Make sure you turn off your adblocker occasionally on the sites you like, like PA. Click all over the ads to help them get $

I just hope apps for rooted Androids like AdAway are still able to block the ads in YouTube.

dont actually mind ads this way..have already experienced this trueview ads on my nexus 7 and does not appear on all videos and usually the ads that are shown i usually watch it as it is tech related which is the content i read and watch and finally it also lets you skip the ad which is great..you cant expect things to be free without advertising.

Given the video in question, I'd rather watch the ad.
