i hate that i cannot download the video anymore :\ i am learning to knit , every time i want to check back on a particular stitch, i have to wait for the video to load ,.... buy the time it is done i am already not interested, and start playing GW2....
Do you use Firefox? Because there are still addon's for FF that still allow video's to be downloaded from YouTube. I've had to switch addon's recently because the one I was using stopped working. I now use Easy YouTube Video Downloader 6.5
which works just fine. Google Chrome won't allow YouTube video's to be downloaded - it just blocks it no matter what extension/addon for Chrome I tried... but good ole FF still works - for now at least, but seems YouTube/Google want to block all downloads... which frustrates me no end as I have a data limit on my usage... so can't just go watch and re-download video's all the time (and all video's I download are not copyrighted stuff anyways)
As for this new change.... It's annoying. I also hate the pushing of video channels rather than video's itself. I generally don't use them, but I found a few of the channels I subscribe to now via recommended/similar video's that showed on the right hand side... now I'm wondering what video's/channels I might miss because that feature is gone. And arrg.. why is everything left-orientated? Gah.. if your going to force a limited width to your site.. at least have it centered. User's should not have to use an addon like Stylish to resolve an issue that should not be an issue imo.
