It needs more space on the left and right of the feed content section (middle column). Other than that quite a great work. I myself had in plans to make a redesign like this. :)

So nice! Youtube is longggg over-due a redesign!
This would be perfect if it had a likes/dislikes indicator bar in the thumbnails/description before clicking.
Good job. Unfortunately titles are always longer than 1 line ;)
@Murid Rahhal they are, but unfortunately titles are always cranked everywhere and cut :)
Hot stuff man. Great work @Charlie / TheIssland
Pretty sick man. My only feedback is I think the length of the videos in minutes/seconds is used more as a design element than a useful set of information. Do users really take heed of how long a video is? I think you might have made it a bit more important than it needed to be.
Beautiful otherwise. Cheers!
Well, I loves it.

Yeah, you should submit this. I can't stand going there anymore due to poor design. Clean it up!
I love everything except for the youtube logo. I think if you kept their current logo and put it there, this would be perfect :)
Maybe the size of the video length can be easily solved by just using another font weight. That's probably Gotham Bold, So I'll try it with a book or light weigh.
Also, I see myself checking the like/dislike rate very often. Youtube is (sadly) filled up with poor/misleading content to attract views, so I would find really useful to have a preview of the rating on mouse-over.
Anyway I feel youtube requires, more than an aesthetic approach (which I really appreciate it), a deep thought on what it's its purpose. Is not a social network, either a video bookmark tool, either is a content distributor, but all worlds are weirdly mixed and, in my opinion, creates a really confusing and unpleasant UX.
I feel I could write a book about how many things in YT could be improved... starting with a damn "search while I'm watching withouth leaving the page"
While I think that the aesthetics here are nice, I feel like the 'redesign' could have been pushed a bit further. Design by it's nature asks the designer to consider the function of the content, and reflect that in the mechanics of the design piece. I too feel that YouTube could go through some redesigns, the layout right now is this strange three information columns where it is hard to differentiate the information at a first glance. But how can the project of redesigning YouTube reshape the face of the service? What interactions can the user gain through a new design? Moving the browse and upload tabs to the top is a step in the right direction, but what other things can be pushed like that? Right now an overwhelming majority of this redesign comes off feeling like re-skinning.
Hate the current Youtube look.
Perhaps you forgot the ads?
Love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it!!!!! Arrgghh!!! Just a little too much darkness on the left but love what you did!
@Andrew Lucas The video lenght and quality information (HD or not) are actually probably the most important filters in YT – little hint there for @Charlie / TheIssland if you should consider drawing a V2 design ;)
thats cool ;)
It's really nice!
awesome! so clean! like it, mate!)

Since you're showing off the design on such a wide view port, why not make it fluid/responsive for easier navigation? It would be a lot easier to scan through several videos if you had two or three columns in the centre rather than a single column limited to one third of the design's width.
Also not too sure how I feel about the blue sidebar stretching to the far left of the view port. It demands more attention than the content itself because it occupies such a large space with such a notable visual contrast. If you were to go down the responsive route, I'd definitely push the contents of the menu to the far left and give the video thumbnails more room to expand/breathe -- otherwise, maybe just a floating box for the menu to the left rather than having it stretch all the way?
Really like the font choices here. The footer in particular; I know it's probably the least notable element of a website, but I've always had a thing for classy footers~
