this, but for me it's a lot harder to get things done on my, or other users channels.

  101. Hello, YouTube people! I was wondering, when are you going to get rid of this beta channel designs completely? It's really ruining your site! I have no idea who could come up with something so indescribably terrible; they should be fired immediately! But I know you will do the right thing and simply stick with the classic, functional, superior original channel designs! Haha ha ha! Good times!

    Best regards, Slappy.

  102. It would be a really cool thing if the new channel had an option to make a transparent blocks background, so that people could better see our background images. :)

    ReplyDelete
  103. I tried the beta format a while back, and loathed it. I would prefer YouTube just gave some of the beta features to the existing format, i.e. the ability to move and customize individual modules. I don't want to lose the vlogs on front page. I think most people prefer the less-compact format of the traditional channels.

  104. When editing profile text, I would love to not get this pop-up message

  105. Hopefully the new channel layout will come in nicely, even with the transparency option and sorting out videos in the top 9 like the old one.

    Still, I'm seeing many people wanting to have an options feature, a feature that lets you to switch to the new layout anytime you like to. Mostly everyone wants that optional feature.

    ReplyDelete
  106. It would be a good idea to offer to the youtube's users a more robust system for uploading the videos like ftp per example, because is very frustrating when sometimes the process of uploading is broken and to have to start once again right from the beginning, losing all the data or portion already uploaded. Usually the users got a fast connection for downloading but very poor for uploading. Thank you for your attention.

  110. To TheirTube™:

    Please sell YouTube™ to another company such as Microsoft Inc. Why? Because they know all about what happens when you force your users to accept an unfamiliar and inflexible design with no ability to opt out.

    Yes they finally realized they had no other choice but to return to their loyal customers the option to continue using the product that *they* preferred, and NOT the one that their software developers presumed was better.

    Thanks for sorting the 500 error - normal service has been resumed!

    @stupidcupid

    The symphony page you linked to had a massive flash file at the top of it - that's why it looked the way it did. I'm sure that the Paid Partners on here will have the option to do that on the new layout just as they did on the old. IMO the overall functionality of the new layout is a major step up from the old, we get far more options to tweak the pages and get them to look how we want. As for A4 vs A2, I'm much more of an A3 kinda guy... :)

  112. Could you guys consider increasing the character count for the channel titles? Some of us like to use song lyrics for our titles, and the character count now just doesn't cut it.

    Glad to see you fixed the thumbnail problem though. It's appreciated.

  113. The new design will not work for my channel, which needs to have a lot of information provided on the channel page. (Check it out and see for yourself: youtube.com/AntiPornographyBlog)
    Please allow me and others who need and/or want the current design to keep it. Thanks! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  114. Any chance of allowing autoplay on normal videos at the touch of a button? Sometimes I love to watch through my favourites one after the other, so if you could add an option, that would be excellent.

    Also, if you could allow us to change the amount of comments / recent activity items are on display at will, that would be excellent.

    In addition to this, if you could add YouTube RealTime support, and maybe show who's online next to their "friends" images, that would be ace, and also the option to scroll through all friends on the same page would be good as well.

    Another couple of design things you could change would be the "subscribe" and "+ friend" icons, and so that the designs never get old, some people, maybe just partners, could have the option to add a banner or background image to each of the boxes to make them look snazzy

    Great work so far though, especially now you've got the video window and comments functions sorted.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Transparency please? And could you guys consider increasing the character count for the channel titles? Some of us like to use song lyrics for our titles, and the character count now just doesn't cut it.

    Also, many would appreciate the video section to not take up so much room. Is it possible to have a smaller section for that? Or better yet, make it a tiny bit more like the old format in terms of module placement?

    All in all I', still a little iffy about the new format. I still much prefer the old, but a few tweaks to the beta to make it more like a mix between the old and the new would probably make all the users much happier.

    Thank you for your time!

  117. I am really not liking this new look. There's so much going on that it slows down my browser to a snails pace. And most of it seems rather unessisary. Its too complicated and doesn't work the way I want it to, no matter how much I adjust the settings. And when I press that "revert to old style" button NOTHING happends!

    I much perfer the old style more. It was easy to use and not such a pain to deal with. And it did not lagg my browser down. If anything fix that "Revert to Old Style" button so that it actually does take me back to the old look without all the unessisary crap.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I don't like the new look, I had my channel all dialed in the way I liked it, with a really nice pic for the background, and now the background pic hardly shows, because all the boxes are centered. that sucks.

    also I liked having the ability to organize my videos with the ones I wanted seen(in the 9 top videos box)

    I think the new layout doesn't have enough customizable features, there seems like there was more flexibility and creativity available with the old layout.

    i.e. which side you could put things on, which order the boxes were in, etc.

    I feel the new layout really limits creativity.

