New Update Time!

Oct 26, 2017
Does anyone still read the blog? Well that doesn't matter as you're reading it now! Yes, these things have already been announced ages ago but it's about time the old blog got an update in more than a month. So, here's what's new:

Achievements! (Get notified for what you've accomplished!)
Simple update that tells you what you've achieved while supplying a bit of trivia about your own channel! Pretty cool, isn't it?

Themes! (Be stylish!)
Yes. Customize Vidlii to your desires without the need of an extension. Go crazy! Make themes for other people to use or use ones people have already created!

Awards! (You're on the records!)
Get awards for what you've achieved on Vidlii! Are you the #3 most viewed of this week in Gurus? Then display it loud and proud! Be proud that you are the #3 most viewed this week in Gurus.

Cosmic Panda! (Blast off into nostalgia!)
Ahh, 2012. When the world wasn't hellish. The peak of YouTube. Everything was going great. The Cosmic Panda channel layout was released with all sorts of backlash because people hate change. Well that and it was forced. We don't force it! It's completely up to you if you want to use the Cosmic Panda layout. (I like it.)

Now that we've told you all about these updates... why are you still reading this??? Go out there and use what we've just told you! Now enjoy the rest of your day or something!

New Comments Section!

Sep 20, 2017
I'm sorry for the late post again, but here it is:

So you might have noticed a change. That's right! A new comments section!
The new comments section has a new design and features to go along with it.
Some of these features have been highly requested, and we've listened!
Here's what's new:

Replies! You can now reply to a comment without having to mention the user. Not only is this better to use, it's easier to use for any newcomers who may find their way on to VidLii. It also doesn't cause a mess when it comes to comments as everything is neatly sorted in the new replies feature.

Top comments! Top comments have found their way on to Vidlii after being abandoned for years. The new (or should I say old... new? new's a pretty good buzzword so I'll go with that) top comments feature now shows the top 2 most liked comments at the top.

Channel icons are now in the comments section! Self-explanatory.

Again I apologize for the late post. I hope everyone reading this has a good day. :)

The new player has gained the ability to be customized with any color you'd like!
Change the progress bar color. Change the button color. The options are endless!

The days & Weeks ahead

Jun 15, 2017
It's been a bit since the last blog post and I thought I'd let you know about the future of this website.

First of all I want to thank the users who use VidLii and motivate me to add new and exciting features.

The main features that were recently added are:
- Channel Backgrounds
- Channel Title, Description and keywords
- Avatar Uploads and Filters
- Channel Comments
- Other smaller things.

That's quite a bit for 3-4 days, so you can probably imagine how feature-rich VidLii is going to be in a month.
Here's some things I'm currently working on and will be released soon:
- Channel Transparency
- My Videos Page
- Playlists
- Featured Channels
- Bulletins
- Channel 2.0
- VidLii API

Also expect the VidLii design to change during that time to something better since the current design is based on the 2006 YouTube design and is limiting my ability to add new things.

NEW UPDATE & Why the name change?

Jun 11, 2017
First, lets start with the good news:
The site has been completely rewritten because the old code just couldn't be worked with.
That means that most of the things you complained about during the last 5 days is probably fixed or improved. Some of the changes are:
1. Featured | Recently Viewed pages now work.
2. Pages go up to 10 now.
3. Profile now work like "/user/VidLii" instead of "profile?user=vidlii"
4. Way more channel customization options (MORE TO COME).
5. Better video quality (Max filesize is now 350MB).
6. More file types supported.
7. Uploader has been improved.
8. Categories have been added.
9. A better looking friends tab.
10. HTTPS
11. UTF-8 character support
12. Some images are now in much higher quality

Those are some of the changes I can think of right now. Since that update was somewhat of an emergency there may be a few bugs which you can report to me in the discord:LINK

Now to the bad news: VidBit had to be renamed to VidLii due to threats of being sued due to me selling the previous version of VidBit to someone who apparently counted the name and logo "vidbit" as an asset.

For now vidbit.co still redirect to vidlii but that may change in the future.

Thanks to the community for staying loyal.
