Do you like YouTube? I guess you do. But there is something common among every YouTube user – they don’t like the ads interfering with their video viewing experience. The boring advertisements that are showcased before almost every video on YouTube, really gets irritating at times.
Well, here’s the funny thing. Some advertisements run for almost 30 seconds without having an option for skipping the promotion video. Now that is frustrating for everyone out there. There are ads that are played before the actual video then there are ads that pop up above the control section of the player.. and there are ads that appear magically almost everywhere on the screen.
While I can accept a reasonable amount of advertising, this kind of overkill really irritate many. So is there a way to skip all these ads? Yes there is!
An application called as ScrewAds is designed to save you from the ad nightmare on YouTube.
ScrewAds is pretty easy to use. Start with installing the app from the Chrome store – which automatically gets installed on your browser like any other Chrome app does.
It starts functioning with the launch of your browser ever time and starts skipping ads on videos of YouTube. Now there’s something to be noticed here. As soon as you install ScrewAds you may see some new tabs above the video player, and these are the actual controls that does the tricks.
You are provided with three options over the hood with the ScrewAds and they are:
As you can see, there are some more apps under the “related” tab on the Chrome store for this kind reason that is blocking, avoiding, and skipping ads on the YouTube. I would like to list them here as well, and here they are the most popular once.
- Skip ads on YouTube: After installing this, you may see a “play” button on top, which skips the add.
- Adblock Plus: Also pretty clean in skipping ads on YouTube.
Install ScrewAds and then let us all bow our heads and mourn the death of ads on YouTube.