    I switched back to the old, hopefully I'll be able to keep it the way that I like it and not the ugly new way.

  119. Please look at my channel and see what happened to the text when I went to the new design.HORRIBLE...all the info I have typed so carefully which is the crux of my channel and that people WANT to read, is skewed over to the left. Half of it is in the clear area and the other half is hanging out in the background area where it's not even readable.This is a BUG that should be fixed.Please check it out.I am sure my channel can't be the only one with a lot of text info on the page.

Also Beta-fied groups are bad! There are so many glitches, like the inability to open threads!

  124. Hey, look everyone, don't be afraid of change!
    I did think just like you and did not want to change, then I took the time to try out the new channels and it really is very good! far better than the old ones.
    You are now in control selecting everything to your own taste.
    Mine new channel looks really balanced now, clean and clear and far better!
    Just take a bit of time and try it out.
    Once they sort out the background image issue I'll be very happy.
    Check mine now mikesndbs and see what I mean, you can move all the modules around using the little arrows on their top right, you can choose the size as well.
    Give it a try!

  127. Slightly O/T, but it's nice to see constructive feedback over here, as opposed to the mess of BUAGs (big ugly ASCII graphics) complaining about the new design on the comments attached to the main blog posting.

    Many of those comments remind me of the uninformed whines over at Facebook whenever they trialled, then introduced a design change - and could mislead people into thinking that the vast majority of the community were opposed to the changes, whereas in reality the picture's much more balanced.

    I suppose at least part of their anger comes from the usual software upgrade woes - people have become accustomed to the current version, know it inside out, and can't see anything wrong with it. They (hopefully incorrectly!) assume that transitioning to the new version will involve a steep learning curve and removes / repositions key features they liked using.

    Have patience, expect a lot of negative feedback over the next month or two, but hopefully once people actually start using it and discover the new features, they'll grow to like it.

    Now lunchtime's arrived, so I can upgrade my (tiny!) account and see what's what...

  136. Two things that are vitally needed (and I note they are in your list) -
    * Ability to reorder your uploads, or your lists of playlists
    * Showing the upload date in the video description

    Note though that for the first of these you should retain the existing feature where on the channel page, videos are reordered as the channel owner decides - but on the full list of videos, videos are shown in order. This is very important to me in laying out my channel,and looking at those of other people.

    Upload date is important to me when looking at other people's videos.

    I am amazed that the beta has got this far - almost to the stage of compulsory release - with these features not enabled. This would be a big step backward.

  137. Hey Brian,

    It's looking good, however I have one suggestion that I think will quell all of the frustration many people are having. I think the biggest issue is that the the Profile info area is no longer on the left of the channel video. Allow that to be a moveable module, and I think many people would be happier with the changes.

    Boom.

    Other than that, great job!

  141. While watching a video on the main page is it possible to expand the video to a larger window when the user selects HD rather than just playing it in the same small window which seems intended for HQ and 'normal' video resolutions, even if this means opening the video on its own page such as it does when you click the video itself?

    A lot of focus seems to be taken away from individual videos and more emphasis on remaining on the channel page. I feel this takes away from the community participation of the video by making it more time consuming and less likely that viewers will leave comments on any given video.

    When a user opts to view a video I would still like to see that video open on it's own page as it did with the old channels rather than just playing it within a table object on the channel page. Maybe you could give members a Boolean flag which allows them to determine whether a video selected plays within the existing channel page or loads the video on its own page.

    Other key items such as 'Video Response to' and 'Video Responses' are missing from the video being played within the channel page.

  142. The playlist "latest dates" seems a little unstable. I've seen at least 3 of my playlists update itself even though I've made no changes to it whatsoever. Can this be clarified? Thanks, YouTube.

  143. One thing I noticed with the new layout is that in IE8, not all of my uploads are showing up on the right hand side. They all show up in Firefox though. This might have been mentioned before, sorry if it has been. Other than that, good job with the new layout.

  144. Many, many people are protesting this change!! If you, I guess your name is Brian were smart at all, you wouldn't force people to have something they didn't want!! It is possible to have a choice!! I know. Please just let us have a choice!!! You're forgetting that it's us YouTubers who make YT what it is!!

    ReplyDelete
  145. Well....while I still agree with much of what I wrote earlier I will say that having spent some time with the new layout, it's not as bad as I thought. I still HATE the scrolling menus because the whole page inevitably bobs up and down which is so ANNOYING!!!! On the other hand you can do more right from the channel window than you could before.
    Eh....whatever.....it's YouTube....it's free....it still works.....let's just all chill!!!

  146. I was just wondering if you could go back to the box of the top favorites instead of the list of all the favoites. I found the box form just so easy to use, and it listed my top favorites not just all of them. Thanks

  147. One other thing may be if we had the choice to stay at our old channel instead of updating, I know people would like to stay on the original channel...just trying to make everyone happy

Please help =(

  149. When ever I switch over to my new version channel I get the error that monkeys have been dispatched to fix this issue. It makes it so I can not access my own channel. Please get this fixed before the deadline for partners!

