THIS EXTENSION DOES NOT BLOCK NORMAL YOUTUBE ADS, ONLY SPONSORS INSIDE VIDEOS. Use Adguard along with this extension to block both types.

SponsorBlock lets you skip over sponsors, intros, outros, subscription reminders, and other annoying parts of YouTube videos. SponsorBlock is a crowdsourced browser extension that let's anyone submit the start and end time's of sponsored segments and other segments of YouTube videos. Once one person submits this information, everyone else with this extension will skip right over the sponsored segment.

You can also skip over non music sections of music videos.

This is open source and the entire database is public.

Permission explanations:

Access your data for youtube.com, www.youtube-nocookie.com:
- Used to modify the YouTube webpage

Data usage explanations:

"Authentication Information": When you install the extension, it will generate a random "userID" that is used when submitting or voting. This allows you to appear on the leaderboard and helps determine reputation of submissions.

With this extension, you will automatically skip YouTube sponsors.

Finally for Safari!

This is one of the most useful extentions that there is, and I'm glad it's finally available for Safari. It just makes YouTube *so* much easier to watch. Not being innundated with baked-in sponsor ads for crap like Raid Shadow Legends has made my life much better.

Edit: Problem resolved.

Edit: Problem resolved.

Checked the settings of my YouTube app, browser app, YouTube setting within my browser and couldn’t find any way to turn this on as stated when you pay for the app. Still got sponsor adds in YouTube. Total waste, would not recommend. 🗑🗑🗑

Developer Response ,

This does not work with the YouTube app, and only works with Safari. You must go to m.youtube.com, then follow the screenshots in the app
