New YouTube Player can now be Enabled Without any Extension
After a timely realization of inadequacy of the clumsy manual method for enabling YouTube’s new interface, Google is offering appreciators of the revised player of its video service a user-accessible switch for enabling the newer view.
Now users can check the new YouTube Player pretty easily. For that, they need to log into their Google account and sign up for Test Tube. Those who are missing the player, can get the player by clicking at the “get the player” found at the bottom of the display screen of their device.
Enabling the new player is not compulsory. That is, users can stay with the older version, enable the newer one, and restore to the previous one in case they dislike the recently introduced UI. To move back to the old version, users will have to open the same page where they enabled the new one and click “restore original player.”
YouTube’s New HTML5 video player shows a vivid control bar whose appearance is subjected to its usage; it disappears when you are not using it. It marks certain other differences as well. To illustrate, it features much bolder icons as compared to the previous one.
“Our new player design has a bit more polish, gets out of the way of your video playback, and scales to any screen or embed size. Give it a spin while we continue to add features and refine the look and feel,” reads YouTube testtube page.
