    Hi all this thread for everyone that hates YouTube advertisement it is pointless and annoying nobody cares go away LEAVE ME ALONE.

    I especially hate those advert that last 30 to minute which you can't skip and those pop up one that you either wait for or click the delete.

    Has anyone else feel like throwing out your monitor to that passer bye that happen to get hit.

    It's even more annoying if the ad is the trailer for some stupid horror movie

    Some ads are bearable. I don't mind the ones where you can just click the "x" to hide them or the ones you can skip. I hate the ads that aren't related to what I'm watching and can't be skipped. In fairness though, the ads on youtube aren't as ridiculous compared to TV. It's like an advert every 10-15min for 5 even 10 min long.

    Adblock Plus, get it. Works with Firefox and Chrome, however, I haven't figured out a way to block video ads in IE yet.

    I thought you meant the ads in YouTube using a desktop PC browser.

    Are you people aware that YouTube content is created by individuals like yourselves? They make a small amount of revenue if you watch the ads or click them.The advertising is way classier than the garbage on cable TV. You PAY over $100/month to be force-fed 18 minutes of commercials per 42 minutes of actual show for cable TV. Just like how the movies start 20-25 minutes late and they advertise after you've already PAID them. YouTube is free and you are throwing your monitors out the window for a tiny amount of advertising and resorting to ad blockers? For an hour's worth of YouTube entertainment you probably only watch 5 minutes of pre-roll commercials. How do you think YouTube and all those content creators make money?

    It's incredibly annoying when you want to watch a 1 minute video and you've got a 30 second ad. I'm all for the content creators making money, but having ads that are nearly as long as the videos just isn't right. Plus, you can usually skip the ads after a few seconds anyway and the video creator doesn't get any money if you do that. So I'd rather get rid of the ads that I never click or watch through anyway.

    The difference is whether cable TV or broadcast TV, it is possible to DVR the program and then skip all the ads.
