All new youtube with new buttons that freeze my webpage only on mouse over (and my internet connection is 6mb/s and my computer is not that cheap,,,) ... BRING ME OLD OYUTUBE PLEASE >:D<
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! GamerBomb 3/5/10 2:27 PM
Ya, we want the old youtube back, and not all this new shit. The old youtube is a lot better than this new shit. It is like the new youtube channels. We all complained about it, but did google listen? Nope they fucking don't care about what their users are thinking about the updates.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! 772ggb 3/5/10 4:40 PM
personally i hate it too.. are we talking about the new design for all of youtube and not just the channels?? if so, i had a chance to use and see this new design last night.. i spent 1+ hour trying it out and i gotta say instead of looking innovating it really looks like something from years ago.. and i quote:

faberoptime

"Yes, pretty appauling that YouTube treats its user base as a huge petri dish."

some stuff i did not like:

1. The way I had to access my edit playlists page (first click on your user -that little box will pop up- then click on account, then read every single link until you find the one that says playlists, and then finally get to your playlists).

2. The 'more info' box was below the videos instead of to the right. Yup, not good because its kind of lost down there, and as you click on that little arrow (that i didn't like as well) you had to scroll down further than you had when the 'more info' was to the right, thus missing more parts of the video while you are trying to watch it and read more info at the same time.

3. The way comments, ratings, comment votes, related videos showed up. I mean only two options, like this video - dont like it. and the comment votes werent to be seen. (I vote comments a lot :)

4. While listening to a playlist, the playlist box to the upper right side didn't stand out as it should, until clicking on the little arrow.

5. There were more whites and grays (colorwise/color wise)

and so on... im trying to remember a few more things but thats about it.

In my opinion it still has a lot a flaws and detail issues.

and my god, only 9 replies? where the hell is everybody else!? lol
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! hkinomoto 3/6/10 3:04 AM

RESPOND DIRECTLY TO THE VIDEO PAGE REDESIGN TEAM: FILL OUT THE SURVEY https://survey.googleratings.com/wix/p3828432.aspx

Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! 772ggb 3/19/10 8:54 AM
thanks Cadwalladee i just submitted the survey..
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Hurricoaster 3/19/10 3:51 PM
I agree. There is absolutely no need for a change (although Google thinks people want it). Most people have become so accustomed to the way it was. The original layout is so perfect. There is nothing wrong with it, and there is absolutely no reason to change it. Any changes to YouTube will just make it 10 times worse than before.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! thekid9455 3/24/10 11:39 AM
Dear Google,

God Youtube is awful now, ever since this last redesign that took effect in just the last few weeks or month I've been physically reviled by Youtube. I am going to tell everyone I know about how awful I think Youtube has become and encourage them to encourage others to find alternatives to youtube. I am totally offended by Your ostentatious re-design of Youtube when I was totally satisfied with it before. This isn't about change, I'm all for change and evolution but you really did a number on what should be a God of brands. Google, I know you're not listening, because much like God, you don't listen to anyone, but if you're going to change something, change it for the better, not for the worse you noodle heads. Otherwise, we'll just find some other novelty video sharing program and turn you off like a fucking light switch like we did to myspace when they didn't listen. You think you've cornered the online video market? Try us. We're as fickle as ever.

Sincerely,


Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! SilverRain 3/24/10 2:15 PM
I agree. I liked the old design much better, that layout was perfect with the description next to the video, related videos & videos from the same user below it and the comments sorted by date. Please bring back the old, perfect layout!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! M23 3/24/10 6:39 PM
google most likely wont care about the results but fill out the survey anyway
 
 
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! SonicRyan1992 3/24/10 8:02 PM
There are plenty of things I hate about this recent update.
1. The Account Button DOESN'T Work.
2. Video Framerate Issues.
3. Response Issues on Some Buttons (ie. Favor Videos, Quicklist Options, etc.)
I have other issues, but I'll get over them. The real problem is the above three.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! M23 3/24/10 11:18 PM
^plus you cant even flag videos anymore that button is not there.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! M23 3/24/10 11:20 PM
or rate them
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! RedEyeSilverAngel 3/31/10 7:08 PM
Did anyone notice that the url is no longer there? What's up with that. Also, I miss the old rating system with the five stars. There is absolutely no need for a change. It was fine the way it was. I know most will agree, Youtube needs to change it back and leave it the hell alone. If it's not broken then don't fix it. At Ieast I think thats how it goes. Oh well you get the point.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! C Dub 3/31/10 7:16 PM
Hi RedEyeSilverAngel,

You can still see the URL by clicking the "Share" button - it expands below it. Also, we do still have a rating system but we've moved away from the 5 star scale. You can still rate videos up or down by clicking the "Like (thumbs up)" or thumbs down buttons. Please keep sending your feedback here and through our survey: https://survey.googleratings.com/wix/p4095212.aspx

Cheers,

Chris
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Cadwalladee 3/31/10 8:02 PM

Apparently this redesign is to compete with TELEVISION VIEWERSHIP (according to a couple of articles I read). The redesign has already been responsible for a 6% or so increase in video viewership. By making the "interactive features" less accessable and the "automated playback" more automated, viewership of videos will increase, (based on YouTubes's magic formula for figuring out what you will watch) in direct competetion to television. Therefore, more ad revenue for YT/Google.

This was not listed in the reasons we were given for the redesign...

I forgot to mention, that by "liking" a video, that video goes into your "likes" folder - you cannot edit or delete these files because YT/Google needs it for their "magic formula".

This is of course, YT/Google's perogative - they are after all offering a "free" service with every intention of making money off of YOU should you opt in to use it.

Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! drunksmokingjurkk 3/31/10 8:58 PM
totally agreed
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Liz YouTube support 3/31/10 9:36 PM
Hey guys!

Some folks at YouTube and I have gathered together this evening and have been reading your posts here in the forum (and also looking at input from the community on Twitter). There's quite a lot to go through! ;) I posted a response to the most common questions and feedback on the new video page layout here:

Hopefully this post answers some of your questions and provides you with resources so you can learn how to use the new page design.

My response is posted on the main "new video page" conversation too ( http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/youtube/thread?tid=4dada745ea919c0a&hl=en&fid=4dada745ea919c0a00048324ab0ad50a ) but there are many comments & I was a bit concerned that my post to you may get lost! Hope that by posting on a separate thread it helps you find the info.
I've said it once, and I'll say it again, I feel lucky that we have a such a strong and vocal community and that we're constantly provided with your input. Thank you.

