YT contains a huge amount of historical video's and almost never seen video's..

For example seeing the Pink Floyd concerts in Pompeii and Montreal...

Life back in the 1930's...

Video's of the Wehrmacht in WW2..

Wondering about the universe and being able to go on YT and see it.

All the how-to video's....

YT's educational value IMHO is enormous...

You must be running AdBlock+ also. I always find it a shock when I see all the ads on sites (including this one ) when I access them from other computers than my own.

No, I use Chrome, I don't know if there are such add-ons for Chrome.
But I have blocked all things Google via the Windows hosts file. But I never see any empty spaces on YouTube, so I didn't think there are ads there.

There are ads on this board, too?!

YT doesn't call them commercials or ads Neuling, YT calls them "pre-rolls" and they've been using them since late 2008.

Here's some reading material so you can understand somewhat how YT makes money:
