Whats up with youtube ads

by outwest 9 replies
I notice almost all of the vids I pull up now have 30 sec ads
preceding them

I refuse to watch them and you cant go past the ads

I think this is a prime example of Googles arrogance and stupidity
killed the golden goose

would not be surprised if youtubes traffic plummets

    I Hate that
    It is really forcing people to watch their ads
    Just like cpalead gateway

    Some will say, but they must make money too

    Yes that is right, But damn, we run from TV To Youtube

    At least in my country I can skip the ad once I get to 5 secs of the ad.

    I want to watch NBC news here in Manila
    every story has a 30 sec ad preceding it

    but the ads lock up
    so it takes 5 minutes for the ad to play sometimes

    so now I go to yahoo news
    it has no ads

    I refuse to surf online and watch 30 sec ads I cant turn off
