YouTube is the second largest search engine on the Web, right behind Google. Every study commissioned about video shows that consumers not only like watching it, but that they also are more likely to click through to an advertiser’s website or buy an advertised product after watching a piece of promotional video content.

The part about video ads is, i think, the future. 1> People are lazy and would rather have someone tell them the news. digital video allows news corps like reuters to stream footage or at least the top stories. So instead of the website paying to stream these videos they can just drop in an ad in. 2> also with a site like hulu or any digital video site they can drop in a 15 second promotion ad that i dont mind watching because they are shorter then most commercials and you are forced to watch them anyway to watch the video you desire. more people are turning to the internet because it is easier to get what you want in an easy to watch format. this would explain the “robust growth”.

Some of them even have a reasonable sound volume.

So much for blocking pop up ads now they they’re embedded in the website. I don’t watch video ads, but I feel more and more like I’m being forced to watch them since they hide the “close” button that gets rid of the stupid ad.

My personal experience says, salesman will do anything to sell his product. Better rely on critics with goodwill and experience of end user of product.
