I'm ok with new layout to everyone who complain about white space on right side there is " CTRL + " combo to remove it.

I don't think the white space on the right matters. If you center the content you're left with just is much white space. It's just now on the left and right of the document.

It is a bit strange that they choose to go with a left aligned page when most are centered today.

I would rather have a layout that looked like this for the homepage.

I'm fine with layout design changes, but this whole "you-centric" thing is well out-of-hand...

When I go onto YouTube to check out a music video, I don't want to be force-fed a feed of videos I've already watched, or videos by the same artists.

Maybe, just *maybe*, I want to explore, browse around, see something new.

But this has been going on subversively for years on all these sites...

Google News will show you news articles based on an algorithm which factors in what articles you've read previously, what device you're on, whether your on a Mac or Windows, or Linux (seriously), and even where you live.

Want to run a fun experiment? Find a friend who shares completely different political views from you and ask what he sees with a set list of search terms on Google News.

Facebook also does this. They continually automatically prune out who shows up on your feed based on who's content you like, comment and share.

I want the old-school back. I want to be able to poke around the different topics of interest by raw popularity or freshness, not by what best matches what I've previously watched, or best matches key words I've used in searches or G+.

Hate it. It's even LESS functional than it was before.... At least I used to be able to see if there were any replies on videos, or browse the recommended list with relative ease. Can't do either anymore.... Not without clicking around.

What was wrong with it before?

I'm not a fan of it. The biggest issue I have with it is the left justified thing. Why would I want everything jammed into half of my screen?

Facebook and Youtube need to stop changing things that aren't broken.

Want to Center YOUTUBE?

It's a workaround but it's better than the entire page being pulled to the left side.

HERE IS A HINT: Bookmark Youtube to default to your SUBSCRIPTIONS PAGE!

Are people really STILL surprised / shocked when Youtbe / Facebook
or any site makes changes? What I find hilarious is all the nut-jobs who think it is done SIMPLY to annoy the users or piss them off lol. Changes are made for various reasons behind the scenes many could not even begin to comprehend, I mean seriously you cannot really believe they gain anything trying to frustrate you, grow up. Sites, interfaces will keep changing, people will keep bitching moaning and whining, suck it up, get use to it, then eventually the next inevitable change will come and the process starts all over again. It is not a conspiracy or done JUST TO PISS YOU OFF PEOPLE get over it, life is change. If Youtube was EXACTLY as it was when it debuted it would likely be dead or left behind by now believe it or not. Now, when youtube stops allowing me to upload and host my videos or wants to charge me to host or view others videos THEN I will be with all of you bitching and complaining.

It sucks the first thing i found is now every time you open youtube you are spamed with bunch of vids that are not relevent to your subscrib list and it will not save your settings so each new time you go to youtube you have to reset it to show your subscriptions new up loads so ye i hate it and it sucks even more then the last change

Its a very stupid update and they should fire the idiot who updated the code. I mean really, is it so hard to center the webpage instead of it being on the very left of my 2560x1440 screen. So much white it almost burned my eyes this morning... /end rant

I never watch Youtube without Turn Off The Lights extension. I really think they should include this feature.

Yep, I don't mind all the other changes but why not center it? why all that empty space to the right?

They should consider giving Vimeo a try then. Their compression is much better and they're restrictions for unpaid users are better than what youtube offer.
