    Posted: 29 Nov 2011 at 10:09pm
I have extremely slow internet speed, and God forbid I want to watch a 3 minute video, right? Well, before every video I want to watch, there's always those 5-second commercials. I wouldn't mind hearing about Betty White's "Hot in Cleveland" or whatever the f*ck it's called, IF THE DAMN THING WOULD LOAD!!! But these integrated ads are making it so that the video loads FIRST, while I have to wait 15 minutes for the 5-second ad to play. Cry /rant
 
And by the way, I was trying to watch 2NE1's English version of "Can't Nobody" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQEabAesufg).
 
Either their demographics ratings are way off, or fans of edgy Korean girl groups really like Betty White. LOL

Oh, I know. I hate those, so I avoid any "official" videos because those always have the ads. I have a slightly higher tolerance lately because I watch LiveStream, but it still irritates me.
Please, stop saying "Awesome" in commercials! Your actors are not awe-inspiring and neither is your product.

I still remember when the Internet was a safe haven to watch videos without having to be tortured by ads. I hope whoever invented integrated ads knows they destroyed a once-beautiful aspect of the Internet.

2NE1 has a video for the English version?
 
The ads are really annoying. I wouldn't mind if they were actually helpful (watch this ad while your video loads, so you don't have to wait every millisecond while it randomly stops to keep loading).
 
Honestly, I just download PVs now-a-days. Yeah, I have to wait 30 minutes sometimes, but I can watch it whenever I want, it never gets 'pulled' due to copyright, and I can watch it on anything without quality suffering (like downloading a flv from youtube, converting it to another file, then having it re-converted to fit properly on a certain device.)

Hating it. Once I tried watching an episode of Dexter's Lab and--AD POPS UP!!! 

I want to destroy ads. But then I can't watch shows online or in real life.

Yes. It is really pretty annoying, that is why we developed a software to remove these ads while a video is playing on the background  -  http://download.cnet.com/Block-Youtube-Ads/3000-7786_4-75742538.html. Work wells with Firefox and Chrome too.

Try it out and let me know your thoughts.

You are very right , such type of problems commonly seen when anybody have a low speed internet connection Cry and he wants to watch you tube video, i can't do that for your slow speed connection but i can disable your adds and i am sure when adds will be disable then you will feel little bit comfort. To disable youtube ads just go to internet and download  http://www.blockyoutubeads.com - Youtube ad blocker  from internet and install it on your PC. That's it with these 2 steps you have get rid of you tube ads completely. Now when you will visit the youtube site you will be surprise to see that all the adds have been disappeared. Clap
