Have you noticed that Google silently revamped its desktop player for YouTube? If you are familiar with the changes, then you will see a new desktop player with a sleeker look and feel for YouTube that replaced the old one.

Google Operating System, who first spotted the changes in a blog post says Google has been testing the feature for a few months.

About the rollout of its new service, YouTube writes on its TestTube page

Our new player design has a bit more polish, gets out of the way of your video playback, and scales to any screen or embed size. Give it a spin while we continue to add features and refine the look and feel.

The newly HTML 5 video player comes with a more polished design and is compatible with any screen or embed size. In the new player, you will find a transparent control bar that automatically hides when you’re not using it, and it also features new buttons and dropdown menus.
