What they need to do is fix the playback. Since yesterday, I didn't receive a bad update but after being on the latest version for a while, I try to make video play but is stuck buffering, yes I got good wifi signal and quality support, but wtf is happening?

My YouTube Player changed to that automatically on safari about 9 days ago. Was I just lucky to get it early or has it happened to others as well?

While browing in a private window, I got the new transparent player in Safari, however when I was watching the same video on the normal window i got the old player and I can't understand why..
