Ads on linked videos

For the past few weeks, I have been seeing ads across the bottom of videos. I think itís only on Youtube videos? They can be xíd off but itís still annoying. And the x is really small!

I donít know if itís related to the recent glitches? They seem to be the same ads that pop up on DU when Iím not logged in, not the usual ads that play before videos on Youtubeís site and app.








ETA: I loaded the video in the pic twice in order to get shots of two different ads. Once an ad is xíd off, another ad does not pop up.

1. That would be youtube inserting the ads.

While the video-style ads observe your ad preferences, these popup-inserts do not.

2. AdBlock solves that problem.
