YouTube’s New Desktop Player, Available for Everyone

After a few months of testing, the new desktop player for YouTube replaces the old one. The new HTML5 video player uses a transparent control bar that hides when you’re not using it and has new buttons and dropdown menus.

“Our new player design has a bit more polish, gets out of the way of your video playback, and scales to any screen or embed size,” informs YouTube. The TestTube page no longer lets you switch back to the old player and it only shows this message: “This browser is using the new YouTube player”.
