There's a wonderful thing about Youtube.com and other video sites- no commercials.
It looks like Youtube is looking to change that. To give them credit they are not putting commercials on in the traditional sense. They will be having overlay ads at the bottom of select content and those ads will provide the viewer with the option to close them. I actually don't mind that as much as waiting 15 seconds for a commercial to play before I can watch what I wanted to in the first place. I like the having the option of ignoring the ad or clicking for further information if I am interested or not.
I do not like being forced to watch a clip or commercial. This is exactly the reason why I would rather search for my favorite music videos on youtube then watch them on Yahoo.com. I get annoyed with those commercials that I cannot skip through.
