YouTube adds “Theater View” & “Turn Lights Off”

Similar to Hulu and Fancast, Youtube has now released a Theater View & Turn Lights Off version of each page. Really cool ajax integration that allows you to focus more on the video instead of the rest of the navigation and text on the page. Here are a couple of screenshots with highlights on the buttons.  BTW, the below video I was watching was a really cool Musicians@Google video series with OK GO band member Andy Ross who talked about his new music/band and the success that OK GO had on YouTube with their videos and user-generated contests. Check it out at

  1. I wish there was a similar script available for wordpress users; our website has daily video podcast and it would be dandy to have “light off” mode in our site.
