I've had a 3 hour ad without a skip button on youtube before.
Yeah... Not fun.

A Adblock a day. Keeps the tampon ads away.

there is no accurate way to describe the rage ads buffering brings
#7 to #6 - byodensbeard (07/12/2013) [-]
Even more when it says "You can skip in 5 seconds" but then the buffer freezes it and i'm just "You lied, that was longer then 5 seconds".

Although adblock is convenient, I like to support the smaller sites by disabling it.

MFW i have a stable internet connection with 54 mb/s and i can't watch a video in 144p without it buffering every 5 seconds. Is there something wrong with youtube right now? Because this is happening to a lot of other people too

My internet connection isn't exactly great but I have no problems watching videos at 720p
#84 to #51 - John Cena (07/12/2013) [-]
Exact ******* same problem with me, the rest of the internet runs fine, but when I try to load a youtube video, there's like a 20 second delay sometimes before the video starts and then it loads like **** . I'm on a laptop, wireless, with century link, wtf is going on, I get so pissed off cause I can't fix it.
#112 to #51 - tehtrollface (07/12/2013) [-]
My computer runs youtube 1080p like a boss. no lag, just perfect hd youtube.
User avatar #116 to #51 - guiguito (07/12/2013) [-]
with 2mb you can stream 720p with no load or whatsoever
maybe steam is updating something, utorrent is sucking your bandwidth
just go to speedtest.net to see if you have at least 2mb
#127 to #51 - sniffythebird (07/12/2013) [-]
Yes, all my ******* rage...

Our internets has 4x as much bandwith (at least in download speed) as we used to have a few years back. Back then, I'd buffer 720p and 1080p no problem, and I could skip around the timeline in the video without it restarting the buffering. Now I can barely BARELY watch 360p without having it stop to buffer if I'm lucky. Not to mention, even if you wait and let the WHOLE ******* THING BUFFER and if you skip ahead in the video, it ******* LOSES WHAT YOU ALREADY BUFFERED AND HAS TO START OVER.

What the **** , youtube?! All they do is "update" the interface and layouts, while video performance (quality and buffer speed) gets worse and worse every few months. And do I have to mention all these ******* bugs that cause **** that worked before to not work anymore? For instance, clicking on the thing that makes the video bigger. Half of the time it doesn't ******* work. Changing video quality? Nothing happens unless you restart the video (unlike before where it immediately changed). Fullscreen? Half of the time the video gets all glitched with only sound playing.

I probably haven't even listed half of the problems youtube have gotten in the past few years.

Ok, I thought I was the only one having this problem, I rebooted my laptop and still I cant watch a 30 second video.
User avatar #57 to #51 - kookiefrankus (07/12/2013) [-]
Constantly trying to change YouTube to a new format or layout so who knows if they'll even bother to fix anything ever. Told them of fails and YouTube... YouTube never changes
#64 to #51 - alexanderh (07/12/2013) [-]
I've got roughly the same download speed, and I don't have any problems playing online, downloading games on steam, and watching 720/1080p youtube videos all at the same time, with 3 other people doing the same stuff at the same time. Oh, I'm also on TS with some friends as well.

Your connection either isn't stable, or you're not getting the speed you've been promised. Try taking a speedtest.
#125 to #64 - John Cena (07/12/2013) [-]
i have more than 100mb/s connection and i can't watch HD youtube videos without buffering... it's not because my net is slow, it's because youtube limit's speed on some videos
#129 to #125 - alexanderh (07/12/2013) [-]
Or because you're really unlucky, and have to go through a lot of nodes to get to the nearest youtube server.
#131 to #129 - John Cena (07/12/2013) [-]
maybe. it's still annoying

All hail the glorious adblock.

What are these "ads" you keep talking about?
#1 - yusatatsuaki (07/12/2013) [-]
I find the opposite happens, and is irritating as **** because I can turn down the quality on vid and that is okay, but can't on ad, so I am stuck waiting for the ****** to load in 1080p for 5 mins

What Edward Snowden said below me. Seriously, I don't know why so many people are unaware of Adblock Plus. Get on dat **** already, you funnijunkeez

When an ad pops up on youtube that I can't skip, I mute the video and then go to a random tab.



I refuse to give them my senses.

That CPU was the awesome PENTIUM. The 166 in the green display states that it was processing at 166MHz. It had a nifty button just above the power button(lowest button) that allowed for TURBO mode where the processor would often double its speed.

As you can see from the depressed button, TURBO MODE HAS BEEN ACTIVATED; STAND BY FOR ASTOUNDING SPEED.



Modern single-core processors go 16x faster

Am I the only one who DOESN'T use adblock? I don't because I like to support the people I watch (Nostalgia Critic, Cinema Snob, SSoHPKC, etc.). And honestly, it's 5-30 seconds of my life, so it's really nothing in the long run. I can see why people get annoyed but I just see little value in using it.
User avatar #79 to #32 - kyomaru (07/12/2013) [-]
I use it, but when it comes to that stuff, i add an exception to adblock so that the ads will play. I HAD to though, honestly, because the site would take 90 seconds to start a video instead of 30. got pretty annoying.
User avatar #55 to #32 - skiskate (07/12/2013) [-]
I see what you are saying, and it you want to support people you like by watching their ads thats up to you. But the thing about ad block it is used more to avoid annoying audio ads and flashing gifs that are mainly scams or surveys trying to get you to sign up for stuff. Ad block is amazing because at the click of a button you can turn ads on or off.
User avatar #56 to #55 - darkangeloffire (07/12/2013) [-]
That's a reason I might use adblock. But other than that I personally prefer not to. If people use adblock, it's not my issue.
User avatar #75 to #32 - thewaronbeingcool (07/12/2013) [-]
Most content creators get payed for the amount of people who click on the ad, not those who see it.

I never click on ads ever. If anything, seeing an ad makes me not want the product because I hate ads. So they wouldn't be making money from me in the first place, so I don't see why I have to sit through an ad for a piece of **** I'm not interested in and will never buy.
User avatar #80 to #75 - darkangeloffire (07/12/2013) [-]
I have no idea how it works. All I know is that, in the big picture, watching an ad is a minor event so I see no reason to personally have ad block. You use it, good for you. I don't, and I really don't want to.

I just use youtube to listen to music.
And horse mating videos. And male horses/donkeys having sex with other male horses/donkeys.
User avatar #134 to #118 - newposterintown (07/12/2013) [-]
They have those on Youtube?
User avatar #136 to #135 - newposterintown (07/12/2013) [-]
...I'm not sure about this...
User avatar #140 to #138 - newposterintown (07/12/2013) [-]
Well, that they could be.
User avatar #139 to #138 - newposterintown (07/12/2013) [-]
Huh. Didn't know that horses were homosexual.
User avatar #142 to #139 - heartlessrobot (07/12/2013) [-]
Homosexuality in the animal kingdom is almost as common as heterosexuality.
And have you seen a horses cock? Other male horses definitely have. That's why they're gay.
User avatar #143 to #142 - newposterintown (07/12/2013) [-]
What, do you mean exclusively, or just sexual encounters?
User avatar #145 to #143 - heartlessrobot (07/12/2013) [-]
Often it's sexual encounters. Many animals don't distinguish by sexuality and just stick it in whatever lets them when they're horny.
User avatar #146 to #145 - newposterintown (07/12/2013) [-]
I figured that much. Interesting, didn't know all that. Thanks!
User avatar #147 to #146 - heartlessrobot (07/12/2013) [-]
I know more about horse-buttsex than is probably considered normal.
