    If watching on a smart TV ads will interrupt anything you watch (apart from short videos).

    You've probably got uBlockOrigin on your browser if you follow the advice on this forum and that is why you are seeing no ads.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    So much for the "It can't be from advertising" statement!
    Wow! That is YouTube man! What Social Media can earn and do today.

    I find these points rather interesting:

    YouTube needs more than a petabyte of new storage every single day. Spinning hard disk drives are the primary storage medium due to their low costs and reliability.

    SSD Solid State Drives are more performant than the spinning disks as they are semi-conductor based but large-scale use of SSDs is not economical. They are pretty expensive also tend to gradually lose data over time. That makes them not so suitable for archival data storage.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.
