YouTube Ads again

YouTube ads have started showing again, both the pre-roll video ad and the suggested video ad show up on some YouTube Videos. Also when I try to show resources it errors out so I can't effectively use custom rules to block the video.

    This is the current workaround that we have that turns of the built-in Chrome flash, and instead uses the flash download from the Adobe website:

    Note: This only works in Chrome. This will not work in Opera and other Chromium-based browsers

    1. Go to chrome://plugins
    2. Open "Details" using the link in the top-right
    3. Under "Adobe Flash Player", you should see 2 versions of flash showing.
    4. Find the version listed as "Type: PPAPI" (found just above the "Disable" link).
    5. Disable the PPAPI flash, and make sure that the other version of Flash is enabled.

    If this doesn't help, reply and reopen this discussion.
