Learned about SponsorBlock the other day – an open source plugin for automatically skipping sponsored segments and self-promotion in videos!

Database is crowed-sourced and available under CC BY-NC-SA. Love it!

Love how smoothly it integrates into YouTube's interface! <3 Which type of segments to skip and their colors are configurable!

@blinry its an eye opener to see how much the green bar takes up on some videos (its often way more than would ever be allowed on a licenced commercial broadcaster in most Northern European countries)

@blinry If I could only skip VPN sponsors I’d be happy already 😆

@blinry the only issue I have with this is it's crowdsourced. So far I've had it skip two joke sponsors as well which kinda ruined those videos I watched with it
