YouTube Tests New Video Player

A few days after launching a new interface for video pages, YouTube started to test a new video player with more elegant controls and a better-looking progress bar. I think the new player is in line with YouTube's latest redesign: it's cleaner, simpler and easier to use.

As StraightUpSocial shows, controls fade out when you're not interacting with the player, so they're no longer distracting. The player's progress bar becomes smaller when you're not likely to use it, while the volume control is now horizontal.

Here's a video that shows the new player tested by YouTube:
