Youtube’s New Video Player UI – Bolder, Smoother and Sexier
From an unofficial source, it has been verified that YouTube is ready to launch a new user interface of its native video player. The new video player is more beautiful and perfectly matches Google’s so called material design.
The new player looks more eye pleasing and is similar to many video players available for Android Mobile platform. The control and navigation bar disappears while it is not being used (triggered on user’s mouse hover), very similar to MX Player skin (Android) and VLC Media Player (Windows)
