OH GOD, YOUTUBE, WHYYYY!!!

Post  MC Dirty on Fri Dec 02, 2011 6:28 pm

Okay, so I know I can't be the only one who really can't stand the new Youtube homepage layout. I wonder what everyone's opinion on that is or, rather, if anyone actually likes it.

In all honesty, the main reason I made this thread is to tell you that there is a way to go back to the old layout (for now, at least). Yes, I know, it's not exactly the same as the old layout, but it's still much better than the new one.
Just change the address from
Code:
http://www.youtube.com/
to
Code:
http://www.youtube.com/home
You shall be taken back to better times!

I.. can't say I particularly hate it. I think I only noticed it's changed once I actually stopped to look around after a similar post over at GitP. I don't normally spend enough time there to so much as notice a difference. Links still take me to videos, there are still related videos on the right side, the search bar is still up top, comments are still down there, etc, etc. Cosmetic differences and other nuances don't bother me in the slightest.

edit: If you mean just the homepage, I don't believe I ever used any part of it except the search bar, so the switch sailed past my head completely unnoticed.

Well, I actually do like the layout change on the video player page.
However, the homepage is absolutely cluttered. I want to have a clear view of what everyone I'm subscribed to has uploaded recently. Now, I only see one bloody video each! That is especially jarring with some Let's Players who rarely upload anything, but if they do, they upload three or more videos at once.
Furthermore, the column on the left shows 10 people that I'm subscribed to; 20 if I click on "more". However, these are in alphabetical order which makes absolutely no sense. In my opinion, it should be in order of who has most recently uploaded something. I'm subscribed to 194 channels, just seeing the first 20 of them doesn't help at all. Oh, sure, I can choose the first ten that are displayed, but that's still only a small part of all the channels I'm subscribed to.
Not only that, but a huge part of the homepage isn't used at all. Even on 4:3, there's so much wasted space. Not to mention that the entire right column is absolutely useless. If I want to see recommended videos, I would click on "Recommendations" in the old layout (which also displays many more videos). On the "standard" homepage, they are just wasted space.

Edit: Oh, it seems they just added in an "+X more videos" thing to click under the uploader's most recent video shown on the homepage. Well, at least something! I still think the pictures are way too huge.

I'll admit, the new layout was quite a bit of a shocking yank; however, although it's different, I have to say it is at least functional. I mean, I personally would love for them to go back to the old layout (because why go about fixing things that you haven't broken yet?), but if they'll decide to chuck the old and bring in the new, I can't really blame them. Hopefully the feedback they receive on the new UI of Youtube will set the record straight; and as it's one of the most trafficked sites on the web, I'm pretty sure they'll get a veritable landslide of it.

Especially from the ragers. :3

I never use the homepage, apart from the search bar, as pretty much every channel I follow is in my favorites.

Every time I see the new youtube, I cry tears of lead.

Then I see youtube asking me, every time I sign in, DO YOU LIEK THE NEW LAYOUT.

And I realise.

I was pissed off with ads before it was cool. Seriously they have been everywhere since 2007 D:

I never go to the homepage. Most if not all my visits to youtube are from links and clicking other 'related' videos.

I honestly don't see the problem from my perspective, except for the new-ish in video ads.

Someone should really do a FF plugin that replaces everything except the video file itself with something plain.

Because after wading through an hours worth of advertisements, youtube doesn't just crash and send you to a page where a top team of monkeys is trolling you

I was just about to go all "OH GOD YOUTUBE Y U SO BAD!" when I noticed they changed the homepage once again. But actually, it's not that bad. Still not as good as the one before the last one, but definitely an improvement over the one I've already complained enough about. The thumbnails are now much smaller and the user avatars aren't in such an awkward position anymore.
