I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE FIVE STARS STILL! Still have the like/dislike system, but have it as a five star rating. for exampleone user (likes)***** 1 ratingone user (dislikes)**1/2 2 ratingsetc.
I love the new layout but I don't like automatically adding a video to my favorites if I like it.

To be blunt, this new rating system is stupid and downright annoying, which is saying something considering I only used it for two minutes before hastily reverting back to the old one.Firstly, I don't know what made you think that it would be a good idea to make videos add themselves to our favourites when we "like" them. Very rarely do I add videos to my favourites, but I rate videos 4/5 stars all the time. It was no problem in the old system, it's a pain in the ass with this new one; I can't even begin to think of reasons why you'd want to create problems for your users.Secondly, a binary rating system is much, much harder to read than an average of 5 stars. Which do you find easier to read:"153 likes / 29 dislikes"or"4.5 stars"Not to mention that since people focus more on negative feedback, positive feedback won't mean as much if those 29 dislikes are shown right next to it. Even if you stick with a binary rating system, and average score is a MUST.Thirdly, you make a gross generalisation when you say 1 and 5 star ratings were the only ones ever used. It's simply not true... for me anyway.PLEASE, I can't stress enough how stupid this new system is. I haven't even studied User Interfaces and I know this one is bad, so that's saying something. It's annoying, intrusive, confusing, hard to read, and simply dumb. The new layout is okay (it looks a little dull), but redesigning how rating works is a big mistake.
The new system is interesting, though I don't like it on a number of levels.My biggest complaint is that the page is too white and has a lot less single-pixel line seperators between page elements in comparison with the old page. The old page uses much better dividing and shading of elements. There's just way too much white on the page.While the rating system makes sense, I still like seeing an average score for quick-reference. The amount of likes versus dislikes as a scoring system just doesn't work as well as the stars.I'm interested in stats as well, so I'm disappointed to see that there's no rating score or comment score anymroe.I also don't like how the the description is squished under the video. The comments don't fully make up the space they're given, so that's bad too. The user information is also quite easy to miss as well.I don't hate the new layout, it just needs to be improved. The layout, shading and element division should all be part of the improvements, as well as bringing the voting scores back.
It's pretty niffty to look at but there are afew nitpicks that I had.For one the comment section should be wider so that the right side separating line can be near "next videos" list and so the comments take up the space given th them.As for the ratings I can put up with the new one (even though I prefer the old one) but I don't like the idea of favouriting everything you like.Theres afew glitches like when you open and close the "views box" the world map remains on the page but it is a beta so....I'll close with my biggest gripe which is that to read the description you have to scroll down and stop watching the video when in the old format you could look at the description and video at the same time.
Not a fan of the new system at all. Some things don't require change, youtube's layout is a staple. Over the years youtube has changed things very minutely over time, this is just too much all in one gulp.
I really like the search and watch at the same time feature. I'm definitely going to rate videos a lot less now that it automatically favourites it once you like it. But that's no biggie. One issue I do agree with is that you have to scroll down to read the description. I think the old layout for that was better, which compromised nicely with the contents of the description and More Videos.
How in gods name do I stop all of my search results auto-playing or all of my recommended/subscribed videos autoplaying one after the other?Seriously, I cannot see any button, option or anything. And I can't opt out either. I hate the new layout, but this autoplaying just throws it way over the top. I can't stand youtube now.
Hi there Software Engineers.I have discovered a bug in the Beta page that seems to only effect Internet Explorer 8 users.The problem is that videos are loading twice simultaneously. I noticed that videos were loading slower in the Beta page, so I opened up my firewall to see what was going on. There I could clearly see that there were TWO seperate streams downloading at the same time - cutting my bandwidth in half. So I killed one of the streams to see what would happen. The video kept loading properly and started to load faster.I then went back to the "OLD YOUTUBE" and played the same video as a comparison - one stream only at full download speed shows.I did this same experiment in Google & Safari, and they appear not to be affected.When you intially pick a video to play in Beta using IE8, there is a very fast double flash/click of the screen - like the page is loading one on top of another.I have made a video demonstrating this problem.Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRbJNh6cAroIf someone official from YT/Google actually reads my feedback for this, I would very much appreciate a small message been returned to me acknowledging that you are aware of this problem I have found.Peace be with you,Dex :)
The video responses seem lost for normal viewers. Is that true or I am the only one who can not see them. I mean, you can still submit a video response but seems only visible to the owner of the video. I liked the way it was where all viewers could see them :)
its retarded, i hate it
I really Dislike the New Layout, The only Thing I like is the Top where you Username, and the search bar are. If it is kept this way, I think we should still have the Rate system of 1,2,3,4,5 Stars. Thanks.
