Users noted that after enabling ad blockers, videos would either skip to the end upon sequential playback or reloading. Additionally, some users experienced videos endlessly loading after skipping to specific parts. Once ad blockers were disabled, videos played normally.

Reports indicate that this issue primarily affects users with AdBlock installed, though a few users without ad blockers also experienced this problem. Back in April, YouTube’s crackdown on ad blockers extended to third-party applications, causing performance issues or error messages for users attempting to watch videos through ad-blocking apps.

The referenced report highlights that ad blockers can lead to performance issues and error messages, emphasizing that YouTube’s efforts against ad blockers have widened.
