So as you all might know I run a couple add-ins in Chrome – AdBlock+ and ScriptSafe. Well YouTube must have made a change because I have to allow the ad servers on their site. On a regular basis to the point where it is annoying.
I conjecture that it’s because YouTube is pushing the ad revenue thing a bit far.
Here’s America’s Test Kitchen on YouTube. Why it’s trying to hawk insurance to me and why it thinks I’m in Cranston is interesting.
To the point where I guess I’ll just go play some games and make sure I tag google and youtube in this post. Not too the clearly labeled as Ad to Remove Eye Bags with Dr. Oz. Sorry – calling him a Doctor is an affront to M.D.’s the world around. But you see my point. Here’s what I get just using Chrome:
Also too note the little yellow marker in the timeline – that’s an ad that played before the video and annoyed the piss out of me.
Notice what is missing.
Notice no ads at all.
So I decided – let’s be patient and wait. Sure enough – there’s a 5 to 30 second wait before videos start playing. Right at the point where I guess I’d see ads. Then in the videos about 3-10 minutes in the video will repeat the last few seconds. That’s where an ad would have been. Ha!
See -patience pays off.
