Google improves the YouTube player
Operators of YouTube recently moved into a highly successful lifting of the player we all know. With regard to infrastructure have not changed much, but the aesthetics and functionality of the new player has improved considerably. The first major change has to do with the bar timeline, which almost disappears a few seconds after the start of the video.
In this way, the user focuses on itself video content and does not distract the regional data. In this context, the bar for volume that appears when you pass the mouse over it now opens horizontally at the bottom of the player rather than upwards.
These changes are only a few weeks after the sweeping changes introduced in the pages of YouTube videos. Among other things, responsible for the service broke the scoring system with five stars and replaced them with simple thumbs-up and thumbs-down.
This change is phased in at all the videos and the process will be completed very soon.
