radar YouTube adds ads but won't pay all content-makers

Quote:
YouTube says it will start showing adverts on more videos - but won't necessarily pay the video-maker a cut.

The company currently shares ad revenue with video-makers who are enrolled in its partnership scheme, when it shows ads before or during their content.

But YouTube says it will start putting ads on some videos from channels that are not part of its partnership scheme.

Changes to its terms of service mean YouTube will not share the revenue from those ads with the video-makers.

It could also mean viewers see a higher number of adverts across the site.

There are several ways to escape ads as well as a lot of spam. The former is then to pay $10 a month the second is to add extension to the browser which does NOT belong to the Google family.

Default

Using a proxy server can sometimes get rid of adverts, e.g. using something like the "Epic Privacy Browser", and then switching it to Africa/India/USA etc.

Regularly clear your cookies and all that is stored about user behaviour.

Another idea is to put "youtube.com./" before the URL you want to visit, and exactly before the "watch" word, then reload.
E.g. when your URL is:
"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbbeR6VrSIs&lis ....."
you change it to
"youtube.com./watch?v=jbbeR6VrSIs&lis ......"
without hhtp and www, with a point after ... com.

Third idea is if you have a longer vid, go through the peril of meanwhile two or more adverts before the film starts, then slide the ruler to almost the end, let it load, and then slide back to the beginning - no in-film adverts this way.

What i "dislike" most is that meanwhile companies charge you more or less money for a certain item than your neighbour or someone else - depending on you order history, and what they found out about you.
Even if you found something yesterday for a certain price, it may have another tomorrow - for you. Sometimes even when having it stored in the favourites.

Free and open internet is dead.
