    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.

    Update
    The piped sites were giving me issues today and yesterday. You can view the website and copy over your playlist, but for now the videos are not working.

    Workaround
    You can use Invidious (https://yt.oelrichsgarcia.de/) to make YouTube video work again. It also allows subscriptions importing.

    Positives
    Ads skipped.

    Negatives
    Sponsors not skipped.

    piped.dragon.space is still not working, so if you need an alternative one, where your login should still work, and all your saved data, you can use the link below.

    An update to this post on how you can get YouTube to work constantly.

    1.  Install Piped Watch for your browser [Chrome] [Firefox] [Brave]
    2. Check Piped sites to see which ones work.
    3. Open YouTube.
    4. Right-Click the video you want to watch and open in a new tab.
    5. The video will open, and you should be able to watch the video.

    Note: You might need to check the quality as when set to auto, it might use a very low quality.
    Note [2]: You can open the video by clicking the video like normal, and press F5 on the new page to open it in a Piped site.
    Note [3]: Repeat step 2 if the Piped site is not working or the video is not loading in a Piped site.
