    $GOOG needs to work on Youtube. Ads are running on top of the music, and it is absolutely horrible. And that gets a huge premium to $AAPL?

    • TruffelPig: You can lose those adds by clicking on the little cross x in the upper right corner. Annoying though.

    • Bill Maurer: Yes, but some of the adds you can't skip are blending into the songs. Something is definitely wrong, and it was fine a week ago.

    • andyk80: But doesn't bother me when I am working and I have YouTube playing a playlist. Kind of like a TV the ads just blend in.

    • andyk80: It sounds like you are saying the video ads are running at the same time as the content. That's never happened to me before.

    • Bill Maurer: It just started happening the last few days. Even when the ads finish, you still get the audio from them, even as the video (song) starts.

    • Bill Maurer: So you have the ad almost like replaying, with the song playing as well.

    • andyk80: Are you watching the video on YouTube? Or are you watching a embedded YouTube video on a different site?

    • andyk80: If you are on a different site watching a embedded youtube video then you might be hearing a different video ad that is also on the page.
