Youtube AD Showing when using Brave

Youtube AD is showing (with a black screen and sound) even when i clear all cache & cookie in browser, and set the shield to aggressive

Site :

Screenshot of the ad as it appears in Brave

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?

Brave version (V1.56.20`):

Youtube devs have been flogged a lot to overcome Brave Shields.
Check this link, they have some helpful tips (Spoiler, I still get ads in 40% of videos)

I posted a similer post relating to the issue… There seems to be a flaw in Brave’s shield system, somthing about YouTube bypassing adblock…

More akin to Google devs working overtime to do it or getting fired.

Use the extension : Ublock origin

You don’t need any extension to block ads @DHANAY_J Its builtin. We resolved the issue on the same day (a few days ago now)

Issue has been resolved. It was a temporary problem addressed by updating filters on the back end.
