Can someone please tell me why every time I try to look at a You Tube video I get a error message then I wait a minute or two and the video comes on?

    Do the usual Firefox things - disable extensions and make a new profile.  If issue goes away, one or the other is causing it.

    Thank you, I looked in extensions and I think it was an ad blocker causing it.

    Adblocker?

    Youtube have changed the way the adverts are pushed. Think it was 2 days ago I had an advert on Youtube
    first time in many years. Checked my addons and my adblocker had an update pending, updated it and
    no more adverts.

    Youtube are pushing more adverts onto creators, adverts in the middle of your videos that are 8 minutes long where
    previously they needed to be over 10 minutes. And it is being applied to creators existing videos also. I know
    a few channels where they make the video as close to 10 minutes as possible and then cut off just before.

    Those videos will now risk getting adverts in the middle, and its an opt out thing not opt in. 

    Youtube wants to feed as many if not more adverts than standard TV it seems. How many useless adverts do
    viewers want to see every 8 minutes?
