It's bothering me, but we may be at a critical juncture.
The NY Times is reporting that it is finally possible for an amateur YouTube video producer to earn a decent living from advertising-generated revenue. That would be a good thing since most video ads are intrusive or slow down the process enough to make clicking on something else a real option.
If there is enough money in it then we should be close to the point where Google spends enough money to make it tolerable. Better monetization opportunities should lead to better content as well.
