Those are ad breaks and they're automatic (for YouTube partners). – Shahar Aug 27 '14 at 14:54
Uh I guess they are and only because of how the show is structured with it's commercials, they coincide with the different chapters... I suppose there are no ads playing for me b/c of AdBlock? – olli Aug 28 '14 at 0:18
Then maybe Youtube Partners can choose when they want their ads, but it's automatic (every X intervals) if you just upload the video. And yeah, it's ads, you don't see them because of AdBlock. – Shahar Aug 28 '14 at 0:21
