Many people are sporting HTPCs these days — media computers hooked up to their televisions — but some sites are designed like you’re sitting at your computer desk not on your living room couch. YouTube XL makes YouTube couch-friendly.
YouTube XL presents common YouTube options in a large display format for easy navigation without having to read a tiny font from your couch 3m away. You can quickly navigate to spotlighted, top rated and most viewed categories. Clicking on “More…” also gives you quick access to rising videos, most favourites, most discussed and more.
You can also set the next video in your search results or viewing category to start playing when the current one ends and filter out content not suitable for minors. If you’ve been annoyed by the tiny fonts and buttons when trying to use YouTube in a living room setup, YouTube XL is a great way to access YouTube in a couch-friendly format.
