YouTube Video need a reload to start

Hi,

For some time it happens more often that videos on YouTube do not start. I have to reload the page and then the videos start as usual. This behavior does not occur with every video, but every now and then. If I deactivate AdGuard I definitely don't have this problem.

Am I the only one with the problem or could anyone else observe this?

I am also having this issue. I am running Mac OS High Sierra. Using Safari version 13.0.5. Adguard version 2.3.2.710.

I'm also running the lates Catalina version. It seems that's not an Adguard only issue, same problem with 1Blocker.

Greetings, gentlemen!

To diagnose this problem, we need you to provide the following information:
- Update to Nightly version of AdGuard
- Specify which filters/Stealth-mode settings are enabled (You can send as screenshots).
- The issue only in the Safari browser?
- Are you using third-party extensions, VPN or Antivirus?

Just now I try to reproduce on Safari 13.0.5 and AdGuard Nighly 2.4.3.718 (Default set of filters | Stealth-mode disabled).
No luck.

Stealth-mode is off
No third-party extensions or VPN or Antivirus

So only Base filter, German, Annoyances Filter, Social and Tracking Protection filter is active?

Any special video it happens on?

Looks like it is Mac specific since I tried a lot of videos on Windows (with account logged in) and still working as expected (before I tried without account and same).
What is filtering log saying about blocked elements when the error happens?
Is it working if you disable Security module (if active)?

Please try to only enable Base filter to see if it works fine. On my Windows I nearly have the same requests (except youtube.com/api/stats/ads --- you can whitelist it with @@||youtube.com/api/stats/ads )

Tried with German and US IP.

Could you please export the log and attach it here, thank you.
Do you see any blocked requests from "googlevideo.com/videoplayback" ?

Please try these rules (each by its own):
Code:
@@||googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/id$domain=youtube.com
@@||youtube.com/pagead/viewthroughconversion^
@@||youtube.com/pagead/conversion/?ai=
@@||googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/viewthroughconversion/*$domain=youtube.com
So far I did not notice any ads when I whitelisted it.

This seems to also happen in Windows. I've seen ublock origin users experience this and it's driving me nuts even with no user filters on it. Seems to be a new way Google is handling the ads. I've been making sure everything is up to date.
