I think it's nice to be able to have one playing on the page while I read posts.

Gotta upgrade sometime to keep up... Actually music videos will replace links because it keeps you on site and removes steps.

Youtube has implemented some new changes from what I can tell, that causes the videos to take longer to load - there is so much behind the scene rubbish going on.
So much so that I've turned on the Advanced settings in uBlock Origin and am turning off all third party elements and scripts for it, helps a little.
Youtube, facebook, and a few other places have become so bogged down with crap it renders my PC unusable at times. I have to task-kill firefox. And no other browser is free of it either. Maybe a light gain for the loss of addons I refuse to go without.
I avoid the music threads here, especially if they ask for contributions, as my PC crawls to a halt. Sure it's not the best machine, but only in the past few months has it really gotten bad.
What we've made up for by getting away from atrocious free websites where everyone had 5 music videos playing on top of 1000 animated gifs and frames, we've made worse with so many damned third party scripts. Every page has google crap tied to it that makes no difference to the page rendering in the end.
And to be honest, if I break a page because I limit the bandwidth to it when the content appears there, but the page continues to load for another 60 seconds, then it is no loss to me, I'll happily avoid badly coded web pages...
