YouTube to launch redesign today

Youtube is set to roll out their new video page design for all videos sometime today. The Google-owned site claims that it will be one of the biggest redesigns in the history of their company.

The interface overhaul will replace star ratings with a familiar "like/dislike" system. Video pages have been streamlined and extra clutter removed by grouping actions together in menus and uniting other areas of the site together, like the description and statistics area. Users can also search without interrupting the current video that's playing and queue it right from the results.

Here is the the full email acquired by TechCrunch that was sent out to Youtube partners about today's events:

Dear Partner,

We want to provide you with an update on YouTube’s new video page, which we’ve been hard at work on for the last several months.

This new video page makeover is one of the biggest redesigns in YouTube history — and we’re excited to make YouTube a better place for you and your content!
