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.

Thats pretty good like that but for videos without 1080p then you're back to the misalignment!

It doesn't, actually. The video size stays the same, even with 240p videos - it's a multi-functional extension. :)

The new look is clean, but it does waste a lot of space as mentioned. Google should give users the ability to customize the page as they see fit and make use of all that space.

See on the botom right of the page, there is a button "feedback".
everyone please click it and tell google we hate the new youtube!

also, I use magic actions and set videos to auto wide but its not working for me any more with this update.
I mean it works but then the vid goes small again

Working now!

edit: I will add that YouTube is way faster for me now :) I mean page load/latency

When I first saw this I thought it was an issue with the latest chrome dev build, but no. This left alignment is driving me absolutely nuts, at least center the freakin thing.

Looks flat and Metro on IE 10 only. Still looks like the previous design on Chrome. Wonder if it's supposed to do that...

EDIT: Here's a pic, BTW:


Looks flat on chrome for me. They always tend to roll these out progressively using cookies, so on one computer or browser you may see it already, on others not. Nothing to do with what browser you use.

Yeah so after using it for a few hours I've never been more frustrated using youtube than with this new layout. It just makes navigating so tedious and un fun.

I like it, but it's weird that it's not centered, then again it matches up with Google search etc.

Is the update to cater for the increased number of mobile/phone users with small screens?

Don't see why it would be, they have an app that comes pre-loaded with just about every single portable device.

At least the videos are centred. Its just the browse page that isn't. Easily sorted with Stylish if you really wanted to.

I have Magic actions set to auto-wide videos so what really annoys me is this:

It looks better but feels a bit weird being off centre

Tried to send feedback but it just keeps making me sign in, which I already am

I'm not a fan of the white empty space. I just hope to hell they keep the black bezel for the video box.
