This is why I use adblock. I know it's not good for the creators but if I can't even watch a ten minute video without four ads, then 🤷🏻 I always donate to creators I really like to help offset it, though; I encourage everyone else to do the same. YouTube is falling apart and these awesome creators are suffering. If you watch someone a lot, consider donating to their patreon or the like.
@The Lifeguard, It’s only bad for creators if they are somehow able to comply with all YouTube’s absurd, incomprehensible rules and not be demonetized.
@The Lifeguard, you block the ads, and there's no way you donate to everyone you subscribe to, socialism is bad, you want everything for free and probably don't want to work for it, you are the reason the world is fuked, turn your ad block off, and probably take that mask off too
@butternut squash, Okay, boomer
@The Lifeguard, I'm 29😏
@The Lifeguard, OK, American
@butternut squash, YouTube has plenty of revenue.
They built a platform based on the premise of free service. If they’d been charging it’d have gone nowhere.
What they’ve done is the epitome of “bait and switch”.
Now, they’re just being greedy little bitches and if it weren’t for AdBlock, their platform would likely have already crumbled under its own dystopian weight.
@butternut squash, What the actual fvck are you talking about? Lifeguard basically said, "YouTube's getting greedy, support independent creators through other means." What's socialist about that? Is the poor multi-million dollar company going to lose revenue? Tough shjt, that's what happens in a capitalist economy. You start to do something your consumers don't like, they'll either ditch you or figure out loopholes.
@SimonPetrikov, Bro, don't bother. It's not worth the hastle.
@butternut squash, wait, did you really just fit an anti-mask statement into an anti-adblock statement? How do those correlate at all?
@butternut squash, You are so cringe haha why the fvck are you on this app
@Rudolph Schmidt , you’re a one hit wonder. “So cringe”. Find a new song, we’re sick of this one.
@big freedom, Oh is little salt boy still mad that i made you look like a moron in another post?
@butternut squash, so many dumb takes in one comment 😂
@butternut squash, that’s not what socialism is.....
Started with two. Told myself if they went to three or four and made them unskippable I'd get an ad blocker. Congrats YT, you pushed the line and now no ads are being watched.
I was paying for premium and it was great. I watched a ton of Youtube. I cancelled it and now I understand this hell. They are literally making the experience purposefully unpleasant to make a paid tier.
Also the youtube app on android is better.
@NotCaveJohnson, what was your reason for canceling?
@Sir Borksalot , I'm finding the actions of Youtube/Google increasingly troubling. Censoring videos and comments. I've observed my comments being shadow banned.
But I find it hard to stop watching the content creators. YT is very convenient way to watch and support independent creators.
Kind of a boycott, not doing a great job so far though.
The bit that gets me is if you’re having a playlist going and get two ads at the end of one vid and then two at the start of the next
@An Average Australian, i can deal with the short ads but now they're running ads that are 2-4 minutes long unless you manually skip. Ridiculous.
Ublock origin everyone
@Tazbrum, Can’t do that on mobile unfortunately.
@Weird Porn Stash, youtube vanced then.
@Weird Porn Stash, +1 for YouTube Vanced
@payton manning, That’s not on apple stuff
F*ck me, do I hate this. Four to five ads and I ain’t even halfway through.
@Shzeah, how about those hour long ads?
What's the point of skippable ads tho? They're not really effective if you can just skip them.
Though adding more adds is just mean and selfish. There is no better video sharing website (or app) than YouTube so they just take advantage since they know you'll still use it
@LazyLemon , Damn, someone that understands the purpose of ads. I never thought I'd see one. Also, are you an old lazy person or do you just like lemons 'cause i'm curious?
@Emp4th, I'm not old, but I'm lazy... and I'm a lemon ;)
Well I do like lemons but I prefer grapefruits, but lazylemon sounds better than lazygrapefruit
I’ve been a YouTube Premium subscriber from the beginning so I can’t relate to you peasants.
YouTube VANCED! Google it, you're welcome
Meh. Just back out of the video and restart it twice. Ads all gone
