Yeah, that's a drag...but at least the ones with the ads tend to be of better quality.

Youtube, don't let teenagers post videos!  They always suck!!

Yes, this pisses me off too. The Internet was a nice place to watch videos, until some jerk came up with the "integrated ad" technology.

How long before Internet videos are just as bad as mainstream TV (if not worse, considering sites typically use the same ad for the longest time, as opposed to the variety on regular TV)?

I just mute them and look away.  Take that, stupid internet ads.

What I really hate are the radio-style audio ads that play after some videos. I especially hate the deep punchy voices they always use.

When I watch full episodes on Hulu or the network site, this frustrates me, even when I tell myself that it's only one 30 second commercial. If I were watching it on TV I'd have to sit through another five or six of 'em.

I just like the instant gratification of it all, and not having to worry about any commercial.

I love AdBlock plus, but there are some flash ads it can’t get rid of, so I also installed the Stop Autoplay plugin, which just leaves a blank screen with a play button where it would otherwise play the ad. That’s the nice thing about computers. You can sabotage any and every attempt for advertisers to seize control.

It wouldn't be so bad if some the ads weren't so obnoxious:

Agreed with the parodies. Also, how about trying to find a certain song and finding only a million badly done covers by some random guy with a guitar?

I was watching something full screen on YouTube which didn't have an ad before it played.
 
I wanted to check something else out while it was playing, so I came out of full screen to the regular window, then in the middle of the video I was watching an ad played. 
 
Then it resumed the video where I left off.

Luckily, when we post videos here, the ads go away.
 
I just hope the day doesn't come when I find the commercial I want to post here, but have to watch another ad before it.
