I want them to make use of the space around the video not over it. Once I can watch content in peace, I'll disable adblock on YouTube.

Also never understood long YouTube ads, most of the time, they've not even mentioned their name by the time I can skip it. They need to make more of an effort to squeeze a creative advert into 6 seconds. If Viners can do it, so can they.

Whoah whoah you all don't want to pay for youtube red? its a great service, super cheap, I use it all the time!

Which is what I would say if I felt it wasn't just a cheap copout and a load of nonsense! But wait it is adblock and ublock origins for the win!

Also if an ad does play when watching something on youtube, skip it if possible, and then back out of the video and go back in and the rest of the ads that might be present in the video will be gone least that works on the youtube app for xbox one and also works on my win10 pc

lol believe it when i see it.

Google can't even get YouTube to work correctly.

Google how about fixing what's broken first before adding anything new.

I also think that Google couldn't really care about fixing YouTube.
