    Great collection my dear friend, Thanks for sharing with the community. Though personally i would love people see the ads as whenever we share our videos on youtube then this is a simple method to add some extra money in our pocket.

    Brilliant tip. There are a irritants when watching YouTube vids and one of them are the ads when you start the videos. I will check the plugin, its worth paying for it as well to skip those ads.

    Hi there. Nice post, but when it comes to FireFox I would personaly recommend Adblock Plus. It doesn’t only block the ads inside the YouTube video but also the ads that appear near the video. As every ad takes time to load this is the best solution for FireFox.

    Its a great list. BTW I’ve been using ABP in my chrome from a long time and I find it cool too.

    Optionally, to skip the ads, you can just replace “youtube” with “youtubeskip” in the URL of any video.