To repeat what Chris said earlier, filling out this survey is the most effective way to let the team in San Bruno know what you think of the new design and provide them with your suggestions: 

We appreciate you visiting the forum expressing your opinion to us. All the best from this end for now,

~ Liz 
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Shas1814 3/31/10 9:50 PM
The new youtube has GOT to be an April Fool's joke!
This is shit, folks.
Just pure, unadulterated shit.
Put it back or say goodbye.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Shas1814 3/31/10 9:54 PM
Liz, I had a look at your "response."
The message seems to be,
you will do as you choose, our opinion means nothing.
Well, that's consistent with the impossibility of contacting "customer service",
your arbitrary and, your vindictive copyright vendetta.
I had just reached 3500 subscribers
but now I'm shopping for my new video sharing service.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! HazardCinema 4/1/10 3:57 AM
This new YouTube sucks, change it back to the old style, it was perfect before.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! pokermel 4/2/10 5:40 AM
Youtube/Google I hope you are listening.....We hate the new interface! Sometimes change is bad. There was nothing wrong with Youtube before. I know I have reduced my time on youtube, I wonder how many other people have? People like reading other people's comments to videos. We like discussing videos. You have made that totally confusing. The person/people responsible for this awful change need to go back to school.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! hotcheeseonpizza. 4/2/10 6:06 AM
THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS WTF NO RATINGS AND SO CALLED "NEAT" LAYOUT?

HOW MANY TIMES DO U NEED TO CHANGE IT

YOUTUBE IS ABOUT THE VIDEOS NOT THE FRIGGING LAYOUT NOBODY GIVES A SHIT JUST GIVE US THE NORMAL SIMPLE ONE LIKE LAST TIME.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! JustLearningGuitar 4/2/10 6:36 AM
The new video page is another lame addition to all those changes YouTube/Google has been stuffing down our throats!!!
There is no more way to access the video edit option and also doing annotations directly from the video page is gone!!!
How unpractical!!!
If you have many videos it was quite easy to edit the description by just clicking the edit button at the bottom of the sidebar.
Now you have to go to that video from "Your Videos" which, if you have many, is a long procedure to find the one you want to edit the description of.
 
Well, some bugs have been fixed but still I think it is appalling the way YouTube forces users into unwanted changes!
And all this while at the same time we still have to work with a totally lame PM system and all the complaints about dead accounts are not done anything about.
Did you know that there are many, maybe hundreds of thousands, unused accounts running and taking space on YouTube servers? All accounts that have been made but never used or maybe used for some time but than neglected?
So why not find a way to free up space by deleting those accounts?
And than there still is the issue of finding dead accounts and deleting them from your channel page.
It would be easy to mark those accounts by a red cross over the channel icon, but NO.... YouTube/Google rather imposes unnecessary changes on their users instead of tackling the REAL problems!

BRING BACK THE PROPER YOUTUBE INSTEAD OF THIS SHIT BAAAAAAAAAAH.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! rattracing91 4/2/10 11:36 AM
I do not appreciate the new Youtube layout. Google/Youtube should listen to the public and change it back to the way it was. Change is fine and all, but do it properly and gradually. Such a big change was a mistake; I feel that I'm on a different website now. The old layout seemed much better organized and not to busy. The new one seems haphazardly organized. And to the person that headed the project of switching Youtube's format: I appreciate your efforts, but they have not been well received by the public. It might be in the companies best interest to listen to their users. But then again, remember that as a corporation, Google can do whatever they want to the website as they please, and what their shareholders approve.

Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! M23 4/2/10 9:07 PM
just wait until they do another change..it will be even worse
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! kgwrld 4/2/10 11:24 PM
download google chrome...and youtube works great.  I suppose that is just an accident...right?  anyway thats what I did and now all the videos work fine.  guaranteed youtube will not change back ...it is made for google chrome.  
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! ForbiddenMagic 4/2/10 11:46 PM
Just to add to everyone complaining i completely agree. THIS IS HORRIBLE. The channels thing really annoyed me, but this is not only utterly annoying, but also about as ugly as you can get. I cannot stand to look at it, I hate having to scroll down to read the video description, actually i should stop there because there is not a single thing i LIKE about this layout and you guys are probably not going to do anything to address our complaints, so ... whats the point..



Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! shocktop 4/3/10 12:45 AM
I dont know what the problem is but its been hard to post my comments on videos, all it says is ERROR, ERROR THEN I HAVE TO TYPE THE STUPID CODE IN .I think they are doing this to get us to use something else an it is just retarded. whats next assholes, just keep ruening my experience.

suuuuuuuckkkkkkksssssss . cant find anything who has voted how many stars were are the subscription channels?/ should make it like yahoo. have a choice old look or new?. just post every comment on youtube saying how bad it is... 
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! rover54 4/3/10 6:41 AM
With all the fakers out there who write bullshit descriptions, it's just sooo great having no star rating and watching crap endlessly.
 
Without a star rating, wandering on youtube is like jumping in a can of spam blindfolded and hoping the next link won't be a scam.
 
Seriously Google, you preach to webmasters about "focusing on user experience" and you give us this crap? Do you really think people are stupid enough to waste hours clicking on untrusted links? People may be stupid for a couple of minutes, but in the long run this will backfire big time.
 
 
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! peanutisgood 4/3/10 11:48 AM
Okay Google. I am sick of all of the crap that you put on the new Youtube. I can't even find the description or how to comment. I have to get my neighbor to show me how to favorite a video, and I'm not retarded. This site is just so hard to use. BRING OLD YOUTUBE BACK. Google is stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! allnamestaken804 4/3/10 12:33 PM
I use to know right away if a video was worth watching with the 5 star rating system but not anymore! Birng back the old YouTube laout!!!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! PMachete 4/3/10 12:46 PM
YouTube/Google,

Bring the old layout back for the love of god.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! lordthree 4/3/10 3:51 PM
Yep. This is crap now. Please change it back. 5 star rating system was working just fine. Previews other related videos on the right were fine, and DATING the comments was fine. This sux now.

I just posted a comment with a video with some musical notes in there

And the damn YouTube system flagged it as SPAM!!!

Get a life YouTube, you SUCK!!!!

No it was like that the moment I posted it!
And why would anybody flag something like that???

Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Yinyangbalance 4/4/10 1:03 PM
The new youtube is horrible. It degrades the quality of any new .wmv video's I upload. It didn't do this before, my videos used to be clear. Now when I upload my new videos, they are all blurry. So I tried uploading a DVD quality .avi version which was 100x more megabytes, and yea the quality was a little bit less blurry but it totally cut out the first 6 seconds of my video.
You know how long it took me to upload that video? 3 hrs! Only to find out that the first 6 seconds are gone!

What is wrong with these Youtube developers. Fix this!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! jambo888 4/4/10 1:18 PM
The new Youtube is a BIG MISTAKE!

Having the 5-star rating and total number of votes made allowed me to get a sense of how the youtube community viewed a video. Now I don't see any rating at all until I select vote up or down and this binary selection is not nearly as informational.

