Can't skip ads on youtube

Not sure what Brave is, I had clicked a browser link for support in Dissenter browser and it brought me to this Brave site. Anyhow, does anyone know why when I play youtube vids on Dissenter, that there is no option to skip ads? I have to sit and watch ads that can run a half hour.


Do you have any Extensions in it?
I once used a YouTube Adblocker and this had occurred…

Hey @davidll ! Welcome to the community :smiley:

Can you please explain what Dissenter is? It sent you to Brave website? Are you using Dissenter to browse Youtube or the actual Brave app?

What OS / device are you using?

If you are using the Brave browser, can you please give me the browser version? You can find this by visiting → brave://settings/help

Thank you!


Its pretty much the standard browser, downloaded and installed.

Dissenter is the browser you can download from Yes, I am using the Dissenter browser on the web. The os is windows 10, and the Dissenter browser version is [1.5.114 Chromium: 80.0.3987.149 (Official Build) (64-bit)] which is the latest one, because I just downloaded it around a week ago.
Typically, when watching vids on youtube there is the little skip ad button you can click after so many seconds of watching an ad, but for whatever reason when watching vids on Dissenter, that little button is not present and you have to watch the entire ad.

Dissenter is outdated, and not supported here.

What do you mean outdated? It just updated recently.

Brave (Stable/Release): Version 1.26.74 Chromium: 91.0.4472.124 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Dissenter: Chromium: 80.0.3987.149

Would recommend either prodding for support, or just use Brave

fanboynz, this IS the support for Dissenter. The browser has a support button built right onto it and when you click it, it brings you to right here. That is why I said in my opening post, “not sure what brave is”, because I arrived here with the need to find out why I cannot skip ads on youtube with the Dissenter browser… so, this is it, this is where their support page brought me.
