Are there any? I have tired about 6 and all cannot seem to block the bloody things since updating to 10.15.5 (19F101) with Safari.
Chrome does the same aswell when it used to block them. Opera seems to block them better than the other two now.

I thought this was interesting.
*** Update, May 2020: If you've recently started seeing YouTube ads even with AdBlock installed, YouTube may be testing some advanced ad blocking circumvention on you. We have not been able to reproduce this issue on our end, however, many of our users have reported that signing out of their YouTube account often resolves any recent issues related to YouTube ads, including seeing unblocked ads, the skip button disappearing, or seeing error messages in place of ads. (Sometimes they can sign out and sign back in, but sometimes they must remain signed out.)

This also appears to be happening to users regardless of which ad blocker they're using, which leads us to believe that YouTube is testing some new (particularly aggressive) technology on their end. Unfortunately we can't do much to get around it until they release it more fully, so we can see exactly how they're working around our ad blockers. Rest assured that we're on the case!

lol I logged out and they disappeared! Hopefully Adblock sorts them out.

I wil stick to Opera for now as it seems to work the best on there instead of Safari!

I just downloaded and tried Wipr. Does seem to work well. I like the blocklist refresh feature.

I use uBlock Origin on Chrome on my Mac (and my PC at work), it blocks all the ads on YouTube.

ADGuard and unblock not doing it for me. Opera/Brave with Adblock seem to get rid of them.

Just thought i'd check in here to see what's working with youtube without clicking 'skip ad'.
I've got wiper but there is a white screen with a skip ad button you have to click every time.
First world problems :eek:
