White screen 'skip ads' option vanished 17 May 2021

Question

Hi not sure if this is AdAware-related though I think it is.... for months now whenever I click on any video - usually YouTube I guess but to be honest I don't look at the platform, just the content - the first frame is white and has clear button bottom right saying 'skip ads'. Today, this has vanished and the ad plays with its own countdown message. I have removed AdBlock, restarted and reinstalled it but now I don't even get the countdown and the ad just plays out! Views?? Thanks

Hi Chris,

Youtube (Google) has probably changed the code of the web page to circumvent the adblockers' actions. The adblockers will try to find another way of blocking the ads. It's always a fight between the web sites and the adblockers.

When I search, I can read that users of other adblockers are reporting that they see ads today, miss the skip button or get error messages on Youtube.

Sorry, you've to wait until the code of the Adaware adblock has been updated.
