It was awesome.
Now, I go on YouTube to watch videos that are only a minute long, and I am subjected to commercials. 30-second commercials. 15 second commercials. Commercials I can skip. Commercials I can’t skip.
What the fuck?
I get that YouTube needs to make money. It takes a shit ton of electricity and energy to run all the servers to deliver all that HD goodness quickly around the world. That stuff doesn’t pay for itself.
But where is the line between convenience and profit? Why am I forced to pay attention to a boring commercial that is almost as long as the video? And why can I skip some commercials, but I’m forced to watch other commercials entirely?
Just make up your damn mind already YouTube. Either make us watch these crappy commercials, or don’t. And whatever you choose, be clear about it to us, the users.
For the love of God, just let us watch our cat videos in peace.
