YouTube is crapping up... AGAIN

Thumbs Down 
So, I just moved my gmail account from a very old, meaningless one, to one that actually consists of my name. Now, Google decided that it's a good idea to switch my YouTube layout to a new one as well. ALL of it. Without warning. Now, I like it. It's clear, it's concise, and it retained all of the functionality that was in the old one. Except for a convenient switch to "Uploads only". Boo.

But they also made me move my monitor a couple of inches to the right.

And this is the reason:

The player is slightly to the left. Why. Is. That. So. I like it when the player is in the centre, because it means I can look at it without bending my neck. I guess they're trying to compensate for those who centre their monitor based on an average between keyboard and mouse, but most people I know centre their monitor based on keyboard only. This means that I have to bend my neck to watch a goddamned video.

I don't know how long will it take for this change to reach you, but if you see it, please for the life of our necks send feedback to YouTube about it.

Did you try to zoom it so it fills the whole screen?

No. The video looks like crap then. Same for fullscreen.
I might just end up writing some scripts to 1) change "" from "Now Playing" to "Subscriptions" and 2) Move the player into its place.

but these are dirty hacks. bottom line, youtube is gonna be broken again.

Your youtube page looks different to mine...

EDIT: Oh, I haven't got the update yet.

Ok, lets go and file complaints... (:

... or you could just drag you browser window a little to the right (or left or whatever) ...
