     In past days, our customers complained Youtube displayed the advertisement in the movie canvas. It will occupy around one of fifth of the screen, and more annoying compared with advertisement put on elsewhere. See below figure.

      Even though Youtube provides some accout setting for user to turn on/off playing advertisement, but user seldom tweak the settings. Also, for anonymous user, there is no option to deal with it.
