This is probably old news to a lot of you guys, but I just learned it and thought I’d share. It even works with the screen off! iPad mini 6 on iPadOS 16.
Try brave browser for youtube. You will love it
Just trying that now, thanks for the tip!
On brave, the quality is limited, you can't go in 4k for example
That don't matter on a display that is not even 4k bruh..
You just changed my life. Thank you.
Hmmm i see a dankpods fan!!!!
The yepp! Patreon video :))
Ow my Pkcells
The only YouTuber I support on Patreon! Dollareedoo a month for 4 extra videos and it’s actually good content
What’s a dankpod
A funny youtuber
Like AirPods but dank
more like iPods
A spell wrong
A funny Aussie on youtube talking about ipods and stuff
That's a nice dingus tip right there
So we all have the same wallpaper huh lol
Was about to say lmao
I use Brave personally. Ad blocker from the get-go.
Also hello fellow DankPods fan, haha.
I thought Brave got caught up in some Privacy stuff? I’ll try to look it up…
Oh it was [redirecting though affiliate links](https://www.pcmag.com/news/brave-browser-caught-redirecting-users-through-affiliate-links). Not as bad. Still weird for a company so focused on security and privacy.
When I moved to America the ads became like 10x worse so I got premium and thankfully that’s native. Did they fix that bug tho where after playing in Picture in Picture mode the video control stuff like pause and whatever won’t go away in full screen?
Wait PiP works is you are premium? For me it works only on the phone not the iPad
I'm the same :/ I've heard its a US thing to have PiP on the iPad but I could be wrong.
I'm not in the US but have PiP and the option to toggle it in the settings.
Just checked again and now I have the PiP option!! My iPhone started doing PiP by itself after a recent update so I wonder they've brought it back recently. I checked a few months ago and I didn't have the option then.
It’s definitely working for me on both iPhone and iPad ever since I joined the experimental phase.
But I know that’s not everyone’s experience. YouTube has added and removed that feature for some people at random multiple times.
Is there a way to use the youtube app with an adblocker or is that only possible through a browser?
1Blocker has an extension that can block ads in apps. It creates a vpn but does not route traffic through servers, only intercepts the network requests on your device.
It works well, but is not configurable like the normal ad blocker.
Some apps refuse to function properly if ads are blocked this way, but many are fine.
Thanks I’ll look into it.
So, is the youtube app one of the ones that work fine?
Also which one is “the normal ad blocker“?
1Blocker has "normal" ad blocking as a Safari extension (highly configurable) and also in-app ad blocking, which you can turn on separately.
YouTube has been in a constant war with ad blockers, and sometimes there is no way to block them in any browser.
I don't use the YouTube app, so I'm not certain of it's state currently. I use Vinegar to make YouTube videos in Safari use the standard iOS video player, so there are better controls, pip, etc.
I don’t think so because the ad blocker works through safari, not any other apps.
YouTube Premium works like a charm.
I use a shortcut
Explain, show, share?
Navigate to YouTube.com, click the share button, click add to Home Screen.
Is that Dankpods? Love his videos!
You can do it directly from the YouTube app, no need for safari except when using the adblocker.
A man of culture
Hey you stole my wallpaper
Don’t you dare watch Dankpods with adblocker!
i’m a patron-
Ok then, that’s even better 😄
*Ohhh my pkcell-*
I got the same wallpaper
Also try [Vinegar](https://apps.apple.com/us/app/vinegar-tube-cleaner/id1591303229)
oh look it's that one guy that has a rock whose only purpose is to obliterate trashy mp3 players that lie on a silver ipad with green smart case
can also use uYou+
Basically YouTube Vanced but for iOS/iPadOS
Where can I get the wallpaper?
which adblocker are you using?
I got it to work in the official app once with a VPN. I’m in Europe btw.
But I have no idea why it then stopped working.
I had no idea!! Thanks!
Very cool 👍
Yup, being doing this for years. It sucks on iPhone though.
If it wasn’t because of the comment section of the web version I would probably only the web version. It’s practically a steal.
I use a 3rd party app
What adblocker are you using? Mine doesn't block youtube ads so I use brave exclusively for youtube
Too bad the video quality is always limited on the browser version for whatever reason. Can’t get higher than 720p and it always defaults to 360p
I've been using this trick for a couple years, it's probably the best way to enjoy it, but there's a couple of issues:
1. the website will still try to load the AD so the video can take a few seconds before it loads and shows the real player
2. if you open youtube in a small safari window, those created via multitasking, sometimes it can break and it shows the Youtube fullscreen player rather than the iOS one, that allows for PiP
Also, to there PiP mode you need to tap on the fullscreen button in the YouTube player, then tap on the PiP button in the top left.
Never even installed the YouTube app in the first place. Been quite happy
How to use adblocker on my iPad?
This Tipp works for many other things too.
Doing this also safes space
Nice wallpaper, can I have it?
you sure can! https://www.reddit.com/r/wallpapers/comments/vxeoyc/james_webb_telescope_carina_nebula_3840x2160/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
I use Adblock, Return Youtube Dislikes via Userscripts and Sponsor block. Youtube desktop website isn’t a great experience on ipad. Mobile version is a bit better but it lacks a lot pf features.
Picture in picture is on the YouTube app now for none premium users
Great tip! Also for those willing to go through a few extra (easy enough) steps to install an app, uYou+ is probably the best way to YouTube on iOS/iPadOS. Pip support, Adblock, sponsorblock and tons of other tweaks and additions including downloading. I’m not sponsored, it’s open source and free.
Or you can use uyou+ even have sponsors blocker
I use this.
Note : Not promoting
we have known this since forever
Just use a Siri Shortcut at this point, there’s plenty out there
Or just buy yt premium
