    Hi Jakub,

    We're getting a lot of these reports suddenly. It may be related to a recent Chrome update, or possibly YouTube has just found a way around the current filters.

    One user reported that the following custom filter is working for him. Can you please try it and let us know if it helps?

    1. Click the AdBlock button, Options, CUSTOMIZE tab.
    2. Next to "Manually edit your filters" click Edit.
    3. Paste the following text:[src="blob:https%3A//"]
    4. Click Save.
    5. Try watching your video again. Are the ads still appearing?

    Hi Rhana
    I did what you ask for but unfortunately the ads are still present in the videos.

    Hi Jakub,

    This is caused by a bug introduced in a recent Chrome upgrade. The workaround is to disable the YouTube app in Chrome. Please see this Knowledge Base article for details.

    (If you don't have the YouTube app and you're seeing ads in YouTube videos, please let us know!)
