ABBI CHENG, YouTube Review

And now you can watch your favorite YouTube videos in high-definition wider screen format.

YouTube has announced its page width increase to 960 pixels “to better reflect the quality of the videos you create and the screens that you use to watch them.”

“Over the years we’ve heard a lot of feedback from you about what you’d like to change about YouTube, and the size of our video player is always top of mind,” the Google-owned video-sharing site said on its blog.  

“This new, wider player is in a widescreen aspect ratio which we hope will provide you with a cleaner, more powerful viewing experience. And don’t worry, your 4:3 aspect ratio videos will play just fine in this new player,” it said.

”As always, we welcome your feedback and encourage you to share your thoughts with us on this exciting, new change happening for all videos on YouTube,” it said.
