YouTube announced that is upgrading their site to use a new, wider player in a widescreen aspect ratio

Over the years we've heard a lot of feedback from you about what you'd like to change about YouTube, and the size of our video player is always top of mind. That's why today we're excited to announce a bigger YouTube player.

We're expanding the width of the page to 960 pixels to better reflect the quality of the videos you create and the screens that you use to watch them. This new, wider player is in a widescreen aspect ratio which we hope will provide you with a cleaner, more powerful viewing experience. And don't worry, your 4:3 aspect ratio videos will play just fine in this new player.

The first cute video I watched in WideScreen, high-quality mode was Verdi's Nabucco: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXbGeynsBu4&watch_response. Just awesome, the display & sound :)
