Why is the YouTube bar yellow?

However, sometimes it will glitch and the bar will change yellow for the rest of the video.

This seems to be somewhat of a relatively new issue, as people on Twitter have been discussing the colour change of the YouTube bar.

One Twitter user said: “So my youtube glitched out and you know when you’re watching a video the bar at the bottom is red, but I got and ad, and with ads the bar is yellow And then the video came back and the bar is still yellow.”

How to fix the yellow YouTube bar

If you want to get rid of the yellow bar, you can refresh the page to get the classic red bar back either by pressing ctrl+shift+r button or hitting the refresh button in the top corner of the screen.
