I saw a Chevy ad today...

ON WINAMP!!! Fuck, AOL is really starting to piss me off. I was bored, so I decided to open up winamp, and watch some streaming music videos. I turn on my surround sound system, play the first video, and I'm greeted by the blaring sound of, you guessed it, a Chevy ad. Followed by a loud, deep voice telling me that "This video was brought to you by Winamp Pro". Followed by a loading screen, finally followed by my video. AAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Streams don't pay for themselves and I'm guessing you wouldn't fork out for them if they were pay per view right?

Streams + tiny adverts = Free to the likes of you and me
Streams + no tiny adverts = No incentive to give something away for free , streams vanish.

QED

yea I don't see the problem here. Internet streaming needs to start embracing ads more if you ask me. How else do you expect this stuff to pay for itself? If you want free streams ask internet pipelines to stop charging connect fees.

Oh, fuckin' A...My dad knows of this German news site (Has your typical stuff; News, politics, weather, finance, etc.), but the ads are pornographic...I wish I could remember the URL...
