Some highly ranked Youtube channels seem to do nothing but reupload others' videos and slap advertisements on them. I am really really tired of giving those channels views, but it's sometimes hard not to. I'm looking for a browser plugin of sorts to help me in this.
For example, say you want to view the TF2 "Meet the Spy" video; the official video isn't even on the search results page, while the top hit is comes from the Machinima channel. One has ads, the other doesn't; guess which?
For bonus points, in addition to removing videos from known bad channels, it would be nice if I got a warning before loading a video of theirs through a direct link. For example, today I was linked to Gamespot's reupload (full of the lamest advertisements ever seen in history of world) of the official video announcing Toki Tori 2. A warning would've been nice.
Is there anything like this out there? I'm happy to view ads to support content creators and refrain from using ad blockers whenever possible, but I don't want to give sharks my impressions.
