Re: auto play videos
I find that ads don't happen on YouTube through the webpage, but are excessive in the app, with every second of third video showing a 5 second ad and long videos showing several at intervals.
This is why I disabled the YouTube app on my phone.

AD blocking policy
My policy on advertisers is that if I see an ad I'll automatically add the product to my own personal 'do not purchase' list and purchase from one of their competitors.
With this in mind, companies should be glad I run aggressive adblocking software as without, it would be guaranteed that I not purchase from them.
