2. Press Ctrl + Shift and J in Chrome to open the Developer Tools
Press Ctrl+Shift+K in Firefox
3. Click on the "Console" Tab and enter
document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=ST1Ti53r4fU";
4. Reload the website and enjoy the new layout.

Thank you; I've been looking for a clear, concise set of instructions for this. Good looking out to you and +Moritz Tolxdorff!
 
I don't have a "Console" tab?

EDIT: Oh, the console is that big block of text on the bottom of the window, gotcha ;) Thanks for the tip!
 
I like the new design so far. Still playing with it.
 
NOOONOONO >.< and i who liked the old design :(
 
It is awful, as someone who produces content, give me the old one back.
 
Just did it and I like the new layout. Thanks!
 
I have had the new design on one of my computers for over a week at home and couldn't figure it out. Thanks for the tip!
 
I guess it looks somewhat better but the functionality isn't there for me. It only shows a few of my subscriptions, it would be nice if I could group them somehow. It would be also nice to be able to remove the watched videos easily. Also stop suggesting channels I'm already subscribed to, FFS!
 
I'll try it, but I don't think it'll change my life =)
 
i dn't like it. simply b/c i can't remove vids i've already watched
 
A lot of wasted space and I'd like more freedom in organizing the main view. When you have dozens of channels to follow, this just doesn't do it for me.
 
people like it... maybe i should give it a try before they force it on me :/..?
 
With the new layout, even more than the old layout, it's all about how fast I can click on my name and select Subscriptions for the only useful display Youtube provides.

wooooooooo nice step
arek b
 
Great look. it reminds me a little bit FB
 
It's not too bad. I like the fast access to subscriptions and to Google+ shares. The only thing missing is the Google Grey Bar from the top of G+. I love using that to quickly scroll back to the top of the page.

Is there any way downgrade back to the old version, though?
 
Have a bunch of vowels guys.. AEIOUOUAUIAEEAOIOUUAEAAEA
 
Does this work on Mac?
 
Okay.. this is great BUT I just want to see UPLOADS I do NOT want to see every f-ing thing someone likes or favorites!!!!

GRRRRR...
 
I like it, but i'd like to have the ability to turn it off, how can I do that?
 
The address bar thing didn't work for me but typing document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=ST1Ti53r4fU"; into the javascript console did the trick.
 
having issues. not that important but thanks for the comments
 
Here is WHAT I DON'T WANT. 200 hundred people telling me to update You Tube
 
+Eric Levi "Here is WHAT I DON'T WANT. 200 hundred people telling me to update You Tube"
don't want help trying to figure it out? then don't fucking put on the feed that you are having trouble getting it working moron. Nobody is telling you to update, you're the dickhole who was obviously trying to update it and couldn't from some internal problem with your brain, and others were just trying to help. Keep your yap shut next time and you won't have a problem.
 
so the social network style steadily takes over teh internetz...
 
Only thing I don't like is I'd prefer to JUST see my Subscriptions uploads on the main page, not their comments and favorites and everything. Is this an option?
 
Much better than Google's other redesigns. Awesome.
 
I personally like cosmic panda better.
 
It worked great, thanks!
 
Are u the one who played in ummm the parent trap
 
I like the new design.. but my little subscriptions stream is nothing but what everyone liked/favorited. Is there any way to disable that? Thats really the only thing stopping me from using it.
 
I like the new layout! Never thought I'd utter those words after all the Failbook layout changes...
 
not sure what im doing wrong but i cant get it to work..
 
Looks much cleaner, almost google'esk
 
So far not liking it. Everyone seems to be in this mode where creating pages that scroll for days is cool again for some ungodly reason.

Also, it's specifically not obeying my subscription settings and showing me videos liked by people set to only show their uploads (and after setting this on another channel, their likes started showing up as well)

Youtube has had enough crappy issues lately, I sincerely hope they improve things and don't just give it a face lift. Fortunately I have faith in google to do it right.
 
I always thought youtube's interface was horrible: almost anything would be an improvement.

pretty minor overhaul. but at least it shows movement.

Went to go try this only to discover I was already given the new youtube layout. I like it a lot, much better than the gmail or reader reboots.
 
YOUTUBE MRYOUNGBANKS CANDYPAINT MUSIC ENT.. RUBBERBAND BANKS
 
Hmm, so if you don't like it, how do you get rid of it?
 
I had to remove the comma at the end of the javascript code to make it work
 
I was wrong the key is to press ENTER after entering the code.
 
Did this screw up anyone else's igoogle page? Now, gadgets and themes won't load.
 
Will it make the posters more intelligent?
 
Sure wish it would use all my screen real estate. I'm tired of all these websites keeping me stuck in the middle third of my screen. Scroll, scroll, scroll. Also, can't delete my subscriptions after adding them to my watch list so I have to try to keep track of where I left off.

I'm not complaining because of change, there's a lot of good on the page. But it looks like it's going to be a bit harder for me to get through my subscriptions without missing something and I was already missing things.
 
My biggest complaint about sites and apps is, what if I do not want you linked to social media? Give me a clear opt out option and stop showing/asking for it!!
 
a little slow between page transitions, but absolutely amazing!
 
Yesterday I didn't like it because of my stream being spammed with nothing but likes/favorites. Today, they fixed it.. and it looks awesome!

What I love most is that the categories seem like they might be more useful now. Film & Animation before basically had absolutely no film or animation.. spammed with trailers and vlog questionaires. Now theres an entire animation category.. WITH animations! I look at the Howto category and I don't see the makeup tutorials that completely overtook it. Get ExpertVillage off of there and it would be perfect. lol

As far as I can tell, this is a good change.
 
Oddly enough looks more like a 'My Space' page now.
 
@Thomas Horn You say that like it's a bad thing ... oh, right.
 
Thank you. Now my friends will think Im Awesome and Nerdy. But still keepin it Gangsta. :)
 
just by looking at the picture above it looks like they are trying to imitate facebook. I guess if something works, dont change it, and better yet, copy it and make it your own. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
 
Works! :) And somehow it browsers faster also! Really cool :)
 
I've been seeing a lot of these post lately. I have had the new layout for almost 2 weeks now. Not sure how I got it because I didn't have to do anything.
 
It never ceases to amaze me how many people think that the "likes" they've earned by spamming other peoples posts or forums with begging/attn seeking somehow validates them. It also never ceases to amaze me how it must work on some level because they keep doing it.
 
Thanks, Felicia! This, as opposed to the new gmail layout, I might actually like.
 
Awesome, I was waiting forward to it! Thanks a lot
 
The more I use it the less I like it. This is only barely usable if you either have very few subscriptions or you spend all friggin day on youtube hitting refresh. I missed one day and I find myself digging and digging to try to find out what I've missed because it's such an inefficient way to present this data... I am dissapoint.
 
So, I have to wonder...if you look closely after the second equals sign, take out the stuff in the middle...you get STFU. As in, stop complaining about not having it early??
 
thank you for your thanks giving and your my member in my circle,ernestphiri.my god bless you
 
I LOVE YOU FELICIA DAY!!! YOU ARE SO FREAKING SEXY!!!!
 
Great! Thanks for sharing!

I was using the early version of that new design for months already. :p

I find the new YoutTube design most displeasing.
 
I saw it the other day... I don't really care for it. What is with Google and lists like that, though?
 
What you talkin' 'bout Willis?

I'm Kaiser Soze.
 
I don't care for it, much like the new GMail layout it is a massive overhaul of something that worked, but unlike the new GMail layout it actually functions.
