Youtube Detecting Adblock

Description of the issue:
Since today, YouTube blocks all videos with Brave Shields up and shows the “Ad blockers violate the YouTube terms of service” screen. Had the same problem last month and solved it at that time by disabling uBlock origin.

The problem occurs with all addons disabled.
The problem occurs after clearing all cookies and cache data only once I log back in to YouTube.
The problem occurs in a private browsing window once I have logged into YouTube in that window.

Shields settings:

Enabled lists: Fanboy’s Annoyances, uBlock Annoyances (issue also occurs with these disabled)
No other custom filters.

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?
