McKnull, 18 Feb 2017You have that to your phone or what?
I am using AdBlocker as well but to my phone the 30 secs... moreYes you can get it for phone too it's YouTube AdAway. This is a simple module to help you get rid of ads on the official YouTube App, it also supports YouTube TV/Gaming/Kids
I never had any youtube ads on my Nubia Z11 thanks to wanam the author!
The NonSkipable Ads for more than 30 seconds is happening in India only I think? it was really irritated when I was in India.
I do understand that Youtube basically offers content hosting in exchange for ad views, but I DON'T DO ads, none, in any format, no exceptions - so that leaves us with a bit of a problem. Not so large of a problem right now considering adblockers let me literally never see an ad, but a problem nevertheless. If the issue gets forced in the future, I will do whatever it takes to not actually see those ads - I'm pretty sure there'll always be a way, and no matter how extreme, I'll be using it. And yes, I would be willing to pay a modest sum in exchange for ad-free-ness, but it would have to be 100% ad-free and a really modest sum indeed...
Use adblocker plus extinction on google chrome or any other browser store. Problem solved for PC.
As long as the dont put 60 second ads on videos that are less than 2 min Ill be ok with this change
It angers me to no end when im going to watch a 47 second video and I have to watch a 30 second ad....grrrrr
Sorryplease, 18 Feb 2017So one must think u have uninstalled it months ago at least. Never ever saw 30 second unskipable ad at least on my phone. The longest I have seen is 10 seconds.
Anyone here ever used similar Chinese video sharing/streaming websites? 60 second unskippable ads at the beginning of every video. Absolute nightmare.
I NEVER EVER watch those ads,the more they advertise the brand the more I hate that brand. I never click on banners, never going to force me into anything. Yeah, I'm marketing people's worst nightmare....
Anonymous, 18 Feb 2017If I see 30 second add I will skip the video and uninstal youtubeSo one must think u have uninstalled it months ago at least.
Very good. veeeeeery good. I just wish I never see an ad. But it won't happen lol.
I simply reload the video 1-2 times in a row. The easiest way to skip those ads.
HeartGold69, 18 Feb 2017Here's an answer for there ads ---> (Ad Blocker)Sometimes there is no video but only audio when addblock is active in YouTube.
I have Firefox on my phone. I configured it to always open the full desktop version of all sites.
Open this page:
Find and change this to 0.8 (it's -1 by default, you might have to try out different values because phones have different screen resolution so they need different value, because websites check the screen resolution/browser width to align the page, you might also have to rotate the phone):
Set a desktop user agent too.
Install Fit Text to Width addon.
I also installed Ublock Origin. So I watch the full desktop version of youtube without ads.
I don't understand why do people use specific apps of websites instead of visiting them through the browser.
