YouTube is not done redesigning the YouTube player, it started testing new buttons and a slightly new look earlier this year, but it has now introduced a new, dynamically resizing player.
If you changed the quality of the video, to 720p or even 1080p, the size of the player on the screen remained the same. Once the width of the window surpasses 1280 pixels, the video player size increases to 1280x720 pixels and the video quality changes to 720p, which is actually 1280x720 pixels, provided the video is available in 720p of course. If the window width is smaller than 1280 pixels, the large button only increases the player size to 854x480 pixels and the video quality is set to 480p, which, you guessed it, means 854x480 pixels. The change does make sense, but the large video player, the 720p version, is too big, even on a fairly large monitor with a full HD resolution, 1920x1080 pixels. The large player is a good idea, one of the most requested features from the Cosmic Panda experiment was the larger-sized player. It is quite surprising that the video hosting site YouTube does not offer better video player controls. That's not a problem for all users, or even the majority of them, it seems, but if you prefer better controls, you need to look at third party extensions and scripts to do so for you. One of the scripts that you can use in this regard is the Resize YouTube Player userscript which handles that in an automatic fashion for you.
After you have installed the script you will notice that all YouTube videos that you open on the YouTube website are automatically resized to fit the browser window fully.


The userscript changes the resolution of the video automatically as well to a higher one to avoid situations where a 320p video is displayed in full screen on a 1920x1200 monitor. What's interesting here is that you can scroll down the page to access all the other contents that are normally displayed on YouTube.
I have tested the script in Firefox with the Greasemonkey extension installed, and in Google Chrome where it works right out of the box.  It may work in other web browsers as well but I have not tested that at all. Martin Brinkmann is a journalist from Germany who founded Ghacks Technology News Back in 2005.
This means that people with large, wide-screen monitors are going to be able to watch videos that take up a larger part of the screen without actually going full-screen.
The video player dwarfs every other UI element and you won't be able to see much else on the site.
The dynamic resizing is also a good idea, Google has been moving towards website designs that adjust to the size of the window, the new Gmail for example.
While you can change the size of the player manually to a larger fixed size or full screen, you do not get any options to modify it to display in a dynamic size based on the browser window. You may still see black bars at the top or bottom of the window as it fits the width fully by default. So, depending on the size, the video is automatically played in 480p, 720p or 1080p if available.


Here you can read the description and comments, browse related videos or interact with the video's author, for instance by subscribing or liking the video.
He is passionate about all things tech and knows the Internet and computers like the back of his hand. It has since then become one of the most popular tech news sites on the Internet with five authors and regular contributions from freelance writers.
But in this particular case, maybe the best choice would be to give users the option to switch between the three sizes.
If your screen height is too large, you will get black borders on top or bottom of the player interface.
Those do go away on the other hand if you resize the browser window as the video will automatically refit itself to use all of the width of it.
