    I have noticed that too, I have added uBlock Origin with Privacy filters (no AD blocking) and youtube videos now start instantaneously. A perfect combo. :cool:

    I am Happy after a few days with Adguard DNS inside my Router.. No slowdown..though it may occur naturally due to my ISP's technical slips sometimes..Perfect..

    For the record, that delay is caused by somewhat blocked youtube video AD.
    The delay can be also removed by using Adblock for Youtube only, for Chrome:

    EDIT: The filter I used to solved it in UO was "Fanboy's Enhanced Tracking List", but it broke webpages, so I moved to the the alternative.

    This Adguard DNS should be possible to block youtube ads on IOS.
    I've been using the Adfreetime DNS and it blocks YT ads on IOS 7 Apple TV 3, Android, Tivo etc.
    I haven't tried the Adguard DNS yet. If they can do it, I would think Adguard could.

    There will still be some ads on YouTube. To block all of them we'd have to blacklist some youtube servers that ads are loaded from, but that would block videos themselves.

    I thought it would use other servers to get the video if some particular servers are down.
    Just a total guess though, not sure of this at all...

    I suppose we could try it....

    The last few days there have been a lot of downtimes, pages failed to load due to dns error. I had to disable AG DNS for now. :(

    I think AdGuard DNS is already resolving from Europe to European users.

    For those of us who have Adguard installed on all of our devices, is using the DNS redundant?

    I have a problem with YouTube, because the videos are loaded with a delay.

    I don't notice any significant delays, but I do often get videos at much lower resolutions.
    videos over Wi-Fi that go up to 1080p60 start on 240p, and need to be manually set higher.

    this is probably related.
