I was just on youtube watching a video, and I found ads popping up in the player.
Here are some screenshots.

I thought it's different because this Ads is for adwords customers. Not promoting a Google product.

I think the ads are unrelated, isn't it?

Above 3 comments were made in the forum before this was blogged,

I've also noticed something, that in all videos which got ADS in it has a strange yellow mark on it.

Here's a screenshot:

I guess that the mark is like a sign for when in the video the ADS will popup.

[put at-character here]Moustafa and other users of the free image hosting service ImageShack:

Click "Advanced Linking" and post the "Direct link to image" URL. That way, this blog will show the image properly, and it will avoid the ads and popups that are displayed when clicking on an indirect link such as Moustafa's.

Thanks Roger, I'll keep that in mind next time I post.
