For some videos on youtube I have to wait 5 seconds to skip an ad, it just started happening today, does anybody know why?

thanks.

Your internet connection was so slow it took YouTube a couple years to update for you.

Youtube has had advertisements for years now.

Which browser are you using? Get adblock plus.

AdBlock is better if you are using Chrome.

If you are using a Firefox variant, Adblock Edge is the same as Adblock Plus but without the "allow acceptable ads" thing.

I'm using Firefox, I have Adblock Plus, I have not gotten ads since installing it until today.

Either go into the options and uncheck "Allow acceptable ads" or get Adblock Edge instead. It's a fork of the Adblock Plus source code, but doesn't even have that "feature" or a number of other "features" added to Adblock Plus over time which make it more inefficient.

I have ABP and a few weeks ago it stopped blocking ads for no apparent reason. I right clicked and went into Options. My blocked list was unchecked for some reason. I checked it again and I'm back in business.
