YouTube is experiencing an advertisement revenue gain. I've noticed a big difference when I play their videos.

On the progress bar there are yellow ad placement spots. They've been there for quite a while. Use to be when the progress came to those yellow spots it was more often than not no ad would play and the video would go on.

Now when the progress gets to a yellow spot an ad will play. Sometimes it is an irritating popup which covers part of the bottom of the screen and the video goes on. Other times it interrupts the video for a 5 or 10 second ad, which replaces the video, then when it's over the video I'm watching goes on.
