Though an official announcement hasn’t been made by either Youtube or their parent company Google, the video sharing site has started to roll out a new design for its video player today.
Following this month’s earlier redesign which overhauled the overall look of the page, today’s new refresh concerns just the video player. The controls have been redone for a much lighter glossy finish and the volume adjuster moved to the left. The player now also automatically dims itself when the mouse is inactive.
Though all videos are not sporting the new design, videos from our Neowin Youtube channel do seem to have been graced with the new player. Give it a shot for yourself!
