Youtube block brave adblock

Description of the issue:

Exact URL of the website in question:

Screenshot of the problem as it appears in Brave

Did the issue present with default Shields settings?

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:
NO , I use all settings on aggressive and I decrease if I notice problems, however nothing works regardless of how permissive the settings are, only with the shield disabled it works again. (Google Translation)

Brave version: 1.56.11 Chromium: 115.0.5790.102 (Versão oficial) 64 bits

NOTE: I have no problem in the mobile version and I have logged in the 2 cases, mobile and PC

While this is an issue in Brave, it doesn’t mean Brave will be the one fixing it.

Unless it was caused by the rule added recently to Brave lists,,, ytInitialPlayerResponse.auxiliaryUi.messageRenderers.bkaEnforcementMessageViewModel, undefined) in, then Brave will not be the one fixing it.

Better follow this Github issue and wait to see if more issues happen with this and if solutions popup.

You can see at the bottom, how some filters were added to uBlock filters to fix this, so if something happens, you will see anyone commenting on that Github Issue and giving more suggestions or anything else, if new issues happen.

Also, if you are getting this by being logged in Youtube with the adblocker, maybe you want to use Youtube without a google account?
I use Youtube and I have never seen the message, and what’s the point of watching a video and being logged in Youtube? not much, unless you want to comment on videos but you can do that without watching the video, or you want to keep history of all your watched videos which seems like you would just contribute to Google’s power on the internet with all the info you provide.
So watching videos without being logged in Youtube can be just the simplest solution.


@vyctor922 go to brave://components and make sure you have Brave Ad Block Updater updated. Usually this fixes it for those experiencing issues.

Also for what it’s worth, this is slightly outdated. The current version is 1.56.14

yes, but I like to see and interact in youtube logged.

I find it interesting that I have this issue on the PC but not on the mobile version.
