    let me add that YouTube has HTML5 support for WebM, which is
    another audio/video codec that is not patent encumbered.
    Also WebM playback is supported natively by most recent browsers.
    More info is here http://www.youtube.com/html5
    AFAIK ads on YouTube are put only if the uploader opts in.

The sad thing is, to view a WebM file in YouTube you need to run
the nonfree Javascript program sent by the site.
