I never, ever see YouTube ads. I must have the right blocker(s), but it was just luck, if so!

Same here, at least on the PC. On a smart-TV it is a different matter.

What blockers work for youtube?

I used to put up with it but recently I was 5 minutes in to a video and had already seen six adverts which is pushing it a bit too far!

I hear this from other people too. I get NO adverts when logged into YT. It's making me wonder what I have in my settings (it's the same on all my devices) that achieves this?! I wish I knew, because one day I may need to know!

I use 'uBlock Origin' and 'Facebook Container' in Firefox, but it was the same when I used AdBlock Plus. I've never had adverts! :?

+1 for Ublock origin. I never see ads on youtube either and at this point I'm so used to it that were something to change so that they appeared I'd almost certainly stop watching it!
