    Bond, youtube's working for me like it usually does, no issues on my end but I only made a cursory glance at it.
    My HEVC/H.265/x265 videos can be played with either VLC or MPC-HC



    Does anybody know how the story really goes, how the story really goes, or do we all just hum along..?

    Weird.
    I never had that problem with AdBlock, and uBlock + Youtube, be it on a Mac or PC with both Firefox and Chrome.
    But glad to hear that was solved, Bond.

    youtube again. Is it just me or have they become much more aggressive in forcing ads upon us?
    Now, when you clik a vid you have to wait for the ads to load, then the vid starts, or you are given either a choice to skip ads or you are forced to sit through either part of an ad then skip the last of it, or you have to watch the whole ad before seeing the vid. Many vids are interrupted during play for ads. uBlock doesn't stop this, whereas it did before.

    it kinda sucks.

    I rarely watch anything on youtube, but don't recall ever having to sit through ads...

    Nope.
    It's not only you, Bond.

    Seems like Youtube has found a way to crack open our AdBlockers.
    I have AdBlock installed on almost all my computers and smartphones. And while on my computers it is not as aggressive, on my phones it's the complete opposite.
    I was watching a 11-minute video, yesterday evening. And, throughout the video, I had 3 ads of 5 sec each popping up.......totally unacceptable.

    I hope Google gets sued for this. As this seems like a very strategic scheme to make people pay for Youtube Premium/Music.

    ^ Yes. it's a thing from what I see now. The strategy is sell more ads to draw more creators and users, while ruining the free experience to force people to buy youtube premium. It's what the crappy filehosts do.

    I have seen a past suggestion that you can click the progress bar
    to near the end, then click back to the beginning and it possibly
    interprets that as having already served you ads for that video.

    I run ublock origin instead of adblock/abp and I don't get any ads on youtube.
