I have been working hard to try and combat this annoying issue. I do not want to allow ads as they can be a security risk, well the ones on YouTube as they have tracking. Anyway, I found another way around it, that seems to be working for now, they keep making code changes. The way I found only works in Linux and requires you to install an application, or two.

YouTube Red [Icon]

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Run the following command in terminal:
    $ sudo apt install snapd
    Step number two installs an application store that is commonly used on Linux.
  3. Run the following command in terminal:
    $ sudo snap install red-app
    Step number three installs an application called “Red – Youtube Client for Linux”.
  4. Open the app called “Red” or “red-app”.
  5. Make sure you check for updates by occasionally running the command,
    $ sudo snap refresh
  6. You are now finished. Hopefully this works.Note: If anyone is having issues, let us know, and I am sure one of use will have something that can add to help.
