    Youtube YouTube

    Is it me or have YouTube turned up the volume to 11 with adverts since Christmas. I thought it was a seasonal thing but its now the 9th of January and it hasn't stopped. Every video I click now has an intro advert as well as adds in the middle and popups. It's really starting to get on my tits.

    Agreed mate. They started doing it when they launched their paid service.

    "We have a new paid service, so we're making our free service as shite as possible."

    Cynical.

    Thanks to flumperino

    Looks like AdBlock has been disabled for YouTube... normal service has been resumed

    I used Ublock too. ABP jumped in to bed with the advertisers and now display "selected" adds on most websites. They can get fucked.
