    Default Youtube advertising is getting out of control

    YouTube - GHOST OF GIRL CAUGHT ON CAMERA MOVING TRU SOLID WALLS

    Ignore the subject and just look at this for example's sake of the ridiculous sort of youtube advertising they've got. I can't even see what's on the fucking screen. I'm so sick of it.

    idiots.
    I agree that there is too much advertisement shit on youtube these days. this
    person most likely posted the video for that reason--to advertise their
    religious bullshit.

    creepy vid btw.

    Those aren't advertisments, those are captions put there by the person who uploaded them.

    The Youtube Google ads aren't too intrusive imo

    ^yep, advertising none the less. captions are useful in some instances
    though. what I am not a fan of is when those ads on the bottom of the video
    come up and you have to close out of them to see what's happening.

    It reminds of trying to watch the comedy network here in canda (comedy central for you yanks)... they have seriously long bouts of commercials, and then when the show resumes, they start popping shit up on 1/4 of the screen, advertising shit IN THE SHOW.. it's bad enough that if there's subtitles or something in the show, you cant fucking read it, or if something happens on the corner of the screen, some stupid flashing advert is blocking it. Seriously. 1.4 of the screen is gone. It's so fucking IRRITATING.

    HEllo, you have commercials. Do you really need to fucking advertise IN THE SHOW too?
    I am from the American CIA and I have a radio in my head. I am going to kill you.

    ^^ That reminds me of what life was like before the HD channels popped up in Oz. Now if you turn over to the HD channel it doesn't show the giant pop up ad that is currently displaying on the same show on the regular SD channel. Mwa ha ha.

    YouTube's just out of control, period. You see some of the things the people there post, in the comments? With the comments, YouTube's just as bad as IMDB, if not worse, because the comments on YT aren't censored. LOTS of unnecessary homophobia and racism, there. It's unbelieveable.

    As for the advertisements, they don't really bother me, but they do lag the video a little bit, and that does bug a little. As for the annotations (the captions you can put on your video)... yeah, unless they're really necessary, which is hardly ever.... yeah, those things SUCK.
