Who in this day and age actually browses with the browser full screen? At first I didn't "get it" till I maximized my browser, then I saw it, but I never maximize my browser so it's not a real issue

Is it only for Chrome ? When I hit install it just opens a new page with the script code displayed

EDIT - NM, I just read the how to :p

download it and paste it into a plugin like stylish if its not working for you the way it is. I wouldn't bother personally but as I said before in the thread, it'd be easily done.

One thing I do love about the new layout is that playlists are now built into the video player. I hated the old playlist HUGE bar at the bottom, the video would start playing, you'd get the scroll at the right place then the stupid playlist bar would pop up and scroll the screen. It was also far too big.

I'm actually liking the new design TBH, just don't get the off centre thing.

if you're on firefox you need to install the greasemonkey add-on

Thanks, I installed GreaseMonkey and all is aligned centrally again :)

here's a userscript to center the new layout http://userscripts.o...pts/show/153606

Is there a version for stylish? That doesn't seem to work with it. The 2 scripts on userstyles.org that I found don't seem to work either.

For anyone who liked uploads only, this is the direct link to it: https://www.youtube.com/feed/subscriptions/u

I have youtube in my bookmarks bar, so I changed the bookmark from the homepage to that^

Now when I click it, i go straight to uploads :)

Thanks for both!

I'm aware of that and I was asking if you were aware of a version that works with stylish.

In any case Guth seems to be on the job. (Y)

there is no greasemonkey for chrome AFAIK ?

thats why I installed stylish when i was looking for greasemonkey a while ago.

Problem is, stylish uses CSS but greasemonkey can run javascript.

Youtubes body has a class of "site-left-aligned" but if you change that to site-centre-aligned it does centre. However, you need javascript to replace the class.

Im going to try just edit the site-left-aligned class with stylish and see if i can get it to centre.

I use Magic Actions to increase the width of videos and have them default to 1080p:

The homepage is still incredibly inefficient in terms of utilising screen space but that's unfortunately true of so many websites.

That video is not even centered on your screen, lmao.

Heres my centre youtube script for stylish

Click the stylish button > Managed installed Styles > Write New Style

Paste this into the code box:


/*Centre Youtube by Guth */

#yt-masthead-container {

	margin: 0 auto;

}

#page-container {

	margin: 0 auto;

	width: 1100px;

}

Then next to "Applies to" click Specify > "URLs on the domain" and enter youtube.com

click save and you're done. Hopefully with a centred YouTube :)

I've tested this on both my monitors (1280x1024 and 1366x768) and it works fine with me.

I use http://www.youtube.c...y_subscriptions

It's a lot tighter than the list view in the link you gave.

IT has a console you could paste those scripts, but you'd have to do it each time.

I tried clicking install without greasemonkey on that site you linked and it told me I could not install userscripts from that site.

I use http://www.youtube.c...y_subscriptions

nice! thats even better :) thanks

oh yeah, chrome changed that recently, they only allow direct installation of extensions from the chrome web store

to install extensions from other sites you have to right click and save the extension to a folder then goto "chrome menu > tools > extensions" and drag the extension from the folder into chrome and then it will install

they changed this a few months ago for added "security"

Thanks, works for Chrome but not for Firefox, oddly. Stylish for firefox does not have that "Applies to" feature that I can find.

Yeah I dont use FF so made that on chrome. Someone posted a greasemonkey one for FF.

It should still work without the applies to bit.

Although if any other site you use has those exact class names it may break them lol. Unlikely though.

If you are on FF the greasemonkey script is better as it can use javascript and actually replace the left with centered class which is actually in the CSS from youtube themselves, so that would work better. Just made the stylish one as there is no greasemonkey for FF.

Alternatively you could download the FF grasemonkey script and paste it into chromes console, but you'd have to do that every time you visited youtube.

to install extensions from other sites you have to right click and save the extension to a folder then goto "chrome menu > tools > extensions" and drag the extension from the folder into chrome and then it will install

Yep I knew that for extensions, but never heard of installing scripts? Only in the console as I mentioned earlier.

no, it's the same for installing scripts from userscripts.org, just drag the script into the extensions window and it installs

not sure why you would do it through the console, because as you said, if you do it that way you have to apply it every time

edit: scripts install just like extensions in chrome

Firstly, the new design is aligned to the left. Secondly, I don't use my browser maximised because of the wasted space. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like when I do:

And here is Pinterest for comparison:

youtube options note that you will have to re-enable most of the UI elements after installing becuase it whites out the stuff that's not related to the video like comments, etc...
