YouTube tests a new interface

Here's how you can enable the experiment:

  • Go to YouTube and load your browser's developer console:
    • Google Chrome: Tools, Developer Tools
    • Mozilla Firefox: Web Developer, Web Console
    • Internet Explorer: Developer Tools (F12), Console
  • Copy and paste the following code:
    document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=_wVil4PwtpA; path=/; domain=.youtube.com";window.location.reload();
  • Press Enter and you'll see the experiment.

If doesn't work, try this other method:

  • Open Chrome and install this extension.
  • Go to YouTube and select "Edit Cookies" option on the context menu:
  • Find a cookie named VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE and replace the value with this cookie value:
  • Click "Submit cookie changes" and refresh the page.
