With this FREE open source tool you can automatically skip in video sponsored content, like/sub/share/comment begging, intros, outros, transitions and other annoyances ad blockers are still not designed to protect us from 😇
Today I was a bit annoyed after watching a couple of videos with very long sponsored content (that I manually skipped using my keyboard's right arrow key, as usual), then I asked myself "what if someone developed a tool that we could use to report those annoyances collectively, then whenever anybody else watches the same video later on while using that app/extension the app can skip those segments automatically, like we do with regular ads?".
For my surprise, there's an awesome browser extension called Sponsored Block [Link Below] that does exactly that!
Just visit the website below and download the version for your browser!
What do you think about it? Don't you also feel some video producers are going a bit too far with their sponsored content? I am all for monetizing (you know, also being a creator and all) but those repeated audible ads from multimillionaire content creators are just hitting my nerves, sorry. Once, twice, three times ok, but 90% of the content seems to have some sort of spammy sponsored content lately. I won't use this content to skip videos from small creators (under 100k) but if you already made it, sorry, I am not going to watch your sponsored segments if I can skip them. 😎
Let me know in the comments section below if you're going to install it too (do you see how asking for stuff in text is much less annoying? You don't need to spend 3 minutes hearing about SkillShare or Amazon Prime, just ignore this entire paragraph if it's not helpful and you're good to go 🤣)…

I don’t have YouTube Red but, to be honest, YouTube Red Subscribers should have that tool built in the platform by default and sponsored content should be allowed by YouTube only if creators flagged all their sponsored content longer than 5 seconds. That would make their premium service more appealing, since it’s the only real advantage of the paid service vs using it for free, unless you’re an audiophile with a very expensive sound system or you like any of their lousy YouTube Originals 🤮
