You Tube format change ?

Has anyone else noticed if YouTube has changed its format.....
I watch a lot of Japanese and korean "drama series" because they have subtitles..... yesterday,... when the video was playing you could see the track below the screen, and still read the subtitles... today... the "small screen" seems larger... and the track below disappears on running the video... if you want to see the track...( to pause or rerun part ) it obscures the subtitles...
also the "medium size"  screen seem larger too
Don`t like it... anyone know if it`s possible to revert it ?

Re: You Tube format change ?

i was reading somewhere it was changing format , but i think it also depends on which browser you use .
with FF 37.0.1 they look better in HD now
Asus ROG Hero Vii Z97 , Intel i5 4690k ,ROG Asus Strix 1070,
samsung 850evo 250gig , WD black 2 TB . Asus Phoebus sound ,
16 gig Avexir ram 2400 , water cooling Corsair H100i gtx ,
Corsair 750HXI Psu , Phanteks Enthoo pro case .

Hmm... yeah... ff 37.01 may be the culprit... was an update late yesterday....  Sad
Have found that using the FULL SCREEN works fine for the subtitles, and the track at the bottom...

Since @shutters first post I've noticed when I search you tube I seem to be getting results returned in Arabic or Spanish rather than English  Huh
