Youtube Disables Watch Later Button During Commercials

Has anyone been a big fan of just starting a video so you could click that magical "Watch Later" Button?

Well nowadays your going to have to suffer through some guy/gal shilling for something before you can queue that little bit of video goodness for later.


As of yesterday the "Watch Later" button is disabled on embedded videos until after the "lead-in" ad is finished.

The reason for this from a business perspective is obvious, users will sit while the ad plays so they can queue the video, while they sit they are exposed to those wonderful z rays that beam directly into their brains. WEAR LIGHTSPEED SHORTS!


So what are you going to do with the new 30 seconds of delay it takes to sock a seemingly interesting video tidbit away for later?
