YouTube One Channel - What is it?

So what is the new "Youtube one channel" thing?

In one sentence - it's a Youtube channel that is 'responsive' to all devices - desktop, phones, tablets, TV's. So now the question is - what is a responsive?

Here's Wikipedia's answer to that questions:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Responsive web design (often abbreviated to RWD) is a web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).
So in other words, the YouTube one channel is basically a Youtube responsive channel.

Why should you care about this whole responsive stuff?

It's simple. People view your channel from many different devices. Using the new YouTube one channel design, will ensure best experience to anyone who 
This is exviews your channel, no matter where they view it from.
tremely important and has a lot to do with what's called 'Branding'.

Brand is the "name, term, design, symbol, or any other feature that identifies one seller's good or service as distinct from those of other sellers."[1] Initially, Branding was adopted to differentiate one person's cattle from another's by means of a distinctive symbol burned into the animal's skin with a hot iron stamp, and was subsequently used in businessmarketing and advertising. A modern example of a brand is Coca Cola which belongs to the Coca-Cola Company. A brand is the most valuable fixed asset of a Corporation."

Upgrade to YouTube One Channel design now!

Let's look at a quick example. 

Charlie is an owner of a computer store called "CharTech". Charlie spends lot's of time and energy sitting in front of his computer at work and designing his YouTube channel. After a full day's work his 100 percent satisfied with the his new channel design. On his way back home, he reaches out to his Nexus 7 tablet (sorry iPad users, but Charlie is a big Google fan), and to his disappointment, he finds out that his new channel design isn't showing up correctly on the tablet. So he quickly takes out his Nexus 4, and check what his channel looks like on a mobile phone. And again, bad news. Charlie's hard work isn't appearing on either his tablet or mobile phone. So what can he do? Until the new YouTube One Channel solution - not much.
Even though his desktop version might look awesome, on other devices it's looking nothing like the original desktop version. People who reach Charlie's mobile channel have see none of charlie's branding - no header, no icons, no social links or anything else the desktop version offered. A new user might not even recognize it's the same CharTech channel.

And then came YouTube One Channel. Google in recent years, understood that the world is going mobile, and that requires adaptation. As a result, they keep offering users the tools to adapt to the transition in order to make it as smooth as possible. YouTube's new channel offers users a smooth transition between desktop and mobile devices, and want to ensure that users get the best experience.

There is no reason to wait. If you care about your audience, if you care about your branding, if you care about your content being viewed in the best possible way no matter where it's viewed... Make the upgrade.
It's not that difficult actually. All you need to do is create one great design, and that's it. It will appear smoothly throughout all of the devices.

It's in .PSD format, so you'll need to have a photo editing software like Photoshop or Gimp.

    This change is part of a redesign face that google is going through to optimize web pages for fluid view throughout all devices. Check out the new Google Plus Cover design templates here.

    Below is the original post from the creators blog:

    We’re happy to announce that YouTube One Channel is open for everyone.
    You may have noticed that some YouTube channels have a new look. We’ve been running a limited beta test, and after collecting and implementing lots of feedback from creators, we’re ready for all channels on YouTube to upgrade to the new design.
    The main focus of this update is to make your new channel look great on browsers across all screens and devices. It will also help you convert more visitors into subscribers with a slot for a channel trailer, and you can customize how you organize your videos and playlists so it fits your programming strategy.
    Try these three activities to get the most out of your new channel:
    1. Create a trailer, which will play for any visitor who isn’t yet subscribed to your channel. This is your chance to hook them and win a new fan. Treat this trailer as if it were an ad. Keep it short and engaging and have a compelling call to action at the end.
    2. Create and upload a big, beautiful piece of Channel Art. This will act as your channel’s visual identity. And unlike the branding on the old channels, it will look good across all screens and devices, no matter how big or small.
    3. Organize your channel’s videos and playlists so they work best for your audience and programming. With the new channel home and customizable sections, you’re in control of what subscribers see when they click on your channel from the guide.

    Check out and click the button at the bottom to get started. We’ll migrate your channel to the new design, and walk you through it. For a limited time, you’ll be able to switch back to the previous design if you like.
    For more tips and strategies for how to optimize your YouTube One Channel, check out Channel Optimization in the YouTube Creator Playbook.

    YouTube Tape Mode Enabled (Paused)
    YouTube Tape Mode Enabled (Play)

    This feature is only available in selected videos, check this one out as an example:

    Watch live example

    So what is this about and what does it do?
    What it does is makes videos look fuzzy and blurred and adds static just like old VHS tapes. So basically you can now watch videos in VHS tape quality. Great isn't it???

    Well... Maybe not... :) So why was this feature added today done?

    It was added as a commemoration to the day when the first videotape was presented - back in 14 April, 1956. You can read more on wikipedia here.
