YouTube trying to freshen up their mobile layout
YouTube is trying out a new layout for their mobile version of their website that offers a more streamlined user experience and provides new functionality even though odds are you have an app for that.

On the updated version of the YouTube mobile site users can now like or dislike a video, add it to your favorites, comment on it and even subscribe to a channel. The new look isn’t the default look but if want to check it out here’s how.

Just head on over to and opt-in. The site can be accessed via Safari on the iPhone if you want to try an alternative to the native YouTube application. Check it out and tell us what you think in the comments below.

It would be nice if they made it so that the video's weren't all incompatable with iPhones. I hate looking for a song and all I can find is home videos.

for real, why does everybody need to make a video if everybody else made a video, no one has the advantage

Hopefully they also allow videos on the full site to be accessed through the mobile site as well. It's annoying when I cannot find it on the mobile site and then have to launch the browser to view it on the full site.
