Youtube And Advertisement

I'm kind of a big fan of youtube. Not so many of my friend enjoy youtube as I do. I enjoy it much with my TMnet streamyx 4mb package. Lots of people said the connection sucks but as long as I can watch youtube without waiting for buffering and play my xbox live, I'm good with it.

When people busy logging into the internet and check their facebook status, I log into the internet to watch new video from my subscribe channel. I enjoyed watching Smosh, Nigahiga, Ray william johnson, Wongfu, some science channel, cooking channel, and a lot more in youtube. I believe that youtube is kind of a TV for me. Almost everything including commercial I can watch with a click.

The best thing is you can choose whatever you want to watch and there is no waiting for a commercial to end like in the television. ... Wait.. Is it?

Recently I found some disturbing changes in youtube. I don't mind youtube sticking a few ads here and there inside their page but this time I'm really disappointed because youtube put an advertisement video for every video that I click.

There is a button that you can click to skip the ads but you have to wait like 5 seconds before that button appear. Means you still have to wait 5 seconds before you can watch your clicked video. 5 seconds is such a waste of time for me.

What is wrong with youtube? Isn't they had enough money from the conventional ads they use to have? Why must they interrupt my initial 5 seconds and force me to click second time to skip the ads? I hate it so much.

I believe google keeps their page looks less advertising by selling keywords and keep everything simple. That is what people like about google. I thought youtube is under google now and why youtube can't find better way to sell their ads? Not stealing 5 seconds from their users.

So disappointed with youtube. I hope that they find a better solution to sell their ads. If it maintain like this, I may let youtube go in the future.

  1. I was annoyed by the short ads on the opening of the video in youtube. It reminds me of megaupload video. I guess YouTube marketing is getting more and more responsive lately so they decided to do so but the good part of YouTube now is that they had launch it in Malaysia and so I'm sure more and more local Youtubers will rise up and try to earn a living out of the ads revenue :)

  2. Yeah. Sure. Launch in Malaysia. The worst part is after it was launch in Malaysia, when you click the link Popular which supposed to bring you to the popular video today and all it has there is Malaysian political video. Ucapan anwar lah, protest israel lah. annoying.