How did you fail so bad?

New Youtube = New Coke.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Toby R. 4/4/10 2:14 PM
It's certainly a bad idea to change many things that already work well - without ANY consent whatsoever, might I add.

YouTube = Google = Big Corporation
that totally lacks accountability.  If they didn't lack that accountability, they would've listened to the community and acknowledged that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

-If I make a quicklist a button that says quicklists doesn't appear as it did before on every page, now I have to go to My Videos and then theres a small place where it says quicklists. 
-Now I have to refresh pages very often to get the video to play or stream faster.
-I cannot see videos by the same user next to the video I'm watching it's just related videos.
-Every once in a while when I make a search while making a video it just doesn't work. It doesn't show them on the right of the video like it should.
-When searching while watching a video the name of the results is not fully shown if the title is too long, and putting the mouse over it doesn't show it.
-Videos in queue might not play, they might play twice, and if I turn on autoplay it might play a video I didn't tell to play, like from the channel, or playlist of the video I'm watchin
-I cannot tell what rating a video has when I start watching it.

There was no need for change Google Folks. Youtube's original layout was perfect. Besides, the new one does not makes it easier to navigate and it isn't as beautiful.

Rollback to the older version guys, this is seriously a big nuisance.

Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! i0ink 4/6/10 8:00 PM
Sorry for the spam but we should stop using youtube until they fix it
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! jakelikestosmile 4/6/10 8:37 PM
I see here A LOT of people complaining Youtube don't care or listen.
Well actually, on the first day they released the update they decided to have regular meetings to decide on updates and work out what the users want and don't want. They've probably read everything you've written here.
And they've planned to make some changes:
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! DanielFTS 4/7/10 12:28 AM

First of all, thanks YouTube for all your hard work in the past.  I am not happy about any of the changes, but what bothers me the most is mainly the related video thumbnails or icons, located to the right of the screen.  They are very distracting to the eye and take away from the relaxing and peaceful video viewing experience.  I just cannot imagine continuing to watch videos this way. The Thumbnails are headache provoking and make the screen look very busy. 

One side of the screen is white on the left, and the other filled with distracting colors of the related video icons stacked on top of one another.  Please at least move the related videos down to where they used to be and create a calmer space to the right of the screen.

I also think it will look a lot cleaner if you took the icons out that are in between the top of the screen and the title of the video.  I am overall not satisfied with the rest of the changes but if you make the changes I just mentioned it'll be a tremendous help. 
 
Thank you
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! M23 4/7/10 4:39 AM
@jake i'm sure they read the posts but i doubt they will make changes because nobody likes their work
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! JustLearningGuitar 4/7/10 5:26 AM
Here is someone who came up with a very good looking design for the YouTube video/comment page.
I would have liked this much more than this minimalistic page it is now.
 
 
 
YouTube, being a company, has employees working for them, people who earn their livelihood by designing or rather redesigning a site and by reviewing videos, reacting on complaints etc etc.
Anybody who has been on YouTube for a long time will have gone through loads of unnecessary changes.
First they were made because they needed more space to exploit the free uploaded videos in a more efficient way by putting more advertising to them.
Those changes however were made so badly and were so full of bugs that ever since they did not get to grips with their site anymore.
So who is to blame?
Wouldn't it be obvious that those under qualified employees are?
So get a better recruiting system YouTube, so you get employees who are better qualified at doing this job.
You really have to go to the basics of the problem to be able to come up with a solution and this basis is GOOD STAFF.
If you keep on cleaning up the mess with the same under qualified staff you can go on for ages and never get a proper site going.
The basis of the idea of having a video based social networking site is a very good one.
It is the way it is implemented that makes it go bad.
Google, being a major software developer could have done a much better job at this than they have done with YouTube.
It should not all be about EASY MONEY..... you are playing with the work of millions of REAL people here of whom the most of them deserve respect for all their LABOR OF LOVE!
So start taking them serious and start concentrating on the real problems at hand.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! jakelikestosmile 4/7/10 5:37 AM
@M23 You obviously didn't read the article I attached, but you probably should seeing as this means so much to you - it says they actually -are- making changes and will roll them out in the following week.

@jake or maybe i'm just not like you and believe everything i read online esp from the likes of google?
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! jakelikestosmile 4/7/10 6:19 AM
@M23 It's not from Google, it's from Mashable.
But anyway, I've just told you that they are making changes. You've got what you want, partly, yet you still seem to be fighting and unwilling to be happy with getting part of what you wanted.
I don't believe everything I read, but when an unbias source sat in and watched them make decisions then I can trust it. Especially when I can't see one reason why the team in that office would want to refuse to make changes.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! M23 4/7/10 6:23 AM
i'll be happy when they actually do it
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! jakelikestosmile 4/7/10 6:26 AM

new page design sucks please change it to old one u guys fucked yoube 10000 peoples have same prolem after u change ur page design when evr i play video it gives an error occurred message so plz change it and solve my problem soonnnnnnnnn thanks
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! jakelikestosmile 4/7/10 10:48 AM
That message can probably be solved without changing to the old layout!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! jaskiefer 4/7/10 3:36 PM
Yes! the comment system and the rating system suck.  But how do you feel about the most important thing.  Our video viewing experience on the page, and how distracting those Related Video Thumbnail are to the right of the screen.  They are very distracting and give the screen a busy look, taking away from the calm and relaxing video viewing experience.  What are your thoughts on that? 
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! jakelikestosmile 4/7/10 4:56 PM
I have not much thoughts to be honest, as I don't find it distracting.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! DanielFTS 4/7/10 4:58 PM
how can you possibly not?
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! TLL253 4/8/10 3:15 AM
Absolutely hate it. Bring back the History view page, star rating system, and why can't I remove certain modules on the homepage for guest viewers? The new layout is just honestly too complicated and not very helpful. I want to be able to scroll though the right window pane for videos also.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! JustLearningGuitar 4/8/10 3:36 AM
@all
Groups pages have changed as well with an, in my opinion, very strange layout, which is very hard to navigate and the scroll bars don't seem to work at all.
It is just VERY annoying to see how YouTube gets all messed up at the hand of incompetent designers!!!!
Another FAIL!!!
 
.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! fireball570 4/9/10 5:35 PM
IT SUCKS SO MUCH. When watching a video you cant right click on the videos on the side to put them in a tab. you have to open them under your current tab but then you stop watching you video. They layout is very poor. There should be a button to switch back to the old on if you wish. Things are alot harder to do now on youtube. I used to give it 5/5 but now it's a 3/5 for me. maybe even a 2/5.
 
 
YOUTUBE DEVELOPERS...YOU SUCK ASS!!!!!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! fireball570 4/9/10 5:39 PM
PEOPLE want also to be able to scroll through the related videos while watching there one rather than having to scroll for 10mins down the screen to find the next video.
 
