What it Does
Automatically skips all skippable youtube ads the instant they appear. Works for ads at the beinging and in the middle of videos as well as the pop-up banner ads. Does not work for ads that have no skip option.
How it Works
Mid-video ads and banner adds are detected by a mutation observer that is added to the page whenever a new video is started. This listenes for added or removed child elements in "video-ads" DIV.
