YouTube launches new look for embedded videos

YouTube launches new look for embedded videos

Filed under: , , , ,

YouTube has been slowly rolling out a new interface for its flash videos, making it easier for viewers to get sucked into hours and hours of watching pointless online videos of cats dancing.

The new interface shows related videos when you scroll over the bottom of the screen with your cursor. While selected videos on YouTube have had the new design for a while, it's just starting to pop up on videos embedded in blogs.

So now visitors to your website can watch a bunch of videos that you'd never intended to show them without leaving your page. That's, umm.. cool, right?

YouTube's also made it a bit easier to embed videos on your site by adding buttons with the URL and embed code at the end of the video.