AGAIN YOTUBE NOW SUCKS ASS!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Dub-Ya 4/10/10 9:00 PM
I don't care about the design...but the damn thing is soooo slow, across multiple ISP's....THAT is what I hate.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! RipAndCompromise 4/11/10 12:41 AM
i dont like the new ratingsystem commenting system, or the loss of the ability to flag,
 
but i would be fine with that... all of it
if my subscribed videos wernt such a mess on the homepage
you can hardly tell if its an upload or a crappy favorite!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! zakaweryt 4/11/10 11:15 AM
 Change to old design forever!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! DanielFTS 4/11/10 1:59 PM
Among the changes, I'd like to somehow bring to a very important issue to Liz's attention.  If anyone knows how to contact her directly, either let me know, or pass this messsege along to her.
 
The Related Video Icons or Thumbnails directly to the right of the screen are extremely distracting and give the screen a busy look, taking away from the previously calm and relaxing video viewing experience. These colorful icons bother the eyes and distract the viewer's attention from the screen.

There are many other changes that a significant majority of the YouTube users including myself are deeply disappointed about. But the issue of the video Thumbnails to the right of the screen, making the screen busy, is very difficult to overlook . I am sure the millions of international viewers agree that it is frustrating to watch videos with this new arrangement.
I suggest to YouTube to either move the Related Video column down the page to the bottom edge of the screen, or at least get rid of the top 3 or 4 icons or thumbnail.
The following is a link to a YouTube survey regarding the changes. If you are unhappy about this layout, please fill out and submit the survey and let your voices be heard. Here is the link:

https://survey.googleratings.com/wix/p3828432.aspx

You can also write and voice your opinions directly to the YouTube channel. Just simply send a messege to YouTube from you channels.
 
Thanks
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! RontoWolfBackUp 4/12/10 7:08 PM
I used to LOVE YouTube. I thought it was the greatest thing. But Google is changing YouTube WAY too much and WAY too frequently. The old YouTube was perfect. There was nothing wrong with it before this... or even before that... or that. Every time that Google changes something, they make it worse, and everyone hate it. People like Liz say that they have Google staff looking into our opinions, and seeing how they can make it better, but once they change, it stays... It doesn't get better... just worse. It seems like Google cares nothing about our opinions. They will do as they please, and get away with it. The only thing WE can do is complain, and be ignored. I use a lot of Google products, but damn, YouTube which was one my favorite site ever now sucks. It began to suck when they changed to the new channel layout. That was pretty long ago, but what did YouTube do when everyone complained? Nothing... 
These new "features" are awful, and Google's customer support is USELESS!!!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! JustLearningGuitar 4/13/10 2:00 AM

YouTube/Google seems to have very little respect for all the "labor of love" their users are putting into this site.
Of course I understand that there has to be income to keep the site running but I think that Google maybe thought too lightly when they acquired YouTube about how they were going to make it profitable.

For those not familiar with what went down in October 2006 about the deal Google made with the YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steven Chen, who sold YouTube against an all stock deal worth 1.6 billion dollars, the following link to an article from that time:
http://techcrunch.com/2006/10/09/google-has-acquired-youtube/

Now what I do not understand is how a company like Google can make such a deal and than a year later making the announcement that YouTube isn't making any profits.
This all is food for suspicious minds because there has been much talk already about Google being a CIA front.
So let's say it were so and that Google acquired YouTube because of a secret agenda with the CIA just to curve all the freedom of speech and opinion going on on that site via those videos.

Wouldn't that make sense when we look at the changes going on?
We know that freedom of speech and opinion is a real threat to the establishment, that when the common people get informed in different ways than through the mass media, the media controlled by the establishment, about what really is going down; the political and corporate establishment might loose its power.

If people are too much informed about what is really going down in politics and the corporate environment they might revolt against it and the establishment's powers might deteriorate, something the Rockefellers and Rothshilds of this world will be trying to prevent at any costs.
And we all know that the CIA has been doing similar things in the past.
Their power over US policy making is widely spread also within

the corporate environment.I think these are things to consider when we look at the changes within the YouTube site of today.
If Google acquired YouTube for reasons to build on their corporate structure I think they would have done a much more dedicated job.

They would have hired the best possible designers and other staff to keep that site running the way it was.
But now we all know they haven't and we are looking for the reasons why they haven't.

So when you ask me I would say YouTube was bought by Google to silence the video based social networking and what better way to do that than by making the site unpopular by common people (=read users).
By making changes that aren't accepted by them so they stop using YouTube and the powers behind YouTube can transform it into an entirely different kind of site, a site where you have only access to content after paying for it like renting movies etc.

We already see them concentrate more and more on changing their core business towards those things and so it would not surprise me at all if all those changes had the only objective to change their site into a much less desirable site for the users who are using it now.
Nor would I be surprised if one day it would become public that it was the CIA directing all this in the background!
It is known that they have been doing things like this before, so why not also with YouTube???
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! korruption 4/14/10 5:36 PM
This is the worst Youtube change I've ever had to deal with.  Now thanks to this "improvement", I'm completely unable to browse and watch videos on my PS3 or Wii, and the XL is utter shit.
Here's a suggestion, give us both versions of Youtube.  This nu piece of shit that maybe a handful of people in the world who may desperately convince themselves that this abomination is an improvement, and the older, vastly superior version.  At least then everyone will be happy, one way or another.

But it's not like this will do any good anyways, no way in hell will Google listen to our legit complaints about this new turd.  I'll just finish off by saying: Thanks Google, for completely destroying what once was a good site.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! sneakyguy99 4/15/10 7:23 AM
I am a retired NASA research engineer.  Had NASA used the YT design team all of our rockete would have blown up on the pad as they did in the late fifties.  As someone who has seen many successful design projects over a career that spanned more than 30 years at NASA I can't understand how YT could have literaly destroyed an entire website in the blink of an eye.  There is no doubt about it.  Heads should roll at YT.  Every time I look at the video page I cringe.  How could anyone be so stupid to think that this re-design is an improvement? I give up.  I upload a lot of videos to YT but have stopped for the time being.  it's not worth my time and effort to do it.  I've filled out the survey several times but refuse to do it anymore.  The last time I filled out the survey I just said "read the blogs."  I've come to the conclusion that no one at YT has an IQ greater than 25.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! JustLearningGuitar 4/15/10 7:51 AM
@ Sneakyguy99:
You hit the nail on the head man!!!
It is those incompetent designers at YouTube who are destroying what once was set out to be a beautiful idea.
But maybe not only the designers but the entire staff!!!
And asking why made me come to the conclusions I did in my previous post.
Because there has to be some reason for all this and I think it most likely that YouTube is wanting to change the entire structure of their site and curve their core business towards a more commercial structure.
Something where you have to pay to watch videos rather than just watch any video anybody can upload.
In that way they would eliminate the "subversive" elements.

