YouTube video player gets a revamp

Top stories, Web 2.0

The Google Operating System blog has info and screenshots, claiming one improvement will be the ability to jump to anywhere in a video even if it hasn’t fully downloaded yet, while another is the ability to browse ten related vids via a Mac OS X style scrolling dock within the video frame itself.

Apparently the changes show up if you embed YouTube videos within your Facebook profile already. Which is nice.
