    The revamped Youtube has some interesting new details, like greyed hyperlinks in the video description.

    Links are now so greyed out you have to really "concentrate" to see them.

    Can't help but wonder if its the beginning of the end for links in the description.

    Damn :(

    Yea true and the overall design also isnt that user friendly. I had a hard time finding the date of the video upload. Still you can get over it by adding a call to action arrow saying "Click on the link in the description below" at the end of the video..That will help

    Its greyed out and it sucks real bad. Double quoting the link would help to get attention.

    Has not affected my youtube traffic at all, I simpy have an annotation on the video in the top right teeling users to click the link in the description to get .....

    And although less visible than before, you have to be blind not to see the link
