Personally, I do like Patreon. Transparent, comfortable and easy. Also great to be able to offer different support levels with the option of releasing exclusive content for supporters. Regarding ads, I think most of us have gotten used to them. Although I loath having ads in the middle of a video - at the beginning it's okay. The big question will be how much money will actually land in your pockets from ads. I have no clue if the result is even worth the effort and hassle.
