Ever wanted to see what’s inside a classic Silver YouTube play button? I know the minute I got one I was going to take it apart to see how it was made and compare it to the previous model. This is that video…
Taking apart a silver Youtube button
The newer design for the original YouTube play button was introduced in 2017 I believe, having seen YouTube videos on how they were made, I had to see whats inside to compare the build and the quality to previous versions. I also know some of you guys like to make stuff too, so I took the time to measure up a few key sizes incase any of you guys out there fancy a project 🙂
Whats inside a silver play button
One big difference over previous years is the lack of color in the fonts. Gone also is the aluminium frame and steel fixing brackets that used to clamp the corners together. We now have a much easier and cheaper design to manufacture, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t look nice hanging on the wall. Thanks to all who subscribed.
