Came across this today on an embeded YouTube Video. When It Finished, I was shown the usual, but with a YouTube search box at the top, as seen here:

I thought it would look a lot more cluttered than it does, it actually works quite well, and removing the separator line and gradient between the video and where the Embed and URL codes are makes a world of difference to how the player looks overall.

When a search is performed, the results show up like the YouTube search "Grid" view, with the usual arrows at the side. Nice integration I think.

Is this new? I haven't seen it before so I'm sorry if it isn't. now if only Google would relaunch YouTube...

Today I saw a strange variation I haven't been able to reproduce yet, a search box at the start of the movie:

What's the URL of that video JayAre? I'm wondering if it's content which was in the actual movie itself, or added by YouTube.
