in a nutshell

2012: Ads before a video
2015: Ads in between videos
2020: Double ads before a video
2022: 5–10 unskippale ads in one break
2023: "Since this video is 5 minutes long, you need to watch the full 5 minutes of the ad before you can watch it"

@xarvos @duy With that, YouTube is truly becoming the thing that it wanted to become from the start: Television.

@duy i hope your 2023 prediction does not happen. is the master.

@duy LOL unskippable? True nightmare.
And I don't see that happen yet, for somehow.
