YouTube: April Fool’s Day Joke (ǝʞoɾ s,looɟ lıɹdɐ : ǝqnʇ noʎ)

Today Youtube is showing videos Upside Down. When you open the Home page of Youtube and go to any video you will get a page which is flipped upside down. If you are doing so first time this will be default. But the next time you open other videos you will not get it.

If you do not get this type of page then you can activate it by adding a small code &flip=1 at the end of the URL. For an example when you open http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuQykKXQLfA then you will get the original Youtube page, and when you open http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuQykKXQLfA&flip=1 you will get the Upside down page.

There are some tips provided by Youtube to view such videos the right way and they are:

1. Turn your monitor upside-down: Our internal tests have shown that modern computer monitors give a higher quality picture when flipped upside down — kind of like how it’s best to rotate your mattress every six months. You might find that YouTube videos look better this way.

2. Tilt your head to the side: Imagine you’ve got water in your ear and need to get it out. Tilt your head toward one shoulder and watch the video (gentle head-smacking on the opposite side is optional).

3. Move to Australia: As you probably know, everything in Australia is upside-down, so moving to Australia may provide you with a more natural YouTube viewing experience. (Note: If you live Down Under, and the page is still upside-down for you, then we recommended moving to the northern hemisphere.)

So, the next time you don’t want Youtube to make a fool out of you, then watch the URL and remove &flip=1.
