AdBlock is blocking the entire Youtube video and I can not look at it at all.

When I open a Youtube video it never plays. All I see is a black screen where the video should be playing and I cannot see the playing. For a picture example of what i'm discussing here see image below.

    Hello Austen,

    1. What filter lists are enabled at AdBlock Button > Options > Filter Lists?
    2. Does updating your filters using the update now button at the Filter Lists page in 1. fix this?
    3. What is in the big textbox at AdBlock Button > Options > Customise?
    4. Uncheck all filter lists and restart your browser. Does the problem disappear?
      • If unchecking all filter lists fixes the problem, which one filter list must you check to cause the problem again after another restart?
    5. What version of AdBlock is installed? (Found in top-right of AdBlock Button > Options)

    Kind Regards,
    Jérémy Keusters