Cons:

- New design, location of modules and especially the down menu sucks!
- Reading comments are too difficult! 
- Poor rating system!
- Very poor date information about comments and video!!!
(By looking last comment , you can see video is fresh or not!)

- Unnecessary detailed information about playback statics! What we will do about this information? 
I don't look my videos statics more deeply why am I look other people videos statics?  

Pros:
Only thing that I liked  is Video player buttons. That's it.  

I saw a message about a freelance design. 
Really it is better than now!

Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Ryoga2k 4/18/10 5:00 PM
Oh yeah, google motto do no evil, well you  did, you fucked up Youtube and you're trying to shove up Chrome on everybody's Ass, you know what?

The videos won't even play for me in Firefox anymore. I even tried disabling all my addons and such and still to no avail. Safari still loads the old style so I know you guys still have the code! At least make an option in user settings or something, like "Use new or old layout."
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! azfardaniel 4/20/10 11:26 AM
I hope YouTube developers including Liz reads this:
 
You know that some big companies crummble?This is one of the reason..they made changes and forgot that one of the keys to successful business is customer's satisfaction..Some people are too greedy to think about other people's opinion..and mostly in long-term all of their valuable customers will to turn to some new company that will out take the big company down to pieces.
 
I'm just saying..cause Youtube was one of my favourites..
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! ChuckJohnsondrummer 4/20/10 12:19 PM
For the past week or so videos have been so slow to load/stream that I have pretty much given up on trying to use YouTube. Add to that the new layout and I feel this is no longer a place to enjoy but one to endure. I am looking into Bling and for any other site where the videos load well. The adds load fine as well as the speed test video. otherwise any video from YouTube, even ones hosted at other sites(iRacing.com and news or intertainment news sites) all load poorly with constant stops for buffering. A damned shame really. I have a business account for my internet service with a download speed near 6 megs, and have zero issues loading at other sites. At least look into the slow loading/streaming and the constant buffering. It is obvious we are stuck with the layout crap but the loading and constant buffering is a serious deal killer. Bling is alright but if anyone knows of a better choice please pass it along.

Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! JustLearningGuitar 4/29/10 9:55 AM
Already for weeks I have been reporting major issues I am having because of the improper YouTube functionings.
 
1. Still I can't comment on any friends channels, some take it, many don't!
2. Comments placed on my channel and comments I place on other channels are for NO REASON AT ALL marked as SPAM.
3. Personal messages I send or that are send to me disappear as soon as I click on them. (I use MS IE8 browser)
4.The GROUPS pages are completely disordered and there is no way of finding the videos you want you to watch.
5. YouTube promissed us 3 weeks ago to address complaints users are having with the new video/comments page layout but nothing is done!!!
 
It looks really like my remark in an earlier comment on these issues: YOUTUBE DOESN'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THEIR USERS, they rather see us all gone I guess!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! AnInterestingDrug 4/30/10 8:07 AM
The new layout is just plain bad. The biggest complaint I have is the way they changed the rating system. Before it was simple to see what content was popular, not spam, and of high quality and entertainment value, because you could see how many stars a video had, and how many users thought the video was THAT GOOD! or THAT BAD!

When you think about it, the reason they changed the rating system of 5 stars and number of votes and made it so complex, out of sight, obscure, hard to decipher, hard to find, and no simple straightforward way to judge a video's quality before clicking on it is just for that reason. They WANT us to click on EVERYTHING! They WANT to click on videos that in the past would not have been clicked on, and would have been avoided at all costs seeing so few stars for a poor video's rating, and votes. The MORE videos whether they are of HORRIBLE QUALITY or EXCELLENT, with no clear cut easy way to differentiate between what is GOOD and what is BAD before clicking on it, means MORE REVENUE FOR THEM!

They don't care about the video's content as long as it falls within their TOS, they don't care about the video's quality, or entertainment value, they don't care that we can't make informed decisions on what WE CHOOSE to watch, and users having the ability to avoid BAD videos, and the ability to easily find HIGH QUALITY ENTERTAINING videos, which the 5 star rating system provided users with. To me, like all CORPORATE GIANTS, these changes were all about THE BOTTOM LINE, MAXIMIZING REVENUE. The MORE CRAPPY VIDEOS WE UNKNOWINGLY WATCH, the MORE REVENUE they make.

Just think about it. How many videos did they have on their servers that with the old 5 star system would go unwatched, not clicked on, not generating revenue, simply because they had low ratings and USERS HAD THE ABILITY TO MAKE AN INFORMED CHOICE and AVOID THEM. We no longer have the ability to differentiate between the truly best and truly worst videos, but to them A VIDEO CLICKED AND WATCHED MEANS MORE $$$ FOR THEM, whether they are 1 star videos, or 5 star videos, it makes no difference to them. THE MORE VIDEOS WE CLICK ON, THE MORE REVENUE THEY MAKE. So I don't know about you guys, but to me it is quite clear that the change in the rating system was not about simplifying the voting system, but a whole different agenda altogether. I would love to have the 5 star rating system back, which aided me greatly in choosing what videos to watch, and which videos to avoid, but I for the reasons I have outlined in MY opinion, it's not gonna happen. Just know that not all of us are 'blind sheep'.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! jakelikestosmile 5/1/10 4:13 AM
@AnIntrestingDrug Although it's taking them a while - they have said they are going to be adding a percentage feature so you can preview how good the video is before you watch it.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! JustLearningGuitar 5/1/10 5:30 AM
@ Jakelikestosmile:
Reminding you on the point you made on 4/7/10 (April 7)!
It has been 3 weeks and NOTHING has been done by YT to keep their promise!
It only is getting worse all the time because if one bug is piled on another, codes get mixed and soon there is no end to all the problems.
Instead of that it would have been much easier for them to reconvert to the old lay-out but as stubborn as they are with YT they just won't do that and keep on messing up the site more and more!

Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Neilsil 5/1/10 6:23 AM
My long and well-thought-out letter to Youtube (and Google in general):

Dear Youtube,

I really like the new changes you've made. I especially like how it ruined the site I've known and loved for many, many years. Until this point, I had been telling myself that things might get better, that you might realize that your recent "improvements" might really just be mistakes. But after the new video player rolled out, I realized how ignorant you just might be.

I believe you've already seen the comments on your blog post about the new video page layout. I don't think they were all that positive, seeing as how I could only find one that said they liked the new layout. I checked the blog recently, and, what do you know, the post was gone.

You should also check out some of the hate videos and hate mail that you've been receiving. I can tell you now, they are not very pretty.

