Get ready for a whole new experience on Wikipedia. This morning the Wikimedia Foundation announced that it is launching a much-anticipated video project, rolling out a new HTML5 video player that will make it easier for users to add videos to Wikipedia articles.
If you’ve tuned into Hulu today, you’ve probably noticed that things look a little bit different. The online video streaming site has launched a brand new bigger and better player.
Over the coming weeks YouTube is planning to roll out some pretty major changes to their video player. Rumors have been flying about a new player complete with thumbnail previews and storyboards, but now those rumors are about to become a reality. Here’s a sneak peak of what’s in store.
Over the past year or so, YouTube has made a number of changes to their video player. In April 2010, they rolled out a new design, in August of last year they updated their post screen, and just weeks ago they began offering a new logoless player for embeds. Now it seems that YouTube is at it again, rolling out a brand new video player design.
Earlier this year, YouTube launched a new video player with an upgraded design, and it appears that they are on the verge of rolling out even more changes to their video player. Online sources are reporting the observance of a new “post-screen”, the screen that shows up after the video has stopped playing. Check out screenshots after the jump and let us know if you’ve seen any changes to the YouTube player.
YouTube has begun rolling out a new video player design today. We noticed the new design popping up on various videos this evening, and it appears to have been applied only to a portion of the site’s videos so far.
