Ratings and Reviews
Too many ads and too long
I love YT and understand it needs ad revenue but it is wasting my time and efforts to watch a YT video with frequent commercial ads and commercial ads that are just too long for a platform such as this. Most videos I watch are short and I am inundated with ads. There’s no enjoyment in that and then you must watch 2 lengthy commercials that you cannot skip through! A 5-second commercial ad I can handle; any longer and I’m not even watching the ads, though I have to waste my energy doing something else until I can view the videos. It becomes a mission to skip through the ads vs. watching a video. Then I just move on even though that ad is waiting for my return! There are ads that advertise products throughout browsing videos which catch my attention as they relate to my interests. The commercial ads have never induced me to watch nor buy what they are selling- ever - on TV, radio or elsewhere. In the old days it was time for chores; now I can prerecord! There must be a better way to determine length and amount of ads per length of video! This is a great platform and I am otherwise very happy to have YT to watch videos for my purposes.
Comments, ads, restrictions.
If the video goes into an ad then I lose my spot in the comments. Basically the app closes the comment section to make me focus on the ad. The ads have gotten ridiculous. What was wrong with having them in the beginning of the video. Now they’re just slapped everywhere. I may have 30 seconds left on a video and boom ad. When appropriate I’m fine with the restricting of ads. When appropriate I’m fine with age restrictions. I’m sick of hearing about videos being taken down without a legitimate reason. See thunderfoot’s video debunking coronavirus conspiracies. I’m sick of creators being removed because you disagree with them. Unfortunately I’m not sure where to start with this as they just disappear. Speaking of videos not appropriate for ads - why do I get ads that are not appropriate for all ages? I get ads that are just rap videos with the “n” word and “f” bombs thrown around every few seconds. These “ads” are talking about drugs and drive by shootings. Why is that ok? Oh, and now I get constant ads for Umzu- a “supplement” company. Why is it ok to market unproven drug claims? Haven’t creators been punished for doing the same?
Wow - I just tried watching a movie on here for the first time. I turn the movie on and immediately get “ad in 5 seconds.” Literally 1 minute plays and I get another set of ads. The ads are so frequent, even if short, that I can’t get into the movie. Won’t try this again.
Im triggered about the comment section
I hate the new update for the comments. I hate having to press something just to go trough the comments. I would rather scroll down then tap on the bar thing. I hate when the videos are really big i like it how it used to be. Please change it.
Hi again! I have some issues I would like to address! So on the Ipad im begging to have community posts able to be seen. Just make it like the phone but wider. Its stressing me how much I miss stuff because people normally post on the community post option. I have to go on my phone just to see it. Another one is PLEASE update the notification area. It use to be amazing before until you guys changed it. I am not going to lie but you people are ruining your app to the worst. I don’t wanna come off harsh or anything but it is very annoying. I am gonna keep my rating on 4 stars till you guys improve. For now it’s staying on 4. Another issue is the search thing glitch (i think glitch). It would just not let me delete my search or click on it. I have no idea why but i would like to no because its annoying me a lot.
I wanna say thank you for your time!
