Design Sketches

The reason I have the mini video shuffler on the user profile page is becuase in order for the video shuffler to work the user will need to have an account and be signed onto YouTube, in order for it to know what kind of videos the user likes or dislikes therefore knowing which vidoes to play.  One way for the video shuffler to become more efficient would be to understand the user’s perferances better, and to do that YouTube will need to keep track of the type of videos the user usually likes to watch.

    I really like the simplistic icons you use. Heart and crossed circle pretty hard to misinterpret their purpose.

    I also like the layout and the idea of an entirely new page dedicated to the shuffler.

    The only thing I would worry about is if it turns into the features like blogs, etc that never get used which might have to do with having to navigate away from the main page and having to log in to use them.
