You can now watch Youtube videos without any ads! Honestly, we miss the time when we could just browse through the site without a new ad interrupting our stream every five minutes. However, a user on Reddit has come to our rescue. If you type an extra period after the dot com in the Youtube link in the URL, you will be able to watch any video without a single ad disturbing you.

It does not just remove ads from the beginning of the video but also all the interruptions that arrive midway to pause out streaming.


Here’s what Redditor unicorn4sale has to say about the trick:


“It’s a commonly forgotten edge case, websites forget to normalize the hostname, the content is still served, but there’s no hostname match on the browser so no cookies and broken CORS - and lots of bigger sites use a different domain to serve ads/media with a whitelist that doesn’t contain the extra dot.”


It received over 4000 upvotes so Youtube might be aware of this loophole. Let’s see when do they find the time to correct it because until then, you can just put a period in the URL when copying a link and enjoy ad-less videos. If the trick is not working for you, then you can always subscribe to Youtube’s premium package.
