How to Remove ads from YouTube videos


As YouTube’s popularity begins to grow , the site is busy introducing new methods to generate revenue . Currently YouTube deploys three types of advertisements on all its videos to generate revenue , which are :

  1. Text ads
  2. In-stream video ads
  3. Image ads

These ads generate millions of dollar for YouTube and its uploaders on a daily basis . While YouTube viewers are comfortable with text and image ads , in-stream videos ads on the other hand are not preferred by a lot of YouTube users . The same even applies for me . But actually advertisements are a necessary evil . So you should not disable ads on YouTube unless you don’t want to discover new products and services .

Officially there are no options to disable advertisements on YouTube videos , unless the uploader of the videos has not opted in for the revenue sharing program or disabled advertisements on his/her videos . But unofficially you can remove videos from YouTube ads by simply installing the Adblock plus extensions in web browser . Download and install Adblock from the links below for your respective web browser and you will be able to remove ads from all videos across  YouTube , Facebook and many more websites .
