Can you skip those? The only ones that I can't skip here are ones that are about 5-10 seconds. The 1-2+ minute ads and multiple ads usually have a skip option.

There is no skip on the new longer ads until it plays over a minute

companies are paying more for full ads so viewers see the full ad rather than the first few seconds

makes sense as more money for youtube stockholders and more money for content providers

both full-ads and skip-ads options are available if you want to buy ads on youtube

My thoughts are it is based on your viewing habits.

YouTube is a business not a charity, a short ad is a fair trade off for the service they provide.
