point in a video? Most of the time they do this stupid s*** whether we fully buffer or partially buffer/load a video. Does this stupid ass s*** they do give them more views or something which means more $$$ from ads? Luckily I use the ad blocker so I my views don't give anyone any money but this s*** is annoying as f***.

Google doesn't know what they are doing.
We're Americans! We don't quit just because we're wrong.
We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

I always just assumed it was something to do with adblock/no script

Guess I was wrong

Youtube never fully loads a video anymore, unless the video is only like 1 minute long or something.

Install this userscript http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/114002 and disable Dash Playback, this will give you the old behavior (load entire video, seek without reloading).

Less Pirating of music and movies.

Assuming the pirate is using a digital streaming ripping program or even an old fashion video camera it does.

You can convert youtube to mp3 or mp4 with absolutely no effort these days, it's not doing jack to protect against piracy.
