New youtube design on Maxthon Beta?

7 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I have a problem with new youtube design at http://www.youtube.com/new on Maxthon 5.0.4.800 BETA (latest&updated version).

--

TRIED SOLUTION:
1) I tried default User Agent string and @Magdalene's User Agent on this thread. => It let me "apply" on new YouTube's design, but then i'm at blank page.

FAQ:
1) it's made for Google's chrome browser.
2) I found this theme feature today, but it was released as a console script a year ago.

FIX:
SOLVED: Problem was with "YouTube Center" extension.

Thanks for help! :wub:

Youtube center extension is not necessary for the new youtube page to open properly. I use this string and it opens fine: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Maxthon/5.0 Chrome/57.0.2526.73 Safari/537.36 I simply changed  one digit from 4 to 5 in the chrome identifier.

No idea why you might be facing issues.

 

Edit: Did you reboot M5 after changing UA?

It’s not required to open the page and never has been. It’s to add extra features to make things better, easier when using it. It seems the extension hasn’t been updated yet to support the new design. Depending on what YTC was being used for then it may or may not be needed by the OP.

I used to use it to force flash to get the popup video working. Seeng as that is now available natively in MX5 with html5 I don't really need to use it anymore. Although it flagging watched videos was a nice feature.

But the problem isn’t with Maxthon, or it's UA - it’s the extension if it’s being used.

So either use the old site with YTC, or the new one without it, at least until the extension is fixed.

Would be curious to know if the same happens when using YTC on other browsers though.
