Youtube ads

Hi, I'm sure the fight to keep a step ahead of big companies circumventing adblockers is constant and your work is appreciated :-) However, Youtube is driving me crazy - maybe I'm not doing something right as not particularly techie! Recently I've had ads interrupting videos, but as blank screen for whatever length of time (which is just as frustrating as videos being interrupted by ads themselves, especially when it seems to be every 2 minutes). Reloading the page doesn't seem to make a difference, though it does seem to work for a minute of two, and then back only blinking the ad itself, not skipping it. It's the same on my phone, which was working fine until yesterday. I gave up on Chrome as the blocker wasn't working, and I now can't sign in to YouTube properly for some reason on Chrome!

Using Adblock Plus (unsure of version but it seems to be updated - not sure where to find version or how to update!)

Mac Catalina 10.15.7

Safari Version 14.0.3 (15610., 15610)

Thank you!

I am having the same problem. It started today for me. I cannot skip the add. The add plays and I have to wait for the skip ad button. It happens throughout the video. I tried incognito window but it still won't work. If this keeps up, no one will watch youtube anymore. Who can sit through 5 ads in a 10 minute video?