With the billions of pleadings and hate you're getting every day to change YouTube back to the way it was, you'd think that you'd at least give us a choice between which layout to choose. But no, you're just keeping the "improvements" coming, which do not cause your users to like you more, but causes them to leave. I bet you all of Bill Gates' money that at least ten thousand people have switched to DailyMotion because of this abominable change from a simple, lovable video website to a corporal behemoth getting worse by the day.

I know that you will probably end up banning me for this petty insolence against your "great" company, but this will have at least poured all my feelings out about this. And honestly, if you ban me, I might feel a little glad to be rid of this website called YouTube. 
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! JustLearningGuitar 5/1/10 7:20 AM

Way to go man!!!

@JustLearningGuitar Well yeah, I'll admit that Youtube are being slow about it - but changed are coming. I've seen a Shuffle feature on playlists, as requested, as well as other things.

@ Jakelikestosmile
 
It is NOT changes we need but a GOOD and PROPERLY working site!
The old lay-out was doing just fine... why fix something if it isn't broke?
And why going against the wish of so many thousands of users requesting the option of choise between the old and the new lay-out?
 
By doing what they did: messing up codes, they only made it harder to correct bugs and flaws.
To me it only shows how INCOMPETENT those YouTube designers are.
If they were my employees I would have sacked them a long time ago!!!
 
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! jakelikestosmile 5/1/10 11:12 AM
In answer to "Why fix something if it isn't broke", the answer is simply: To make it better.
I understand that you think they made it worse, but when they made the new layout - they did it with the intention of making it better. They didn't -want- to annoy people.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! ArmaFennica 5/1/10 2:01 PM
But youtube did not become better.
-By continuously defending the new layout, --with great vigor I might add--, makes me think that you are very much involved with it.

So, you could tell your buddies in the new youtube that people are not happy at all with their efforts.
-Fact to the matter, people are very angry on the new and highly unfunctional youtube.


Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! jakelikestosmile 5/1/10 5:06 PM
I am very much involved with Youtube - the Youtube community. And we wouldn't have this community if it weren't for all the people who designed and made Youtube. 

But
But by your logic, I'm: Gay because I continuously defend gay rights, am a member of the Democratic Party because I defend it, also work for Facebook because I liked it changes.

But in interesting point you raised. :)

at least give up an option to choose the new or old design  for fucks sake.. and not force your crap design on us
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Cadwalladee 5/3/10 4:53 PM
YouTube - I have been trying to use this video watch page and get used to it. My anger and frustration with YouTube is growing exponentially. If the stated goal is to focus on the video then why is the page like a minefield with irritant after irritant poping up all over the page??? Hidden crap popping into view when ever you move your mouse.
Your whole design is one very irritaing mess that is full of bugs and is extremely cumbersome to use.
The original design was far more static (predictable) and unobtrusive. The comments were far easier to read coherently.
This new format is one constantly shifting mess that requires hunting and searching for controls that are never in the same place - unless you don't use the page.
IT IS TIME TO FIX THE MESS YOU HAVE CREATED!!!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! blue03r6 5/3/10 5:15 PM
I agree the new layout is not user friendly, doesn't show half the info it used to about the video etc.  or the dates of the responses.
all around it's a terrible layout that looks like it's straight out of the dial up days in 1998.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! eniparxi 5/4/10 3:28 PM
I don't mind the changes that much BUT I honestly find the new rating system appalling. I consider it a major downgrade to the usability of the web site. You can no longer selectively choose a video from a looong list of search results because you can't see a clear rating. PLEASE.. PLEASE bring back the old rating system.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! slashcammas 5/7/10 3:35 AM
theres a bunch of black and white lines in the middle of the comments... thats annoying to read them
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Cadwalladee 5/7/10 8:32 PM
A quote from another user - don't know where he found it - does anybody else find this scary? Most of us already have television sets that stream content filled with commercials that our only recourse to is the "clicker". It sounds like YouTube is aiming for a similar format...
 
"Mr. Walk’s team meets weekly to discuss tweaks to YouTube’s software. During a recent meeting, a small group of engineers and user interface designers were brainstorming what might be the next big step in the site’s evolution: pages that would immediately begin playing a stream of clips tailored for a user, instead of offering lists of suggested videos. The idea is to push more videos at users in the hope of allowing them to abandon the keyboard and increasingly experience YouTube from the couch. "
 
"push more videos at users..." hmmm...
 
Think of this "new" watch page format as a first step at weaning people from interacting with each other...
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! mountedantman 5/8/10 7:20 PM
The biggest thing that gets me is that when you reply to a comment, the reply shows up at the front of the page and just says "mountedantman@exampleperson' and you cant see what the heck I, or anyone else replied to. I hate seeing something like "sunshine@earthman I I disagree with you" when u dont know what the heck he disagrees with. Then u have to go through to list of comments and use ctrl+F to find the author of the original post. Please bring back the old youtube!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! halit 5/8/10 10:16 PM
listen youtube the site has many glitches, there's a glitch that got my account banned. instead of making these POINTLESS UPDATES that over 90% of you users dont like why dont you focus on fixing the many, many glitches there are! or make a better system for appealing banned accounts. there is no way for me the recover the account i lost to your copyright glitch! and i know of over 20 other accounts lost to this glitch. youtube stop fixing the stuff that does work and just take one single little glance at what is broken!!!!!

The new youtube is so sad that it killed the legendary legacy of this revolutionary video community. Im pretty sure the youtube stocks will drop like hell if someone doesn't do something soon. It just like imagining Apple f**king everything up in their products. Scary as hell. 
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! FREDDIEKINGOFQUEEN 5/11/10 8:54 PM
How do you get rid of people whose sole purpose is to annoy, aggravate, and incite us on Queen videos? All of us flag his comments, to no avail. He just posts the same hateful nonsense back up again, and again, and again.....for days and weeks. I found him doing the exact thing to other bands too. The same hate spewing out like a volcano of trash!
What good is the flagging if it doesn't do anything to discourage the abuser?????? It seems it's a waste of time and effort on our part if you do nothing about the abuse or nothing to the abuser!
Why even bother having a flagging system that's useless and ineffective??
I think it's unfair to have to go through the steps day after day, week after week, with no results. Then they know they can do whatever and can't be stopped, if you do nothing.
YouTube should be a privilege, not a license to spew hate and homophobia. It's OFFENSIVE!!!
And now, we feel totally helpless.....And hopeless.....as it seems you are not willing to do your share and keep Your terms of agreement!
Please help!!!! Please get rid of Scottliveson1 from Queen and other videos!
It's not fair to good, decent people like us, who abide by the rules and try to do the right thing!

