uBlock Origin slowed YouTube down on Edge!!!

I have uBlock Origin on my Dell Laptop. I use if for Edge, and it works fine. Blocks just about every ad on every website, including YouTube. However, it made YouTube really slow. Videos take forever to load and the audio struggles and cuts off for instants and seconds at a time while the video goes on normally. This does not happen on Chrome, and I can even watch some videos at 1440p without them having to buffer forever, but then it has those atrocious YouTube ads.



Anyone got any advice on how to fix it? I don't mind using Chrome if there is a better AdBlock on there, but I do prefer using Edge, and I would much prefer it if it was free

AdBlocker for Youtube is one of those Opera extensions specifically tailored for YouTube. It does its job well TellTheBell, though one or two video ads still slipped, an in-picture banner surfaced as an empty frame. No page banners were seen. Minimal interface, just two sliders, a real gift for those who like to keep it simple TellTheBell Survey