  151. I'm getting to like it. I just want my personal info (or just the channel's description) up there somewhere, and, as usually, transparency. When the comments and list of subscribers etc. are not on the same level on the bottom of the page, there's a big empty space. I want to have pictures on my channel's background!

    Otherwise, good job! I hope the whiners won't leave YT just because they don't want to get used to something.

    (sorry for O/T, but the other blog is being spammed as if their life depended on it)

  153. I just created an account and cannot revert back to the old style. Whenever I click the Revert back to old style button, it does nothing.

    In addition, when I go into privacy settings and try to get it to stop displaying the age I put in, the age still appears on the profile. Is that a recognized bug?

    ReplyDelete
  154. You need to include a way to watch channel videos in full screen, and a way to visit the video's page without loading the video on the channel.

    ReplyDelete
  155. I hate this new channel design. I honestly DON'T see what's so hard about bringing back the transparency option. Also, this new channel REALLY slows my computer down. You've ignored just about EVERYTHING I said except for the Subscribe button. Also, I switched back to the old designmonths ago, I just didn't feel like telling it until now. And it doesn't really matter anyway because I quit YouTube. I just coudn't take its immense crapiness anymore. Plus, I'm locked out of my main account. Also, keep in mind that if you enforce that new beta design on everyone I can GUARANTEE you will lose half of your users. Now you can deny this all you want, but you know it's true. But it won't have any effect on me anyway since I quit YouTube. Yeah, you heard me. Good day to you.

  156. jwilliams:
    They mentioned in the other blog that all new channels will automatically have the new style and will not be able to go to the old style. Other channels will have the deadline of July 15th and Partners will have a different deadline as well.

  157. Also, frufru, we're not whining. We're saying something that's true. Now, you can stay on YouTube's side and tell us that we are "quitting YouTube just because we don't want ot get used to something" all you want, but this new beta channel is a problem. And I can't BELIEVE that you're siding with the YouTube staff and are actually ENCOURAGING the new beta design. Makes me gag. Oh, well, it's your opinion.

  160. CHANNELS BETA SUCKS. I want to view different videos in different browser tabs/windows (right click/middleclick does not work in this crappy new design). I want to view favorites/uploads in a large box rather than a tiny rectangle at the side of the screen. 99% of custom channel designs/colour schemes look horrible to me and I would rather not see them at all, but this new design gives me no choice.

    If you go ahead and force this on us all on the 15th of July, on that same day I will delete all my videos and close my account.

  162. Everything that's in that "New Channels Coming Soon" video will not be true in this new beta version!! You say you want us to feel at home? How the heck can we feel at home when everything we love about our channels will be gone??? Tell us this!! This whole thing is absurd and I can't believe anyone would want to have just a standard channel over a channel that you have more control over. If you have any sense, Brian, you would make it so everyone can be happy or at least half of the users will leave!!

  163. We really need in new channel, some area to write things that we want, in old channels we can do it in playlist, and now, what can i do?
    Please, it's a easely thing to do.

  164. frufru had a great idea...give as many options as possible to make the new channel look like the old one...if I am FORCED to change, I will NOT be on as much as I use to ...Youtube has really taken a nose dive from how it use to be ...I don't want everyone watching my every move ...and the new channel design is to confusing and unpersonal...I want my old design, not boring colors... Youtube has lost the community and personal feeling it use to have...Youtube should be more personal, which is why it is called "You" tube...otherwise it would be called "tech" tube or "us" tube and that would drive me away in a heartbeat...I'm sorry, but the old version is INFINITY times better...pleas don't ruin the site by FORCING everyone to make the switch...there are so many problems with the new look...and if you put up a poll, I bet an avalanche would say to keep the old channel I'm sorry, but that's just how I feel about the "unpersonalization" of this site.

  170. well i like the new channel design so far
    here are some suggestions

    moving the featured video and
    uploads/favorites/subscribers/friends freely like below the channel discription
    transparancy options

    thats it i really like it so far

  171. Could you guys make an option to delete a user-created theme and remove the 256K limit for backgrounds? These would definitely be just another two small steps to make the new channels even better. '_^

  179. those new channels... are horrible, really

    ReplyDelete
  180. I wouldn't be so pissed off about the new channel layout if there was a fullscreen option on the channel's movie player. Instead, I get to click on the video on the sidebar, and then click the link to bring up the regular youtube video page, and then fullscreen it.

    I also don't like how you cannot pick which playlists show up. If you select you want all 20 playlists to show, it will display 3 like normal, except random ones, and then you "see all" to view them all. If you only choose the 3 you want to show up, clicking "see all" only shows you those 3.

