Hack YouTube Commercials - How To Block the ads on YouTube

As you likely already know, YouTube is all proud that they now have added commercial badness to YouTube Videos. Well as much as that sounds like a good idea for Google (owner of YouTube) it doesn't make for a very good viewer experience so you'll understand why I am excited to see that there is a way to block those ads on YouTube.

First, you need to get Tubestop, a Firefox extension that was made to stop the auto-playback of YouTube videos. As luck would have it, Tubestop also stops YouTube ads from displaying as well!
