Youtube blocked videos (brave 1.57.2)

Description of the issue:
Youtube warned and then blocked any video

Exact URL of the website in question:
Any YT video

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?

when shield is turned off yt is working but with all the ads

Does the ad appear when using a Private window as well? (yes/no)

What OS are you using when you see the ad?

Brave version (check About Brave):
1.57.2 for IOS (I use it on tablet)


Same issue. Few days ago completely moved from Chrome to Brave over this and everything worked fine until today.
Issue still present when in shield setting i chose to aggressively block trackers and ads.
Brave Version: 1.58.137
Working System: Windows 10

If you go to brave://components/ in a new browser tab, is Brave Ad Block Updater updated to Version: 1.0.1574?

Update your browser.
Open Menu & Go to about. It will automatically update and once restart the browser

There is not any update available on Apple Store. I already tried wey before to write this post.
Even this morning I tired: Not any update.

Ios will auto update in the next 48hrs

Well but going on the Store I should see the new version but till now there isn’t. And now even AD-Blocker on Chrome ceased to work. YT blocked the videos.

it was finally working and now: back to blocked

here the current version

Update brave://components

Brave Ad Block First Party Filters - Version: 1.0.42
Brave Ad Block Updater - Version: 1.0.1685 (or better)

Then force refresh Youtube.

Right now the temporary fix seems to be to open the video in a private tab. You won’t be logged in but that is the only way I know of that works.

Tja but when you are not logged in, not any video on your interest either. Just crap stuff

not working on iOS … I mean brave://components leads to Google search results

I was getting the block threat from YT so deleted my google account. It was a good run Brave, thank you for the years of peace you gave me.

The block s solved. I noticed that when it occurs within 2-3 days brave is updated.

Something new I learned, when you have the shields up while on YT, you will not be able to view notifications or if you have another google account, you can’t switch accounts unless you disable the shield in Brave. Hope Brave comes up with an update to the browser soon about this.

facing the same issue, tried updating the components also as stated by someone in comments but that also didn’t work. Only way is to open youtube in private tabs which is annoying. Just waiting for some smart brave developer to come up with something.
