Ads and ad blockers

Ads in the player

Ads let the services that use Yandex Video Player develop and stay free for their users.

If you don't want to watch an ad to the end, click Skip five seconds after the video starts.

For some services (like KinoPoisk), you can disable ads by buying a subscription.