HELP!!!
     HELP!!!!!!
          HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! FREDDIEKINGOFQUEEN 5/11/10 10:09 PM
Please just do your job and get rid of the abusers that are flagged a million times! Otherwise, what's the sense in flagging anybody? If someone continues the abuse and hatred and homophobia for weeks on end, he should be banned from YT.....like you promise on your Terms Of Agreement.
This joker's name is Scottliveson1, not only on Queen sites, but lots of other videos......the same exact hate spewing like a volcano of trash!
When are you going to do something about all the requests to have this creep removed???
Why pretend to have a flagging system, when you do Nothing to discourage the abuser and it doesn't work? Why give us hope, only to dash it, by ignoring our pleadings?
Scottliveson1 has been leaving abusive, hateful, inciteful, rude, vulgar, offensive comments on Queen and other  videos, for weeks now. All his remarks are flagged and removed. Yet, they keep on coming! Undaunted, he just continues on doggedly to annoy, aggravate, and incite.
Why don't you DO something??? There should be a limit to how many removed and flagged remarks one can have without repercussions!
Please do something!!!
Oh, and btw, the new YouTube SUCKSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!
Don't our opinions/ preferences Matter to you????????
Do your job, Please and get rid of the crap!!! The crap that keeps abusing us on Queen and other videos, as well as this new layout, as he and it SUCK out loud!!! If you don't have enough staff to do your job, I am available!!! I can help you out. Call me!!!
Someone needs to figure this mess out! And, personally, I would listen to the people who actually Use it and know how they like it......So, call me!
Btw, I'm leaving this plea to get rid of Scottliveson1 from YT on here because it is Impossible to get a hold of you any other way. I've tried in vain to contact you about this matter! You have exasperated me beyond words......but, I guess that's your mission, judging by your lack of response to all disgruntled YT users!
You definitely need new staff!!! Your old one has led you astray with this idiotic new format that we all HATE!!!
Call me!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Enlighten3d 5/12/10 10:20 PM
Just my opinion, but I doubt Google is going to do anything about the beta version we all hate so much. 
 
It was a mistake for Google to take over YouTube... it's went downhill fast!  And the issue with "error" message while trying to leave comments is STILL not fixed.  A load of rubbish!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Abdul69 5/13/10 5:38 AM
Commenting has been taken to with a hunting knife and is now a bleeding useless mess. That was one of the best parts of the previous site design. Now it's terrible. I'm about to cancel my account (assuming that's possible without hitting 500 bugs).
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! sneakyguy99 5/13/10 6:04 AM
YT has DESTROYED the video page and especially the comment section.  I have uploaded over 200 videos to YT and respond to many comments.  There's no rhyme or reason to how the comments are placed on the page.  Often I respond with more than 500 characters meaning that I have several responses.  When I do this it becomes a real hodge podge on comments and replies being spread all over the video page.  I was an aerospace engineer at NASA so I guess I qualify for being a "rocket scientist."  Believe me this is NOT rocket science.  The engineers at YT are idiots and should be summarily fired.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! jasonresno 5/13/10 7:56 AM

Still doing everything to defend the "FailTube" ay jakelikestosmile?

I've visited that epic failure of Google-garbage every now and then (just now, listened the soundtrack of Kindom of Heaven), but the overall cluttered look and idiotic thumbs are still there. Mouse has no peace over "FailTube" and the comment section is still cut to ribbons.

Not much improvements after the clusterfuck, I'd say.

I read these posts by Liz (http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/youtube/thread?tid=2cb02bb37a5847e8&hl=en) and, basically, in HUMAN language it means - SUCK IT UP BITCHES, GET OVER IT. I PROMISE, YOU'LL LIKE IT IN THE END LOL. And the comment posting bug - it has been 45 days. Apparently, since it is not over 356 days yet, it still qualifies as "a few days". What can you expect from the behemoth company like this - we are not their major shareholders, so hwo gives a f... about us. Sounds like Wells Fargo or bank of America to me.

Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Cadwalladee 5/19/10 8:32 PM
I go out in the morning to get in my new YT Car. First I can't find where to put the key because the lock has been moved. Finally, I get in but I can't see out the windshield and I am directed to look through a tube to see the road. The steering wheel is gone, in it's place is an old joy stick. I get the engine going (the key doesn't work so I have to hot wire it) and I find out the the car won't budge - I check the brake (which has been moved into the back seat) and it seems ok, but the car won't go. On a whim, I get out and look at the tires - the one on the front passenger side is missing. Dismayed, I look in the trunk for the spare - thankfully there is one! But closer inspection reveals it will not fit the car. I find a roller skate and tie it to the axel to prop that side of the car up, go back, get in the car, and the viewing tube has been removed and I am now required to look through the side mirror to see where I'm going. Being late for work, I shove the thing in gear and off I go. I am unable to stop for the stop sign. This interests a policeman who starts following me with his siren blazing. I would like to stop, but there are no brakes. The policeman (I can see his face) is mad at me for not stopping. I am mad at my YT Car for not stopping. Soon, I crash into a tree and the car burns.

Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! speltips 6/14/10 10:41 AM
youtube just plain sucks now, its designed so that google can decide what videos that gets 'popular' e.g the amount of views you get now is only based on popularpage. Mainly this is so that they can cash out more money in ads and whatnot, but they dont give a shit about us users
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! mercedesbenzformula1 6/15/10 1:16 PM
Now, I don't mind Google updating the youtube layout every once and a while to make improvements, because it simply moves gets rid of bugs, adds more features, etc. and so forth. The youtube definetly has SOME improvements over the old but there are definetly some updates done with this new layout that HINDER the user's expierience with this new interface. One "update" that has simply incensed me is losing the ability to be able to choose for all videos to always be played back in high quality in the {account > video playback} section of youtube. That for me and many others is a major hinderence. There is one other suggestion that I would like to make to you: maybe you should consider trying to add MORE choice for the user (i.e. setting only the audio on high quality and the video on low quality and vice versa etc. etc. but if the user does not want to have to set something themselves, then make youtube do so automatically). Also I and many others are very annoyed about how our custom settings in our account always default back to automatic when we have personally changed them to our desired setting. Why does this occur? It seems to me that it would be an obviously annoying factor if we have selected a custom setting and even when using the same computer, it will go back to automatic. My suggestion is that you should retrieve the IP address of the computer it was set on and if it is different and the setting would likely hinder the user's expierience, then default the setting back to automatic. ElseIf, keep the user's settings the same. Don't here me wrong, I am not completely unhappy with the new youtube (i.e. I like the new rating system, and that scroll bars have been retracted from the list of related videos @ the right so you can see more videos without scrolling down the page, etc.) but I also believe many improvements can be made that would be beneficial to the vast majority of your users. Thank you for hearing my suggestions! 
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Haloce002 6/19/10 9:21 AM
I think the new Youtube is bogus and needs to be reverted back to the original.

I keep forgetting where the upload button is. In the old youtube, it stood out.
I'd like to be warned about these changes.

