Youtube Ads SUCK Big Time..

Youtube your Ads SUCKS

Youtube Ads are obnoxious, loud, interferes in the youtube expected experience, everyone understand YouTube is a advertising revenue financed site, FREE for you to use but that doesn’t mean you are bombarded with more ads than the videos you watch on it, there are even overlay videos which even stop to you enjoy a video in full..WTH

It’s when advertising interrupts your common everyday vlog that gets to me. That’s the fault of the Partner program and YouTube’s current ad revenue model, though. Instead of allowing users to pay to have ads removed, people agree to have ads on their videos in exchange for being paid.

Adverts before the video wouldn’t be so bad.

But when an advert OVERLAYS the video you want to watch, several seconds AFTER the video starts, that ruins the continuity of the video itself. I want to watch it from beginning to end without being interrupted part way through with an advert for something. Weren’t the ads AROUND the video enough?

It’s seems just greed that everyone now a days agree with and the result of Google gaining a very dominant position on the Internet’s resources.

I would suggest using Bing instead. It’s NOT nearly as ugly, cluttered and VERY old like Google YouTube.

Actually Bing videos are clean, unobstructed and very beautiful. Best of all Micosoft is NOT interested in stealing EVERY ounce of your personal information for use of their service.. GOOGLE you score a pea in this area don’t just screw user experience..

Youtube has started placing advertisement into the system, it doesn’t seem to be voluntary, it’s forced view. We all understand the need for advertising, but I don’t like having to watch a thirty second commercial for every 1 minute clip I want to watch 😦 What you are going to see slowly is the quality of service going down while ads increase. Ads will increase so much it will become annoying to even be on YouTube just like watching cable..

YouTube announced it will be shutting down after eight years in business and will no longer accept videos. The news comes, of course, just before April Fools’ Day 🙂 you should have know it by now, it’s the annual prank day of Youtube.

It’s no secret that April Fools’ Day is a big part of Google and YouTube’s company culture and tradition. For example, YouTube did a throwback in 2011 to fake viral videos from 100 years ago and last year, the site said you could order all clips on DVD. In 2008, every video led to a a Rick Roll.

The company teamed up with The Onion to create a YouTube-star-studded video explaining how the site was set up as part of a contest to find the best home video on the Internet.

What do you think of this year’s prank? Which is the best you’ve seen on web today?


YouTube EDUcation Channels

Posted: March 4, 2012 in All Categories

With a bevy of new channels on YouTube popping up everyday, “Get your learn on at YouTube EDU,” says an erudite young student in a video promoting YouTube’s latest channels. Launched in 2009, YouTube EDU is a collection of more than 500,000 free videos from organizations and institutions such as PBS, Khan Academy and Harvard University.

Video questions come from educators at recently added channels: Deep Sky Video (astronomy), TED-Ed (a channel from the organizers of TED talks), Crash Course (an educational channel from The Vlog Brothers), the Sci Show and The Spangler Effect (famed science teacher). Each click will take you to a new screen.

Are you a brainiac? Join Professor Koval and his star pupil Olivia on a five question journey to see if you have what it takes to be a YouTube EDU star.

At the end of this video you’ll be asked the first question, which you should answer using the annotations embedded in the video. This will automatically take you on to the answer, and to the next question. Each of the five questions comes from a different YouTube EDU partner. At the end of the quiz you’ll receive your score (every score has its own reveal video, so play multiple times!).

Completing the quiz is a worthwhile effort — there are different endings depending on how well you do. What do you think ?
