YouTube Redesigns Video Page

YouTube on Wednesday plans to roll out a complete redesign of its video pages. In an email sent to publishing partners, the Google unit called it "one of the biggest redesigns in YouTube history." Among other changes, a new "see more videos" area will now reside atop of playing videos, which should make it possible to load a horizontal grid of every video uploaded by a particular user.

This feature will rely on Ajax technology, so user won't have to reload pages to browse through additional videos. "The redesign will also put more emphasis on channel subscriptions and branding," according to NewTeeVee. As it notes, YouTube has recently been experimenting with a number of other features as well, including auto-play functionality, a new playlist interface, and an optimized queue. Which of these features will make it into this latest redesign is not yet known.
