How to bring back the old classic Youtube!

Here's how you can get back the old classic look on youtube.


Here's how you can get back the old classic look on youtube.

First keep in mind that it's working so far.

This requires installing an addon/extension for your browser that will run "userscripts" automatically. A list of them from https://greasyfork.org/en

You may even just run it in google chrome's development console.

Exactly how to do this on each of the extensions I can't say, but the steps when using Violentmonkey are:

// ==UserScript== // @name Youtube old design // @namespace 4c5725cd7d4b94b6f1784e759d5a43fbdd917971 // @version 0.1 // @description Activates the old YT design without messing with your other settings // @author /u/AyrA_ch // @match https://www.youtube.com/* // @match http://www.youtube.com/* // @match https://youtube.com/* // @match http://youtube.com/* // @grant none // @run-at document-start // ==/UserScript== (function () { var getDesignCookie = function (cookie) { //Find existing preferences var prefs = cookie.split("; ").filter(function (v) { return v.indexOf("PREF=") === 0; })[0]; //No preferences, return new ones with design setting if (!prefs) { console.log("prefs not set in cookie"); return "PREF=f6=8"; } //Process all settings var entries = prefs.substr(5).split('&'); var set = false; for (var i = 0; i < entries.length; i++) { if (entries[i].indexOf("f6=") === 0) { set = true; //Set the old design flag var value = +entries[i].substr(3); if ((value & 8) === 0) { console.log("Activating old design and reloading..."); entries[i] = "f6=" + (value | 8); window.setTimeout(location.reload.bind(location,true),100); } else{ console.log("Old design already active. Doing nothing"); } } } //Design flag setting doesn't exists. Adding it instead if (!set) { console.log("Activating old design and reloading..."); entries.push("f6=8"); window.setTimeout(location.reload.bind(location,true),100); } //Build cookie return "PREF=" + entries.join('&'); }; //Update cookie document.cookie = getDesignCookie(document.cookie) + ";domain=.youtube.com;path=/"; })(); /* LICENSE: This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
