Don't you just hate YouTube's ads?

Really? 30 second ads for a 10 second video?

UStream ads, you mean? YouTube ads are usually just the Google AdSense variety that take up the lower 3rd or less of the screen. UStream ads are invasive, launching with sound before one can mute the stream and running for ages before you get the content you really want.

Or maybe it's just me... ;-)

Yup, I try to avoid Ustream altogether now just because of the video ads.

Same for me. One morning at about 2 am I had my volume up full blast and I went on to Chris's stream when an anime ad came on blaring for a full 30 seconds, volume controls were disabled and I woke up the entire house. Hate it.

There are ways to circumvent the ustream ads, but I cannot release the information to the public.

ads come with the fact that youtube is free! if you dont like ads on any video pay to sign up for a site that does not post ads.

The YouTube ads I don't care about. All you have to do to skip the video ones is press F5.

I know! soon before watching every video there will be an ad. It makes me angry. Youtube is a site where you upload videos for people to watch! not watch ads its so stupid.
