YouTube prepares for Google TV with Leanback; touts new HTML5-friendly mobile version

YouTube has given itself a makeover, in time for Google TV’s launch, by using keyboard arrow key commands as the sole means of video navigation and selection, apart from playback control. Called Leanback, the new interface is meant to allow you to sit back and control your viewing experience, with a wireless keyboard on your PC or the remote controller with Google TV. It was also seen during Google I/O 2010, when Google TV was unveiled. It’s currently in open beta. Check out a short video of it below, or try out the beta, here.

In the meanwhile, YouTube has also launched a new mobile version of the site, specifically improved to be faster, and incorporate a larger, touch interface for touchscreen phones. The ability to create playlists, and access favourites and ratings are all now available on the mobile version as well. YouTube has also assured users that that the mobile version would stay update to date with changes on the main site. It supports HTML5/H.264 by default. You can check out the mobile version here.
