YouTube is the biggest video sharing blog (vlog). When youtube started, it was the free Platform without ads for everyone but over the Years, Youtube changed its Polices and started monetizing Ads on videos. Youtube categorized Ads into two types one is skippable Ads and unskippable ads. Skippable ads can be skipped after 5 sec, and unskippable ads can’t be skipped and last more than 20 sec. Youtube Ads became lengthy and disgusting in Youtube app. All traditions Ad blockers is no more available to block ads on youtube and the only way to Block Ads on youtube for android is by installing Adway.
Adway is a Xposed module to block ads on youtube, and it only works with Xposed framework installed. Xposed can’t installed in some mobiles as you can’t flash custom recovery because of locked bootloaders. I have faced the same issue and tried modifying youtube Apk, But it didn’t go much as Excepted. So, I have been searching for answers in some forums found a developer Arter97 who has found a solution for Disable ads on youtube.
