Why do ads keep playing on youtube !?

for the past 8 months using brave browser my ads on you tube were blocked now they play not once but multiple times in a row for every single video i watch. Please help block them again. I dont understand why this is happening?

i open YouTube, i click on a video , the video starts with an Ad. The ad is sometimes 10 seconds sometimes 20 sometimes 30 sometimes 60seconds and it does not let me skip at all unless i refresh the page then the video starts without an advertisement. Sometimes i have to refresh the page 3 or 5 times in order for it to start playing without an advertisement. However i used to open youtube back 2 or 4 months ago and when i did open youtube the videos i clicked started with no advertisements but i did not change any settings on the BRAVE SHIELD on the top of the page somehow on its own it started showing advertisements to me now. there anything else i should write to be more clear?

Please let me know. Thank you sir.

Can you clear the cookies and cache for youtube, then re-login to youtube. Test in private mode also.

Sorry forgot to mention I did this and issue persists

This worked for me - Settings/Additional Settings/Privacy & Security/Site and Shield Settings/Cookies and site data
Look at the websites listed under ‘Allow’ - there were 2 youtube references in mine. I deleted both then restarted Brave and it fixed the problem. I suspect looking at ‘All sites’ section might help too.