Google doesn't care about their users and that's the truth. Why change the look when people hate it? It's their opinion that matters and not ours that counts.

One more thing: Like and Dislike is the worst idea ever. Whoever thought of adding this to Youtube is less intelligent than an ant. Whoever did add this to Youtube by following the idea of the unintelligent ant is just some rich moron.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! markustoo 6/25/10 11:26 PM
I've got 20mbps on my connection and the videos still pause.  I don't know about you but I noticed since the change there's quite a lot more pausing.  If a Core2Duo 2.93 and latest browsers and that kind of speed, what's the problem Google?  It is only a matter of 'internet time' before someone starts seeking and making alternatives.  This kind of reminds me of the days when Microsoft bought place ware and 'enhanced it' with their code.  Performance suffered for close to 2 years while they got the learning curve thing down. 

I know migration is a tough thing, but the internet is unforgiving and fickle.  It may be just 'growing pains' as the business is gaining breadth in many directions.  MS had this problem as well.  But 'do no evil' means being deliberate about your business model and keeping true to your vision.  MS lost the vision thing long ago.

The 'beta' tag is evil.    Users are starting to see the underlying business model where google can use all the information we provide them to strongarm advertisers to their platform at their prices.  But the real issue is where they end up siding on the net neutrality debate and the recent changes, which look to me to be additional interface reporting metrics and not functionality improvements.  So we're paying 'taxes' on our use and as another user said - 'human petrie dish" which we understand.  But media use has an implied social contract.

I would humbly suggest that google adopt an 'advanced user' mode with different controls and go after different demographics with their changes as is.  It would help their stat collection and allow their demographic information more color, which is what they are trying to do with the interface changes.  
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Cadwalladee 6/27/10 8:26 PM

Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! KingKO123 7/11/10 12:25 AM
In my oppinion YouTube will crash and burn in this new form, where as if reverted to it's old format it may have a chance too pull up from it's nose dive into a landmine feild. All who are foolish enough to remain may  be caught in the twisted wreckage. even though they butchered my beloved YouTube I shall remain to see how this plays out.
If anyone from google ever reads this revert befor it is to late.

P.S. Notice google staff have not responded in hundereds of complaints- I mean coments.

Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! Cadwalladee 7/30/10 7:43 PM
YouTube Format and Mission Change - the latest!
 
Just in! After careful consideration of the high volume of user feedback we have received, (by popular demand), YouTube will NO LONGER BE ABOUT POSTING AND WATCHING VIDEOS! We are also removing any remaining shreds of community activities (watching, rating, commenting on, sharing, or otherwise interacting with videos).
 
Instead, because of the OVERWHELMING DEMAND by users, YouTube will, from here on out, be entirely about the YouTube interface, it's design, function, and look. The interface will change regularly and users will be given a short ammount of time to decipher its function.
As soon as this period is up (approximately one day) the next completely different interface design will appear for user deciphering.
 
We will call this new arrangement "LEANBACK II" or "SON of LEANBACK", and it's operation will be fully automatic, requiring minimal physical exertion by the user. (it is highly recommended that the user lie prone on a couch for this non-interaction)
 
The KEY to the success of this new program is the central tenant that NOTHING WILL ACTUALLY BE FUNCTIONAL. (Users will not be told this, of course,  and yet they will be asked to decipher the interface's function!)
 
GUYS! THIS WILL BE SO COOL! Stay tuned for more!
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! lianania 7/30/10 9:08 PM
I cannot find dates of uploads easy. The cursor will not show it, the thumbnaildoes not show it, not even a display of the next video shows it. To know the date I have to open the video. In some countries this costs more money but for me it takes TIME, a lot of tiem. For example, I wanted to learn about the LHC Geneva experiment and its results but I kept opening increasingly older videos. Why? No date info.
 
thank you
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! dpsamu2000 7/31/10 1:51 AM
99.999% of all youtube users don't comment or upload. This is just another video game for them. It has to get more difficult or they lose interest. That's why so many "new" versions of programs are worse than classic ones. Of course youtube doesn't care about content producers. They don't care if producers never upload again (a producer's strike won't work). They already have enough free content to keep the video morons watching for decades. Or at least until some new video game diverts their interest. The solution is to start an email chain letter to get viewers to stop watching youtube. A viewer's strike!!! In solidarity with youtube producers.Tell all of your friends to stop watching and get them to tell their friends and their friends etc. 
 
Moving to another site is an option but it could just as easily get big and greedy, sell ut to a big corporation and then we're back to where we started with years lost. Things can happen quickly on the net. We elected Obama right? But only if these things are handled properly, with solidarity.  
 
Email your friends. Call for a viewer strike!!!  
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! kuchumovn 8/2/10 8:46 PM
After the new YouTube profile interface the last year I left it.
Now I'm back.
But, then I'm gonna say something about this interface, and the whole Google interface too.
So.
The new YouTube profile layout is a DISASTER.
It's absolutely AWFUL.
I'm a web 2.0 developer, and I say you as a professional - your GWT ABSOLUTELY SUCKS, and your AJAXed profile without REST links ABSOLUTELY SUCKS, and, by the way, your Google interface is AWFUL too, you have eventually changed the logo though, but look, the men, who are in charge of deciding, how the new interface is gonna look, are LAME and DUMMY.
The new Google options column to the left is also AWFUL.
Guys, I guess, your best times have gone now, and you are slowly turning into another Corporation of Crap, like another Micro$oft.
Good luck.

By the way, I'm currently on Chrome, and after pushing BackSpace key to erase a typo in this textArea, I'm being navigated to the previous page, destroying all my post data.
FareWell, Google.
You are now a Huge Awkward Undead Dinosaur.

*Oh yeah, and adding comments on YouTube is DUMB and is absolutely a SHAME ON YOU, all you Ph.Ds and whatever else.
Re: THE NEW YOUTUBE SUCKS!!!!!!!! anonymous72 8/3/10 3:14 PM
Liz,

So sad that you guys only respond with it's now 100% live and here is a link so you CAN LEARN HOW TO USE the new YouTube. Are you insane? How many hours in my day should I set aside learning about your consistently bad choices in design? I don't have that kind of time, and no, I don't spend my days (taking care of the house, running after toddlers, working part-time, cooking, shopping, etc.) reading your Blogs to see what's new.

Frankly, your attitude (and Google and Facebook too) is what drives customers away.

EVERYONE, Check out Megavideo. Yes, you pay, but you get what you pay for and have more choice because you are paying for a service. Let's see...spend hours learning how to use something that used to work fine or just clicking on a new link for a service that works without explanation?

I suggest you guys start listening to your customers. Or do what you want! I don't plan to stick around to see if you listen. Eventually, you won't have us around to complain because we will be using another service!
