YouTube Tests New Video Player for Desktop

YouTube tests a new video player with a transparent control bar that hides when you're not using it, just like mobile video players.

The experimental player has new icons and redesigned menus. Toggles for autoplay and annotations look better, while dropdowns for speed and quality look like mobile menus. Both seem to be inspired by iOS.
