Idk if anyone has noticed this yet, or if I'm just really slow, but I open up one of my bookmarked youtube vids for some awesomeness metal and everything is black and blue. Plays fine, just everything is dark. I'm used to a bright white annoying youtube.

If you click the little light switch thing up next to the title of the video, it goes back to white.

Discuss the legitimacy of this. Have I gone nuts, or is this just a really cool, useless tool?

I was wondering why Youtube was all black.

What?! Where? Cannot see it anywhere, and I'm in England? :s

When I think of the perpetual journey through life
When it always feels like autumn
The wind moves slowly to the north
And the flowers die
Rain falls in my dreams

Yeah, I'm seeing nothing.


You are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a boarded front door.
There is a small mailbox here.

No here it isen't, I'm still having the time of my life flipping on and off, maybe I'll break it if I do it enough.

If you have it, it's up at the top of the video, to the far left of the title, and it looks exactly like the light switch on the wall of your typical home.

I hope this stays - I miss the feature to dim the rest of youtube for videos, if I'm watching something in HD, I want to turn the brightness up without a fully-white webpage blinding me.

Aaawww the baby is very cute... I didn't notice of the switch... It's a nice tool when I'm in the darkness and the f**cking white screen hurt my eyes.

It's 10:23 and works for me. So I've still got about 10-11 hours of this?

ok, maybe I'm wrong. Its 10:30am and the light's gone now, but last night it was there and went off during earth hour so I presumed thats all it did.

They should keep it dark all the time.

Funny thing is that bright text on dark background will use no less power than the opposite on monitors, and could actually use MORE power if your monitor has dynamic contrast and makes everything brighter to compensate for the black background.

If they actually wanted to do something useful for earth hour they'd turn their servers off.

Time zones people..

Also does anyone else notice that the globe next to the logo has what looks like two frogs humping each other?

This is similar to blackle. I think theyre supposed to save a whole bunch of energy by keeping the background black... idk if it works tho

Only if you have a CRT monitor. LCDs actually use power making things black..

I like the dark feel in youtube. It really lets the videos stand out.
