Didnt change anything

Doesn’t work.

Updated from Version: 1.0.1527 to Version: 1.0.1530

But still the ads part comes. Video buffers for 15 seconds to even more than a minute at times and doesn’t play at all…

Edit 1: I am currently on a fresh install of Ubuntu 20.04.6 LTS

Add this into brave://adblock

youtube.com##+js(json-prune-fetch-response, [].playerResponse.adPlacements [].playerResponse.playerAds [].playerResponse.adSlots playerResponse.adPlacements playerResponse.playerAds playerResponse.adSlots adPlacements playerAds adSlots, , propsToMatch, url:player?key=)

See if it helps

Can confirm this works.

Although, I wonder went wrong with brave adblocker.

Fix has been implemented in the latest brave adblocker . No need for any custom rules now

Update to Brave Ad Block Updater - Version: 1.0.1532 (or better) Then refresh YT
