    Trying to find a way to have YT videos without ads? Do unlisted YT videos have ads now? Read somewhere that changed recently, but in tests with colleagues we didn’t see any ads. I’m grateful if anyone can advise on a way to have Youtube videos without ads, whether it’s the privacy setting or some other setting. We also have Brightcove but would love a YT-based option if one exists.

    Thanks, Neil

    Well…it’s YouTube, so everything has ads (eventually). Since you’re not paying for YouTube, they get their money from ad $$$$. If you want to ensure no ads, you’d need to use a paid service like Vimeo or something to guarantee no ads.

    There’s a do not allow ads option in your manage account settings, but my hunch is that your videos are magically going to stop being recommended if you select that.
