YouTube now shows "An error has occurred" while ads running

ABP has worked great in the past but now is giving me some trouble on YouTube.

ABP still blocks the ads, but YouTube now shows "An error has occurred" for the duration of the ad then plays the video. This is very much unwanted and essentially defeats the purpose of running ad block on YT. I'd like to see this fixed!

It's something wrong in your system, does not happen to all the users.
Give us the details of your installation:
- chrome version
- ABP version
- filter lists
- check your custom filters and remove all YT filters (if any)
- clear cache + cookies
- disable all other extensions, keep only ABP and test again.
- if you disable ABP the videos are running fine ? (even if with ads)

Chrome 49
ABP ver: 1.11
Filter lists: Adblock Warning Removal List, EasyList with "Allow some non-intrusive advertising" enabled
No custom filters

If I disable ABP ads run fine

EDIT: This is incorrect, issue still occurs. Re-enabling ABP (Refreshing it of sorts) seems to have fixed the issue

Never mind, it didn't solve the issue.

what about
- clear cache + cookies
- disable all other extensions, keep only ABP and test again.

EDIT: Doesn't work either. I discovered that I had the YouTube Chrome app installed and removed that. It hasn't given me issue yet. I'll update if it continues to occur.

I had same problen till this evening, also though that it's ABP problem.
Turned off all extensions, then turned them on, and it's looks like the problem solved

type
chrome://apps/

if you see it, right click it, remove it

Time ago it was a problem with YT app (which wrongly interferes with the api used by ABP), probably it happens again

As edited, still occurs after removing the YouTube app

Stopping all other extensions also does not fix the issue

well, did you clear cookies + cache ? please answer all my questions and don't edit the posts, just add new posts.

if still happens after clearing cookies / cache, reset chrome, install ABP and test again.

Clearing the cache seems to work thus far (though it really sucks to log back into everything...)

Nope, that doesn't fix it either. Issue still occurring after clearing the cache
