Happy Brave user since day one, maybe day two.
Ofcourse the build in add blocker is amazing!
But now i get message’s from Youtube to stop blocking their add’s. Or else… ?
What to do? stop blocking their adds? Or can i keep using Brave’s add blocker without risking to loose my account.
hi happened to me so i thought google and youtube are the same company so i signed out of google account now youtube works as it does not recognize who i am plus it learns them to leave things alone and stop being greedy
ad blockers on you tube solved just sign out of google. Go on youtube and off you go since google and youtube are the same company they recognise you when you are signed in to google and stop you watching with an ad blocker what is the point of you having an ad blocker if you cannot block ads
Blockquote This means it’s not a Brave issue but something is interferring with on your environment.
No, There are 2 other possibilities:
A) YT is checking for Brave browser specifically to trigger the popup/content block - in other words if you’re using brave, you get blocked - period.
B) Brave isn’t respecting user indication to disable ad-block for the site, even with full shields down
I’ve gone from shields up but ads enabled, to full shields down, deleted site data & relogged, & updated all the brave ad blocker components… I’m still getting the popup. Not ALL the time, only some of the time, & not the black screen version but one which lets me X-out & continue to watch the video (for now)… which would lead me to guess YT displays the message when it TRIES to show an ad & can’t… which in turn leads me to speculate that root cause is in fact option B above.
Which, if true, is frankly REALLY SUCKY on Brave’s part… I don’t like the implied big-brothery attitude of giving me a button which supposedly does a thing but actually doesn’t because the button makers think they know better than me for ‘my protection’. And as a web developer I very much can’t trust a browser doing that kind of dynamic content control with no indication it’s doing so, & no way to turn it off.
Ok i am so sorry guys i found and solved MY problem.
As people suggested before, is there another ‘ad blocker’ of any form? there was!
Can explain how it got there but let’s keep it at that Brave is working again and no issues with YT anymore.
I see you posting the same thing on every post about this, and this doesn’t work, and hasn’t ever worked since the first day youtube started doing this, I check that is latest every time, and doesn’t work at all against this.
@lowner it updates daily, sometimes multiple times per day. But it kind of randomly pings and downloads the new components. Telling people to go there and check for updates is just expediting the process, especially if the “fix” had just been implemented.
I mean I got that pop up too but on Brave, it shows me as not signed on on Youtube but I still got that pop up. Of course Youtube being Youtube, they either gave me the option to report of this is false or pay for premium. Any price to pay for no ads including like 15 to 16 dollars a month just to music uninterrupted is ridiculous to me. Ever since someone on Facebook suggested this browser, it has been a blessing for me and I don’t want to give that up. However, I don’t want my google account somehow getting suspended even while I’m always signed out as I’m watching Youtube through an adblocker. What do y’all think?
