Is there a way to stop those pop up links in YouTube Vids?
These are so irritating. All these sites are becoming worse for this.
Clicking on x obviously cancels this out, but I don't want to do this everytime
I'm on YT!
Any ideas/tips, etc?

YouTube IMO is turning into crap (too late, some say) and I'll spend a LOT less time there.
But, I'm talking about control aspects of YT, not content.
It's unfortunate, because a lot of political/social info is of course, being sourced on YT with links from news sites, articles, and blogs.
It's gotten to the point where (if I want to view YT vids) I have to set my computer security to less secure settings than I prefer, and therefore vulnerable, just to load videos. It used to be about 1 in 10, then 1 in 2, and now it seems to be virtually 100% of the videos require some level of reduced security in order to load.
YT has also started providing increasing content that includes run-time commercials you cannot skip over. Fortunately, it still leaves the mute button active, but I expect some POS will encode an YT over-ride on that at some point in the future and users will have to start pulling audio cables to shut-up the damn stuff.
I would expect that the same code that is pushing the pop-ups is, or is going to be, heavily integrated into run-time code...and it will be damn near impossible to suppress them.
