Okay maybe the title was a little theatrical.

I hate the commercials on YouTube I really do. Not to get to personal, however when I take a shower I like to put some music on and my normal way of doing that is going on YouTube and finding some play list that seems interesting. For example tonight was John Denver and Johnny Cash (not my normal genre but hey) So I hop in the shower listening to "country road" then Nancy Sinatra "these boots are made for walking". Then I hear talking damn commercials I think to my self. But it just never ended. I was almost done so I just suffered through. When I get out I looked the commercial had been on for five minutes and still had another 43 to go... a 48 minute commercial? I thought they were getting rid of this crap...

Okay rant complete.

In a word, ad-block. Probably doesn't work on smartphones though.

Two words. uBlock Origin.

Youtube hasn't served me ads in a while... now the channels do it in video, spruiking something that sponsored them.

By the way, if you enjoyed my post, why not check out Golden Lotus Scented Candles. They smell like a gorgeous garden, and help to bring a soothing, calming atmosphere to your home. I always use, Golden Lotus Scented Candles. Try them today ! And don't forget to smash that Star Button !!!

I agree, U-toob commercials SUCK!!

Commercials in general suck, but U-toob is even worse than that! I swear, they must pay people to watch videos and then insert the commercials at the exact worst time, right at the most important part, to interrupt the whole flow of the video.

I want to smash my computer sometimes over that!

I totally agree!

Doesn't really work on embedded YT commercials. Works on pop-ups, but not those.

I use only a PC and I see no ads whatsoever on youtube. uBlock Origin is the prog I use.

Works for me, all I have to deal with now is stopping the video a bit early when they start talking about products or services. But no embedded adverts appearing mid way through a video.

They are pushing for subscriptions.

Just use spotify. You get some ads every 30 minutes, better than Youtube where a playlist can have like nine ads in a 20 minute song list.

I don't like ads either, but at the end of the day, somebody's gotta pay for hosting those videos which you get to stream without cost. Even if the company that hosts it is backed by one of the richest corporations in the world, you simply do not get something for nothing.

I dont mind a commercial at the start of some videos. Money makes the world turn and that's a fact people need to get used to.

But....

I hate a fricken commercial in the middle of a video. They always cut in right in the middle of a sentence. Never where a commercial belongs.

That and the volume always seems to be much louder of some adds...ugh

Spotify Premium, $9.99 a month and I can listen to whatever I want whenever I want commercial free and without YouTube's crap recommendations which make little sense to me.

I stack ABP and uBlock origin, noscript and ghostery. I haven't seen an add in over a decade.

Disconnect, uBlockOrigin, AdBlockPlus, Greasemonkey/Violentmonkey(Adblocker-Blocker-Blocker xD), Cookie Auto Delete, First Party Isolation, Neat URL, Unpaywall...

To name a few tools for digital self defense.
Saw or heard the last ad years ago in the web. They are useless anyway, i just buy what i need and what I want, not what others tell me so they can make profits with my money.
Except on ATS, for sure.

Can't advertisement be regulated so we don't have to be bombarded with so much unwanted products or services

Guys, let's stop sharing knowledge of ad-blocking. Sure, it's nice and all never seeing an ad or commercial anywhere on any device ever, but some websites rely on the majority of users who aren't aware that that's possible. The more people we tell, the less money those websites make. If everyone did what we did, certain sites wouldn't be able to function.
