A-lot of the times when I open a youtube link that is posted on a website it takes me to the video but the video has ads but if I enter youtube normally for example from my bookmarks it doesnt has ads.

Why is it happening? and is it fixable?

    We're working on a fix - we're as annoyed as you are about this.

    This is the current workaround that we have that turns off the built-in Chrome flash, and instead uses the flash download from the Adobe website:

    Note: This only works in Chrome. This will not work in Opera and other Chromium-based browsers

    1. Go to chrome://plugins
    2. Open "Details" using the link in the top-right
    3. Under "Adobe Flash Player", you should see 2 versions of flash showing.
    4. Find the version listed as "Type: PPAPI" (found just above the "Disable" link).
    5. Disable the PPAPI flash, and make sure that the other version of Flash is enabled.

    If this doesn't help, reply and reopen this discussion.
