They've switched from one commercial which I could skip after 5 seconds if I wasn't interested to 2 commercials I can't switch before an 8 minute video. That's more ad seconds per minute than network television.

So for now I start video, mute the sound,

And then switch to a different window and pick another video.

For now, I have 4 videos staged up. I'm no longer watching or listening to the ads at all.

This is why we can't have good things.

Wait until you get an unskippable ad in the middle of the video you are watching.

Just to make it even better, imagine that the video you are watching is rather quiet, as the point is relaxation. And that the advertising is, well, you know how advertising is...

CNN’s fucking Capital One ads make me want to punch a hole in the wall.

I'm sick of trying to open an article to you know READ it, and autolay blaring from my phone after a minute or two, despite me having autoplay blocked >.>

Firefox + Addblock takes care of that.

I haven't seen an ad on Youtube in years thanks to Addblock Plus.

Links to the Chrome add-on but it's available for other browsers as well.
I use it for 10 years, watched thousands of Youtube videos and haven't seen a single ad.

You have the option to allow ads on pages if you desire.

I just leave it on the defaults and it’s fine.

But how will you know what good things YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE if not for adverts?
