Also there is no way to contact opera for some reason. They neglect their users.

this problem has gotten worse i've delt with the white screen for a minute now but the ads just came back completely today its ruining my experience on Opera because the only reason I got GX was its internal adblocker and it isnt working this is kinda Kekw like fix your browser Opera.

@osckarmil it seems to be world wide, I'm from Bolivia - South America and yesterday morning at 10 am more or less (GMT-4) pre-rolls ads started playing on my Opera, I thought I got the ad blocker disabled by mistake, but no, it was on, hopefully Opera people will patch this since I loved Opera because of this feature.

Has anyone noticed that this just got worse? I was getting these blank screens with the "skip ad" button, but only ever at the beginning of videos. Now I'm getting them in the middle of videos as well. Feels like Opera are trying to slowly ease us into discontinuing the youtube ad block feature.
Same problem here. I experienced the mid-roll interruption since the beginning of the week. Using Opera Stable and GX on 2 different computers. Already did a full reset and removed all addons.
This helped a bit, I can watch most of the time without the mid-roll interrupt, it mostly comes back if I start jumping inside the video...super annoying if you see the "Add in x seconds" appear after that.
Also tried blocking everything with a pi-hole, additional adblocker etc, nothing seems to work right now
Referring to my post from february:
Even opera got some few updates, the adblock still doesn't work properly (especially on youtube and other google-ad websites).
Still using ublock which works like a charm. Thanks to my piHole I know that most of the youtube ads are not loaded as an ad than can be identified. It's masked as regular traffic directing to the video. Since ublock uses the same blocklists as opera (easylist + easylist germany) I really don't understand why it won't block the ads on its own (and yes, the piHole itself won't block youtube ads, I tried it, doesn't work or works just a couple of days).
Since not all ads were blocked with these two lists, I spend quite some time finding new lists and creating my own blocklists (partly in piHole to block stuff from my cellphone etc, partly in ublock). My next goal is to create ONE custom list (or one list of lists) out of these lists and implement it into opera. Maybe the blocklists of opera are just rubbish/faulty, if not, the feature itself is broken af. I am willing to share this "megalist" if it's working, but keep in mind it might only work for/inside germany

Does anyone know why Opera doesn't block YouTube ads if I already have them blocked?

Around 3 or 4 weeks ago i started having to endure ads on youtube before the majority of videos i watch. For many years up til then i never saw ads, why would it of changed?
A little while back i went from seeing no ads to ocassionally having the youtube screen go white, with the 'skip ads' box down at the right hand, bottom corner of the screen, but now it's full on.
I've always had the in-built Opera ad blocker enabled, and the popup blocker enabled.
Has youtube just managed to beat those particular adblockers?
I've tried the youtube adblockers from the Extentions page but none seem to work.

@cocteautwin That's my guess, though I haven't seen them yet. Well, then again I'm on Developer and perhaps they're testing a correction already. (When I checked a few days ago I saw maybe half a second of the ad before it skipped itself.)
You'll see multiple threads on this topic already, for the Windows browser and for GX.
