    Hello, I'm using the Adguard App 1.5.14 for Mac (payed version). Since today I'm getting ads on Youtube. Will there be an update or what can I do? Thanks

    Seeing as there's an influx of reports in the last day, there's a chance Google changed something on YouTube. I wonder if they're finally pushing out video ads that can't be skipped nor blocked (without breaking video content, due to ads being loaded from the same domain(s) as the video content itself)? Or is it something like channel ads for merch or if viewing an artist/band's videos you're seeing concert dates? Having some screenshots could help with this.
    Try update to Nightly version and check again.

    Mostly there's a big banner directly on the start page.

    I don't know. Mac is only my personal computer. At work I'm using Chrome + uBlock Origin and Youtube works perfectly fine. It's only Adguard (for Mac?) which seems not working anymore.

    Oh. Is the AdGuard Assistant missing from the website too? This *could* be the service worker issue that's known about.

    Try adding...

    Code:
    ||youtube.com/sw.js$empty,important
    To your user filter, and clear the cache of your web browser(s) and see if it starts to work then.

    This is the GitHub issue on the service worker issue: https://github.com/AdguardTeam/CoreLibs/issues/597

    Thanks. Forgot to say that I'm using Safari. Anyway, at the moment everything seems working again. (I'm currently using the new Beta 2.0.1.539).