    Ya I tried 2.0 for a week, hated it and went back to the regular channel look. Now I'm kinda pissed I'll be forced to change in July.

    ReplyDelete
  181. I also want to be able to default to grid view, because it shows more. (Also because I hate the new channel video player for the above reasons.)

    ReplyDelete
  182. besides annotations & linkedtube, youtube beta channel should allow clickable links to appear on the videos

    ReplyDelete
  183. Something really useful for partners would be to allow us to re-upload HD or HQ versions of our older videos without having to loose your comments, views, URL, etc...

    I understand the main problem would be with people potentially replacing videos with completely different content. In that case, perhaps there could be an approval process, and maybe only allow it for partners at first. Vimeo already has this feature as well as Blip.tv.

  187. Hey! Is the Video Blog (where you can feature a Playlist) really gone? Please tell me it isn't! I love the Video Blog and I use it as a "spotlights" section to feature one or two videos that I really like, with a custom description of why I like it.

    My channel is specifically made to help starting YouTubers out. Losing my Video Blog would be a huge step back for me :(.

    I hope there's a way to bring it back. Thanks!

  190. I've been giving this a try, and have mixed feelings about it.

    The good:

    I like being able to edit from the front page. It's not difficult to do, although it took me a second to figure out how to edit the text in my info section.

    I am glad we can still use our own background images. It may seem trivial to some, but I enjoy being able to show some individuality like that. I only tend to change mine about once a year, so I get attached to it.

    I LOVE that we can now choose not to display the last log-in time, or our age and location. That's a feature I've been wanting for a long time.

    The not-so-good:

    The focus seems to be more on subscribers, friends, channel comments, etc, rather than our videos. I realize you can choose which modules to display, but I think those of us who actually create videos for upload would appreciate more than a single featured video, with just a scrollbar and tiny thumbnails for the rest of our videos. I liked the featured 9 videos from the old design, and hope you'll consider putting that back in.

    Transparency: echoing many here, but I realize you are working on that.

    Again, I'm not crazy about the scrollbar when editing text on the left hand side, which only shows 3 lines at a time. Maybe if you could increase this, it would help.

    Channel Title is now just a small piece of text stuck in the upper left-hand corner. I think it needs to stand out more, for those of us who are not partners, and don't have banners.

    The font in general is way too small.

    So, I'm willing to try it out, but I do hope that there will be many improvements upon what we are seeing right now in the beta build.

  191. The main reasons I hate the new design:

    * Slow and bloated
    * Ugly
    * Right click does not work so you cannot open videos in new tabs or windows
    * Uploads/favorites list crammed into a tiny list at the side, instead of the classic grid view which was much nicer to use
    * I much preferred the concept of seperate pages for videos. It makes it much easier to read the comments, and often I can't stand people's custom colour schemes or designs, anyway. I sure as heck don't want to 'stay in the experience' of whatever channel - I just want to watch the damn videos.

    Sorry for my rude tone, but I need to get my point across. I can't stand the new channel design, and by the looks of it neither does the majority of people.

  193. One thing I forgot to mention in my above post: the editing bar takes up too much space on the channel page. On my monitor, the YouTube account bar, home/subscriptions/videos etc bar, the edit bar and the toolbar at the bottom, take up almost a quarter of the screen when at the top of the page. It feels squashed and claustrophobic.

  195. The more I "play" with this, the more things I'm not liking. I agree with those who say they want the video to open in a new window, and that it all plays on the main page. I can't even figure out how to get to my non-featured video's page, now, because I keep getting "oops an error occurred" when double clicking the thumbnail. There is no option in right-click. What am I doing wrong, here?

    Also, I hope you reconsider taking away the video log. It's an important feature for many people.

  197. Okay listen, I've tried this new beta thingy and I took me at least 5 minutes to figure out how to edit, I DO NOT like the fat ass (Excuse my language) video log in the very beginning, I DO NOT like how EVERYTHINGS crammed together, I was wondering WHY you're doing this, I mean, I get that you want more people to join but, I've read almost ALL of these comments and most of them say NO to the new beta channels, I actually has an idea, why don't you take a poll to see what people like about the new design and what they don't like, and then you could like MIX the old design with the new desgin and see how people like it, like, I REALLY like how the videos are in grid form now, I also like how the comments aren't put together like everything else, I like the BIG letters, now the things I like about the new ones are that you don't have to go to a new page to edit but it took me 5 minutes to figure out and normally things only take me a minute to figure out, I also like how you can comment right away, things I don't like about the new channels are like I said the fat ass video log, how its all crammed together, how we ONLY have side bars and, its just frusterating! Also maybe people who just join after July 15th should be stuck with this, no offence to anyone! Just an idea! Thanks for listening, =^$) ~ Taylor!
