If you’ve been watching any videos on YouTube today, you may have noticed things are looking a bit different. Google appears to be rolling out a transparent video player on its Web interface today.

The new video player is a lot sleeker, featuring controls floating on the video itself instead of planted underneath. Besides just looking nicer, the redesign also saves a few vertical pixels of screen real estate.

he controls disappear after a second or two of inactivity, and reappear once you point your mouse to the bottom of the video again. Playlists still appear to the right of videos, however.

and the new look applies to embedded content as well.

Also it’s official announced.
