Where's the pop-out button? YouTube Roscoe 4/13/11 6:03 PM
Hi everyone,

Notice something different on the YouTube player? On April 13, 2011, the pop-out button in the bottom right-hand corner will disappear as we continue to streamline and simplify the experience of watching videos on YouTube.

Are you a pop-out devotee? Simply right-click anywhere on the player, then click 'Pop out'-- it works just the same.

Happy surfing,
Roscoe

Thanks roscoe,

I dont think this has improved simplicity though.

Lots of people will have no idea to right click it to find this. For example I still have users i support that in word dont either press control and C or right click and copy, they use the copy off the Ribbon... Crazy

But thanks for update regardless, at least this will be found helpful to those who use the forum

Regards
Nathan

Bad idea when you have not informed people about this change.

Thanks, without it I cannot watch videos in fullscreen (damn ATI/Flash incompatability causes a bluescreen for me *sadface*).
Re: Where's the pop-out button? Zuriki 4/16/11 12:19 PM
Actually, no thanks, this doesn't work. There is no right click option!?
Re: Where's the pop-out button? jankozlowski 4/17/11 6:35 AM
I don't see this option. When I right click on a video, I see these two options:

Save Video As... (goes to Rick Astley, funny)
About HTML5

I miss pop out!
Re: Where's the pop-out button? YouTube Roscoe 4/18/11 9:01 AM
@jankozlowski-- this is because you've opted into the HTML5 Video Player. Visit http://www.youtube.com/html5 and click 'Leave the trial'-- right-clicking should then work normally.

@Zuriki-- what do you mean when you say there's not right click option? Does the menu not appear at all, or do you not see 'Pop out' in the menu?

I'm sorry, but this is just stupid! I consider myself reasonably tech savvy, but I would never have worked out what to do if I hadn't found this thread, as right-clicking in a web application is completely unintuitive. At the very least—if it really must be relegated to a context menu—the menu it's on should be made available from a button on the status bar; although I would personally prefer to see the pop-out button put back on the status bar where it properly belongs. :-(

Why did you specicically remove that button? (I only used it once but still)
It is quite tedious right clicking on the video and choosing to pop out whereas you could use a simple button..

Yeah, this should really just stay as a button. It's a major feature that needs to be prominent and obvious. Please stop "fixing" what isn't broken.

The pop-up option can't be find in rightclick menu of any video now. What happened?
Re: Where's the pop-out button? tet5uo 6/7/11 12:53 PM
Yeah, no more popup even in the right-click context options anymore... what gives?
Re: Where's the pop-out button? YouTube Roscoe 6/7/11 2:55 PM
Hmm, I'm not able to reproduce this. What browsers are you using? Mac or PC?

Thanks,

Firefox 4.0.1 on Windows 7
Re: Where's the pop-out button? tet5uo 6/8/11 7:27 AM
Here's all I see when I right-click, just the standard flash menu.

Interestingly, it still works fine on my desktop PC now that I'm home and checking on that... but my laptop has the issue above.
Re: Where's the pop-out button? tet5uo 6/11/11 10:00 AM
Oh, the laptop is also running the same Firefox version and windows as my desktop. Maybe it needs flash updated? I'll give it a shot. I miss popping out vids :(
Re: Where's the pop-out button? YouTube Roscoe 6/13/11 3:06 PM
Perhaps there's something in your Flash permissions settings that's keeping the standard YouTube menu from coming up?
Re: Where's the pop-out button? tet5uo 6/13/11 3:10 PM
They look to be set to the same thing on both PC's. Not sure now.

Re: Where's the pop-out button? three03 6/17/11 10:34 AM
Roscoe,

I'm seeing playback/bandwidth issues when using the popout and anything higher than 360p.  If I watch a 1080p/720p video in the regular window you can see the video download quickly.  Chrome's "Show Video Info" shows bandwidth near my max of 12-16mb/sec. 

If I right-click, select popout, then change the popout video to 720p the video loads slowly, skips every 10-15 seconds.  The "Show Video Info" shows speeds never exceeding 3000kbps.

I can reproduce this with numerous videos.
