This is new on You Tube
Starting this morning, even though I have ad blocker and have never had to be bothered by ads since I installed it, every video I try to watch starts with an ad. I can't just do a playlist and listen while I do other things, because I have to click to skip the ad at the beginning of each video before it will play.

Word is that content creators won't make any revenue from these ads and even creators that have been demonetized or have opted out of monetization will be subject to these ads. This will affect small content creators like cat videos as well as huge creators like Pewdie Pie and Styx.

One more step towards the demise of good content on the platform.

Fuck You Tube.

Maybe not for playlists, but to get rid of commercials during a longer vid..

Replace watch?v=

with embed/

that / is important, don't forget that.

It will be like this, almost full screen, without being full screen, and no commercials.

I do that for documentaries, and people I follow like gardening and cooking blog things.

it also gets rid of comments and chat of course.. but works great for most longer things I watch on there. lol

Re: This is new on You Tube
I will find a workaround, but the part that pisses me off is that they can demonetize a channel without justification, and now they can embed ads on those same channels and make money off the content when the content creator gets nothing.

They don't want us finding the good stuff on you tube because it just highlights how bad mainstream entertainment has become and makes more people seek out independent content. They don't like that some guy with a web cam is getting more views and likes than their blue checkmark "stars".

I have followed some creators to those sites, but a lot of other things I like are just on you tube. There are some good documentaries, music, concerts and audio books that are not on those other sites. Most of the alternatives don't do live streams either.

Youtube has become too corporate

It's no longer about giving ordinary people a video platform, which was the original idea

There needs to be a new youtube, something that actually promotes small creators instead of exploiting them for money!

Re: This is new on You Tube
Now it appears that comments sections have been disabled on every channel I have visited this morning. This is how people communicate with the content creator, and sometimes the comments are even more fun than the video. I hope this isn't permanent because if it is this is another blow for independent content and freedom of expression.

Looks like comments sections are back, but when I try posting one I get a message that my comment is subject to moderation before it will be posted.

Nope. These are channels I have been subscribed to for years. Most of them demonetized so I send them donations to keep them going. What they want is for me to view channels that push the narrative or feed me crappy hollyweird re education disguised as entertainment.

Re: This is new on You Tube
OP, if you block yourself from advertising, how will you know how to think about things?

Ads teach us liberal ideologies and through repetition they become permanent in our thought patterns. Things like transexuality, and non-binary interracial bonding, males with female voices, respecting female dominance, and pharmaceuticals that free us from gravity so we can smile and dance in slow motion..

You'll be missing all the secular mind training and society might just leave you behind.

Think about this before you make your final choice.

You might need the ads to function in modern society.
