  1. Adjust the display during video playback so that the on screen button icons are easier to identify when the video is using white lighting.

    I would appreciate if you could adjust the display during video playback so that the on screen button icons are easier to identify when the video is using white lighting. It becomes too difficult to locate the "back", "play/pause", "like/dislike", etc., when the background also matches the icon colors.

    • Add a back button back to the youtube player

      As far as I can tell, when using the youtube player the back button is gone in the latest update. This seems to be thanks to the fact you moved it into the player, and obviously that doesn't happen on the youtube player.

      Before the player loads I do see a back button, but the player covers it when it loads (this is on a Microsoft Surface with a 1366x768 screen).

          Im using a Surface Tablet with Windows 8.1 and this happens only with 480p which is my default quality

          • Allow for preset resolutions for different levels of Internet connection.

            While it would be ideal to always run the app at the default resolution, differing levels of Internet connectivity at different times makes this impractical. So you should either add a resolution feature to the recommended player (sound would be nice too) or just allow for a "play at the highest resolution for my connection" option.

            • Make it so you have a choice for smaller player if you want to especially for low quality video

              Make it so you have a choice for smaller player if you want to especially for low quality video. You throw us into full screen mode for every video. Let us decide if we want full screen and make a choice for player size for videos including full screen if we want it. You give us no choice and for low quality video full screen is either unfocused or not filling screen and it looks bad

              • notify when a video resolution is unavailable for download

                just tried to download a video in 720p only to have it download in 320p. apparently youtube was still processing the 720 resolution so it would have been nice to have been informed that it was forced to download in the lower resolution at the time of downloading, instead of when i went to watch it. (or just have those resolutions left out of the download options)

                    • Make it smarter about working offline.

                      Whenever the computer is put to sleep then woken, I'm given a "disconnected from the internet" error regardless of whether or not I'm connected. It's annoying and feels like a bug.

                      • Language problems

                        In the dutch version of Hyper, it always places a dot before the numbers of minutes, hours, days, and weeks ago a video was uploaded. (Example: .5 hours ago) which may confuse people with for example: 0.5 hours ago

                        And also, it says: 1337 watched, instead of: 1337 times watched

                        Can you please fix this? If not, you can ask me to be a developer and help you with the problem!

                                All sharing is handled via the charm bar. There is a quick link in the app for share now. To get the video link you can use an app called Clipboard, which will allow you to copy the link via the share charm.

                                Could have a button searches the program itself rather than the windows 8.1. There could also be an option for more popular videos youtube.

                                  The latest version includes the Windows 8.1 search box. If you are looking for Popular videos, I suggest the Youtube channel “Popular on YouTube” it is the official channel for popular videos on YouTube, curated by YouTube.

                                    • Desperatly need the app to load more than 2 scrolls of in-browser videos.

                                      Currently the subs and other videos only show up upto the show more button if using browser, that is the videos only load upto a certain amount. I have 70+ subs and channels like machinima or ign post allot of videos making. Meaning I dont have the option to see them all in 'subscriptions' tab because it only shows a certain amount of videos. It is a youtube.com thing and would be nice if you somehow made the app load more videos than it currantly does.

                                        • Hide cursor when fullscreen in Hyper Player.

                                          I find the Hyper Player a superior option to the standard YouTube one, although I do miss how the cursor disappears when the YouTube player goes fullscreen after being idle for a few seconds. Adding this functionality to the Hyper player would be appreciated.
