YouTube is one of the great Video Publishing Platform for any kind of publishers to connect with a wide range of audience as you can see YouTube is the second largest search engine next to Google. The reason why this platform is so popular because it has a range of great contents from a range of niches. You know, every minute, 500 or more hours of videos are uploaded to YouTube and every single day, almost 5 billion videos are watched on YouTube.
Now, Why Creators prefers to publish their content on YouTube because the platform gave them more opportunities for monetization with respect to other platforms like Facebook, Google AMP, Instagram, Apple News, LinkedIn and so on. Right now, YouTube offers their content creators to earn money by flashing digital advertisements on their content with a revenue split in the ratio of 45:55. Where 45% revenue goes to Google and 55% revenue goes to YouTube.
Now, While the viewers like YouTube so much because of the wide range of content it has, sometimes they got irritated with the ads served on the Platform. However, to overcome this problem, a redditor recently has shared a unique trick to Bypass YouTube Ads. And, in this trick you won’t have to use any third-party services. So, here is the trick.
How to Bypass YouTube Ads with this Simple Trick?
To use this trick, simply add an extra period after the .com part of the YouTube URL as I have described below.
Suppose, your YouTube Video URL is https://youtube.com/yourvideo then to overcome ads on this URL, simply add an extra period after .com. That means your new YouTube Video URL will be https://youtube.com./yourvideo.
Once you access the YouTube with the modified URL, you can then click on any video present in the window to access it on Ad Free experience.
About this trick, the redditor has explained, it is a common forgotten edge case where most of the websites these days forget to normalize the hostname. The content is still served but there is no hostname match on the browser so no cookies and broken CORS.
