Homepage design update 4/22/13: Video rows in What to Watch ytKeane 4/23/13 3:25 PM
Hi everyone,

Yesterday we launched a change on the homepage designed to display more videos on the What to Watch feed and make it easier for you to browse more videos at once.

Rather than one video per channel, you will now get to see more uploads on a single row of the homepage. It looks like this:

Keep in mind that this only appears on the What to Watch feed, so you won't see it on My Subscriptions. 

Let us know what you think! Check out the Creator Blog for more info: youtubecreator.blogspot.com/2013/04/coming-soon-more-videos-in-homepage-feed.html

You clowns at GoogleTube sure know how to Piss Off your Users with a layout that sucks more than the last one.

With this change, the homepage became absolutely completely useless for me. Before it was almost useless!
 
All I see now is a lot of videos that I'm not interested in watching.

Now all I see are videos that I've already watched. 'What to Watch' should new videos from channels I'm not subscribed to, not a mashup of the exact same thing the 'My Subscriptions' shows me. I now don't see any videos from any channel I'm not subbed to. The home page is now useless to me. The /My_Subscriptions page is great, shows me everything I haven't seen in a neat box & when I've watched it, it disappears. What to Watch should be new, trending & related videos that I haven't seen from channels I'm NOT subbed to. Why have 3 pages show you the same thing? What's next, getting rid of the semi-useless "related" videos next to the player?

When I reached to "add channel design" window I click on the button, then see window with "Enter" button. I'm clicking on it, new window appears and close at once. Nothing happens then and that's all. What must i do to fix this?
Re: Homepage design update 4/22/13: Video rows in What to Watch Canovals 4/27/13 11:45 AM
solution, be patient.  happened to me yesterday morning - got "this feature is not available right now."  that went on for most of the day.  Finally yesterday afternoon late it suddenly worked.

My 'What to Watch' module for subscribers to my Channel has disappeared.

Im using Youtube One layout, however, being new, i was looking for how to change the background colour and came to an answer that said go directly to the youtube/channel settings page. I did this and changed my tabs to 'Video' and then back to 'featured'. I also changed the template for the featured layout.

I later learnt that those channel settings were for the old youtube account, not the new youtube one layout. However the changes i made , like visitors to see videos instead of featured tab, took effect on my youtube one channel. That's why i went back to the channel settings address and changed the option back to the 'featured' tab.

Since then both the 'what to watch' module and the 'recent activity' to the right of 'what to watch' have disappeared from my channel.

I do have browse enabled but the what to watch still does not appear.

How do i get them back? Thank you

There is no point! I get recommended videos that i have already watched, not interested in watching, or MY OWN VIDEOS! Please get rid of "what to watch"

I actually like this marginally better than the last. Although now that I think of it what the hell is the point of recommending videos I've already seen by people I'm already subscribed to? Nice one.

My question is why you can't put MY SUBSCRIPTIONS AS DEFAULT! My god, you know everyone wants it but you absolutely to refuse to for some obscure reason.

I am not sure how you decide what videos show up on "what to watch" feed, but I am getting adult videos on it as recommended videos with the thumbnail showing women's upper parts (some russian video uploader is somehow promoting his video). I was able to fix this on my laptop, but can't fix it on my TV and tablet which my kid watches. Shame on you Google!!

So, yeah, I have the same issues as most of the people talking here. The "What to Watch" page shows me 3 years old videos from channels I'm subscribed to. Videos that I have already watched at least one time. Also it would be great if it could keep track of videos that I view and don't suggest them anymore. Only show them up if I search for them.

Still cant delete a video from the feeds this used to be a useful feature back in the days when the frontpage was useful.  Still dont have a clue on how to centre a design.  Still a poorly designed page I am sticking to my_subscriptions as the page that still sort of work.

Remove all updates to YouTube and confirm restore to Original YouTube that shipped with your device, also uncheck Notifications, to stop Updates from being Automatically  re-applied!

I can't read some of the labels because its light gray on red, etc. What's up?  I can't find favorites either? Nor can I label a video as a favorite.  Frustrated.

To be honest, I don't like the new channel design once I accidentally upgraded it. Is there any way to get my old channel back? I want my newsfeed posts back in my channel :(

Here is the announcement that says all channels will be changed to the new design on June 5th.

i recommend you ditch the new design and revert back to the previous version. no one likes it its even more disfunctional than the last one

I cannot agree more!
Re: Homepage design update 4/22/13: Video rows in What to Watch Erica Link 5/23/13 11:58 AM

So now its permanent?  Before people could switch back I thought.  

What total crap. Google/YouTube is becoming more like Facebook with its forced changes every day.

This is bullshit.  No one but a minority likes this.  Why can't they listen to the users for once in their pathetic lives? 
Re: Homepage design update 4/22/13: Video rows in What to Watch sirtokesalot 5/25/13 3:54 AM
this just means i will no longer go to my youtube channel instead i will change the link in my favorites bar to lead to the supscriptions page in youtube thus bypassing the useless channel.
Re: Homepage design update 4/22/13: Video rows in What to Watch Canovals 5/25/13 4:17 AM
I like the new YouTube.  May take some getting used to, but this is far more functional than it ever was.

This new layout is stupid. First, there are is no X, by the video, so I can romeve something that I do not like. Even there is a video from someon in my G+ firends that shared a video and I cannot remove it.

Youtube experience sucks, because of that.

Put it back!

I still want an option to default to "My subscriptions" when viewing the home page instead of "What to watch".  Why that STILL isn't an option is beyond me...
Re: Homepage design update 4/22/13: Video rows in What to Watch sirtokesalot 5/29/13 4:43 AM
u want to do a major upgrade to the site and make it more user friendly? dig up the version of the site from 2007 and put it back into use.
