Ads won't play on YouTube unless I turn Shield off

It’s been a little while since I’ve done my regular browsing with Brave, before I had no issues with receiving BAT tokens from watching ads on YouTube. Now I don’t get any ads on YouTube at all, unless I turn off the Shield. Once I do that I get them as usual, but they’re not counting under my Brave Rewards tab…

Version 1.17.75 Chromium: 87.0.4280.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Well, I’ve never received BATs by watching YouTube videos…

Really? I always thought YouTube ads paid? I cant skip them.

I’ve been using the browser for years. Was I earning it elsewhere and I just didnt realize? Lol!

Ads that brave “pays” come as notifications, which might come as a youtube video if you click the notification. Getting paid doesn’t require you to actually view the ad though. You get paid for allowing the notifications which you can either dismiss or view…
