What Ad-Blockers work on YouTube?

I'm okay with a short ad before a video, but the number of ads has recently gotten ridiculous: 2 before, 2 after, often several in the middle... As far as I'm concerned YouTube has gone and killed the golden goose and now I won't watch ANY ads.

Which brings me to my question; what ad-blockers work best to block all youtube ads? I currently use Safari but I'm not against going to another browser (besides chrome) if necessary.

    you need to invest in a good HOSTS file to block absolutely all ads.

    MVPs website has one. a quick google search will match it.

    otherwise, i only use AdBlock Plus.

    If you really want to block ads n stuff with easy, then you should look into setting up a PiHole DNS on your local network.

    It's amazing how many DNS requests it blocks, and yet you never see the difference!

    Don’t do that. Ad blockers aren’t right
