    For a long time Adblock was one of the main reasons to root your device. There are now ways to enable adblock without root. There are even web browsers built to block ads. I have never been a proponent of adblock since it takes earnings away from the content creators I love. As a content creator myself I know the importance of well placed unintrusive ads.

    Google has finally figured out a way to bypass adblock for youtube. Now ads are treated as pre-clips so they are essentially baked into the video which means it is now impossible to avoid them. If you have adblock enabled you won't be able to skip ads. This could be a huge pain since some ads are over a minute long. If you wanted to skip ads you could still whitelist Youtube in your adblock. In a survey nearly 28% of participants claimed they use adblock. This means publishers could be missing out on 1/4th of their potential revenue.

    I think you've been using Adblock for too long ModderX. The longest UNSKIPPABLE ads on YT are still only 15 seconds. Never a minute. That would be way to long and I'd pretty much be done with YT if that were the case.

    Not true, I've seen an ad up to 3 minutes, the one with this guy Teio or telio or whatever his name is, showing off his Lamborghini and his books.

    I've been forcing adblock to detect the newest ads for quite some time, but as someone mentioned, the Xposed module works even better

    Totally true and I've argued this on another forum.
    YT would commit SUICIDE with 3 minute ads. I don't care who it is even if you LIKE ads, a 3 minute ad? A 3 minute ad would destroy YT. NO ONE is sitting through that.
    About 6 month to a year ago YT did add the UNSKIPPABLE ad that companies pay a premium for but this is limited to 15 seconds.

    Heh, YouTube ads are the one of the few things I root to get rid of. Luckily its still working in Chrome on Windows. No ads here.

    Anything longer than 20 seconds and I bail.
    I'm not going to watch 1 minute of crap to see a 3 minute clip.
    I watch my TV delayed so I can skip the ads.

    That module really sucks if you chromecast though, because the ad still plays on your TV, but the module gets rid of your "Skip" button in the YouTube app :p
