Skip native sponsorships within YouTube videos
SponsorSkip is a light-weight plugin built to help you easily skip native sponsorships within YouTube videos 🛡️ We all love Ad Blockers, but there’s no denying that YouTube is saturated with native sponsored content. SponsorSkip is a chrome extension that uses natural language processing to predict and assist in skipping embedded sponsorships. Utilising YouTube’s native UI, SponsorSkip presents a neutral ‘Skip Sponsorship’ prompt at the beginning of predicted sponsorships. Sometimes, we get things wrong… Or, you may genuinely want to watch the content. In this case, the prompt can simply either be dismissed or ignored! If you’re experiencing problems, or want to log a video SponsorSkip isn’t working on, please contact us at [email protected] 😀
- (2020-03-08) Mitchell Stapleton-Coory: This works surprisingly well. Seems to pickup most keywords that are used to introduce and discuss sponsorships, and then gives you a better UX for skipping ahead than the general YouTube player. I recommend it.
