    Something is up with Youtube (Messed up Layout)

    I was watching some videos on youtube, catching up on my watch later playlist, then when I got done, I planned on looking up some car maintenance vids. Then out of nowhere, youtube's layout went screwy. I use google chrome (stable, version 68.0.3440.106), and I use the improvedtube extension to set youtube to the old layout (I hate the newer one)

    When watching a video, the vid should be in its little boundary box, recommended vids on the right and everything in its spot, but now, this happened

    I looked at youtube's "help" on google forums, and of course, google/youtube is giving no help at all; this layout bug happens even on internet explorer. is anyone else having this problem, and if so, PLEASE, tell me you found a solution bar "just deal with the new layout"

    Disable the ImprovedTube extension and see if that fixes the problem.

    I did, problem still persisted; I took the router offline, let it sit for a few hours, and the layout problem was fixed (tested with improvedtube on and off)

    Hi BrokenDaily

    Go to Youtube > Go into Developer Tools (Ctrl + Shift + I) > Application > Cookies > > PREF >
    And paste this into PREF, "
    al=en&f5=30030&f6=8 " ( without the " " )
    Hit enter, and refresh youtube.

    If that doesn't work, try this.

    • Install GreaseMonkey for whatever browser you use
      ( i use google chrome so Tampermonkey for chrome users )
    • Go to Tampermonkey Dashboard > Press the + sign and paste this code.

    // ==UserScript==// @name Fix youtube layout// @version 1// @grant none// @include YouTube @include*// @run-at document-start// @noframes// ==/UserScript==(function(){ //for correcting on navigation to a new video window.addEventListener("spfdone", function(e){ if(!document.getElementById("content").classList.contains('content-alignment')){ document.getElementById('content').classList.add('content-alignment'); } }); //for when you load a video directly window.addEventListener("load", function(event) { if(!document.getElementById("content").classList.contains('content-alignment')){ document.getElementById('content').classList.add('content-alignment'); } }); })();

    • After, press > File > Save.
    • Press Installed Userscripts and make sure it's Enabled
    • Refresh youtube / restart browser
