    On the forward and back buttons on youtube, the bottom blends in too much. I'd say the color is too strong, but it depends on how the theme is on a whole so I'll hold that til later. I don't really like the gloss but that's a personal preference. They could use a drop shadow and the bevel also blends a bit as well.
    Are you gonna make them 60x60?

    I'm not a big fan of gloss, of course there are exceptions. I have a feeling the bricks aren't going to be very apparent when you scale it.

    blue gradient is much too strong, linear would be better than radial

    the bottom bevel is too strong, lighten it up, reduce the size

    almost all the shadows you've implemented have been much too strong reduce the size, and possibly change the blend mode.

    scrubber on youtube is squashed a bit, it looks like an oval rather than a circle

    gloss should not be a fill layer with reduced opacity, instead it should fade a bit, with a gradient.

    like vince said, there should be a drop shadow on your base.
