    Is it just me or is YouTube having another blast of ads? Like how many refreshes or tabs must I do to see one video? Fuck! It's even worse when some can't be skipped or takes the whole duration making the skip useless. Damn you ads!

    I almost always watch ads to support the content creators. I'm a grateful leech.

    The number of ads and the longer, unskippable ads have increased for me.

    I have noticed an increase of unskippable 5s+ ads...
    I even had a 15 and a 30 sec unskippable ad once...

    What's worse is that when I'm not on my PC and am trying to enjoy a mix playlist of music, there are suddenly ads in-between... Which just ruins the mood completely

    *Disables U-Block Origin to watch a video on Youtube.*

    YT proceeds to shove two unskippable ads down my throat.

    I used to disable adblock for Youtube but now I only do it for Youtube channels that I like.

    Get the brave browser. Has a built-in adblocker that works great.

    They have gotten really, really, really comfortable with longer, unskippable ads. By the way, anyone else getting a lot of, Rise of Kingdoms, ads.

    My experience is that Twitch is worse with ads than YT is.

    I use the opera gx browser and it has a built in ad-blocker and vpn so I don't have issues on my laptop. On my phone however, I didn't notice much change other than the fact that I get two unskippable ads in a row sometimes.

    They're usually only like 5 seconds and there's never more than two. Why not just wait 10 seconds instead of wildly refreshing and opening new tabs for 7 seconds?

    Ads are annoying but I’ve somewhat got used to them. Though the random ad in the middle I find stupid. What’s really annoying me now is when I’m listening to something as I work and the video stops. When I go to YouTube there’s a pop up that asks if you want to sign in. Wtf man why you interrupting me for that? If I wanted to sign in I would have done it when I went on to YouTube~
