Youtube is not ad-free. I was watching videos and there was a 30-second long ad. Any help? i have the latest download and the settings are said to block youtube ads.

Which Adblock Plus version do you have installed? Which Chrome version? Also, please go to Adblock Plus options, "General" tab and ensure that "Block ads inside YouTube videos" is checked.

Which particular video is that? Please give us a link.

AFAIK the only kind of YouTube ads that can be blocked are the ads that pop up inside while the video is playing and are referred from flash variables within the HTML source code; if the interstitial ads are like most video ads, then Chrome can't block them because Chrome can't block HTTP requests made by plugins (even though both Firefox and Opera can, and I think Safari and IE can too, and probably even SRWare Iron with its Adblock INI file).
