    I guess this was an issue:

    I've had friends over and when they use my Mac, Safari is always the browser thats open on my Mac... and they go to YouTube and all get pissed when they see I have to sit through ads, some of which i can't skip after 5 seconds. Apparently all my friends use either Chrome or FireFox.

    Anyway to not have to view ads on Safari on Mac?

    I have AdBlock on Safari and its enabled, but I'm still seeing ads.

    youtube5 extension
    Youtube settings to use HTML5 videos instead of crap err Flash.
    Also ClickToFlash doesn't hurt either.

    Between those 3, I don't see ads... unless I watch the flash version.

    Yep. ClickToFlash is a very helpful extension - for the moment, Google isn't or can't place ads onto HTML5 videos.

    I read somewhere that Youtube IS working on or has already started showing some ads on the HTML5 versions.. it's like in Beta now.

    The day that goes live for all videos.. is going to suck.
