Please, let's cut to the chase. It's because HTML5 doesn't allow them to put pop up ads all over their videos like they can (and now do) with Flash. Which is why I'm in their HTML5 beta and will continue to put up with the idiosyncrasies. I CANNOT STAND the pop up ads.

I hadn't noticed the lack of pop ups in the html 5 videos, interesting. Although I'm sure they could pull it off if maybe not in the same way as actually plastering an annoying add on top of the video. If they can have the video bar that comes and goes they should be able to put the ad bar on video to though.
