How to enable the YouTube Transparent Player in Chrome [Tip]

Did you know? YouTube has been making constant changes to its user interface. Some changes are very subtle that you may not even notice it. As for other changes, they may be rolled out gradually so there’s a chance that you still can’t see it yet.

Speaking of which, YouTube’s latest experimental feature is its transparent video player. With the new feature, the control bar as well as the seek bar will not only become transparent. They will also be automatically hidden whenever you move your mouse cursor away from the video. You also won’t be seeing any title on top of the video (see the “AFTER” sample image below).

So if you want to enable the new YouTube transparent video player, here’s what you need to do.
