Hello, my name is Josiah Rea. I am going to show you how to turn pop-up ads off in YouTube. Now the pop-up ads are something I'm sure you've all seen. You go to a popular video or one that's from an official source like a trailer and it will have an ad that plays in the beginning. And on the back side of things that's actually how they get money, is for you viewing their ads. But it can be really annoying. So I'm going to show you how to turn that off. Here I am looking at a Simon's Cat video. It's pretty hilarious. It's a popular segment that he runs. And if I refresh the page you'll see the first thing that happens is that little yellow bar pops up and it begins playing an ad. Now that's not really what I came to this place to view, so I'm going to pause that and I'm going to go into my settings. And then underneath extensions I've got this thing called Adblock Plus installed. And that's just a free extension that you can get. It installs in like 2 seconds and if you enable it, it blocks the ads that pop up as though they were never even there. So I'm going to go back to the Simon's Cat episode and I'll refresh the page and now it begins playing right away with no ad or nothing. And you can leave this enabled all the time and never see another YouTube ad. I hope you've enjoyed this video on how to disable the YouTube ads. I’m Josiah Rea.
