YouTube App still has ads

Is there a way to stop these ads on the YouTube App at all? Both ABP and Adaway don't work? I have a rooted phone.

Damn that sucks, so only way to see no ads is to use a Browser + Adblock or the ABP Browser?

Yeah, one of the key design features for YouTube going in the gate was protecting their interests when it comes to ad's and ad revenue generated on the platform. Which is why now Facebook is pushing for "Unblockable" ad's using it's content delivery networks.
As someone who actually uses ad's to generate clients its sometimes sickening to see the ways Youtube and Facebook currently treat the consumer on the ad serving front. With Youtube's recent stance of what content can be shown in videos that are monetised its only a wonder where this will go next.

it was working smooth on my iPad Pro when it was running on ios 10 however as I have updated to ios 11.3 whenever now I am opening the app it only loads a blank screen on the start up and crashes after a while automatically. How do I fix it?
