It’s very annoying that some (or most) videos in youtube have advertisement played before you can watch the real video.
Some of those videos even doesn’t allow us to skip the ads after 5 seconds. Why do I want to waste 30 seconds to watch the ads just to watch a 1 minute video ?
To solve this, for those of you who are using google chrome, you can try chrome extension called AdBlock. To enabled blocking of youtube videos, you need to enable it in the settings (Settings >Extensions >AdBlock > options and tick ‘Block popup ads and ads in all videos and in Flash games. Beta’)
I’ve been using this for a week and it seems to work perfectly. Now I can save up a couple of minutes of my life.
