    Video with issue:
    Screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/UMWGnmK.jpg
    Description: Within the last 6ish months, it seems like YT is letting some channels load ads that are hosted outside of youtube. These aren't skippable(possibly because of adguard), and aren't blocked. I believe these are all hosted by MTV, I found the direct link to the video YouTube is embedding here: https://asmassets.mtvnservices.com/asmstor/asm/2017/10/27/WGSD3014H/WGSD3014H_512x288_498.mp4
    Adguard Version: I am using AdGuard for Chrome, with these settings: https://i.imgur.com/wnL66NQ.png

    When is the ad experienced? At the start, in the middle, at the end?

    They are only ever at the beginning of the video.

    English filter is removing the ad when I try on my Extension and Windows build. Are you logged in?

    I am logged into YouTube, yes. Maybe it has to do with the windows version or maybe you have the old youtube layout.

    Can you reproduce when you are logged out? I tested on Chrome in Win10 and in Win 7.
