This is my Dark Youtube skin, which makes Youtube appear darker for a few reasons. For one it doesn't wash out the colours from the video you're watching and surrounds it in black, so the video window is nothing but the colours you want to be seeing. Secondly it makes it easier on the eyes, which for me is the most important aspect of the whole thing. Keep in mind that I fix and update skins based on when I notice that they might need updating, or something is wrong. However, I don't always upload the results immediately (and sometimes the results get lost entirely). Please pardon my slowness in updates from time to time.
On March 31, 2012, YouTube added a light switch on all video pages for Earth Hour. When clicked, the switch made the page turn dark as shown in the screenshot. After the 31st, the switch will probably be removed, and so will the dark style of YouTube. I have extracted the images and CSS from the dark YouTube and put them in this style. This style will allow you to enable YouTube with the "lights out" even after Earth Hour has ended, and the style is applied all throughout the site. All of the code and images come from YouTube. All I have done is made them compatible to work in Stylish. Enjoy. - JohnTuley

Some simple changes to the new YouTube design (beta as of October, full as of December), to make it look a lot more like the older design. (Centers the page, removes avatars, no more plain white background, old front page design and more). Click for more information, feedback is much appreciated!
A dark theme for YouTube that was originally based on the "Earth Hour 2012" look. - Firefox & Chrome tested - Style started by YouTube but continued, improved, and extended throughout the site by me. This style has been updated for YouTube's New Look that happened December 2012. After some long sessions and a complete re-write, I am ready to release what I have. If there are any issues, PLEASE make a NEW post in the discussion section and I will get to it when I can! IMPORTANT NOTICE: I am going to PAX East coming up, so most of my free time has been spent planning. But once I return and am settled, I'll be working on this theme again. Sorry for the wait and thanks for your patience.
This style is lightly inspired by Youtube Graphic Style (Dark) but is largely improved: 1. Needs less maintenance if YouTube changes it's configuration slightly (hopefully!). 2. The original YouTube Dark used too many dark elements thereby reducing visibility in some circumstances (buttons, menus, etc.). 3. It's completely cross-browser compatible including css border-radius/box-shadow tags for for each browser that supports such tags.

Feel free to comment on my support page at http://www.cloudstew.com I read the comments often and respond to bug reports quickly. Keeping this style up-to-date takes a lot of work! Showing your support would go a long way in keeping me motivated.

If you are a new user, I suggest you try the default settings first (just install). For auto-updates, see YouTube Black by freecyber, based on this style - it will update automatically on Firefox and be updatable through "manage styles" -> "check for updates" in Chrome, because it has no settings. It looks like this one with all default settings. If you don't like the options you chose and want to choose new ones, and you don't see the Update button, delete the style and re-install. Formerly called YouTube Earth Hour (Dark Theme)
