YouTube Ad Skipper is an extension that auto skips ads after YouTube provides a skip ad button. It does not block an ad.

Image from store YouTube Ad Auto-skipper
Description from store A browser extension that automates skipping ad on YouTube. This is not an ad blocker; it just automates the process of clicking on the "Skip Ad" button on YouTube. This is basically useful when you are watching a YouTube video (or a playlist), and an ad starts playing. YouTube allows you to skip the ad after 5 seconds, but if you can't be bothered to click it yourself (or you are AFK), this extension clicks that button for you. Configurations can be set per channel. Did you know: YouTubers are paid 50% of the revenue for any ads playing on their videos. You can use this extension to play ads longer (or not skip) for channels you want to support, or skip them entirely for some. ========= New in version 2.0 ============= ‣ Ability to stop countdown to skip ad. Some ads just grip you and you want to watch it till the end. Now you'll see a countdown before the ad is skipped and a button to end the countdown. ========= New in version 1.0 ============= Ad Skipper now has so much more to offer: ‣ You can now set how long to play the ad before skipping (as fast as 0 seconds). ‣ Mute ads automatically Unlock these features with a support of just 3 cups of coffee a year (USD $7/yr). The original core feature is and will always remain FREE!

  • (2022-02-01) Endlessbattle: this is supposed to be an ad skipper why it has its own ads if u add ads to an ad skipper thats just dumb i know you need money but if u want money do it another way. btw love the extension when it doesnt have its own ads.
  • (2022-01-28) E24086242黃柏叡: It perfectly takes balance between the revenue of YouTubers and the audiences' watching experience. Nice work!
  • (2022-01-28) Ray Huang: useful and always works!
  • (2022-01-20) They call me Zhenya: I love the extension because it doesn't block ads but skip them, so you still support creators. A few days ago there was a youtube update and the extension stopped working. The creator FIXED the extension and it's up again, love you!
  • (2022-01-19) Rifalya: Loved the extension work really well now. The dev also responded within a week, when the extension stopped working and fixed it.
  • (2022-01-18) Seb Wilkes: EDIT: not working across multiple devices Does what it says on the tin, but also skips more than YouTube. Thanks so much!
  • (2022-01-15) SSP: No longer working
  • (2022-01-15) Ivan Jatnika: earlier this work fine but now really bad doesn't work
  • (2022-01-15) Layne W: worked perfectly for years but here lately its not working. like its just flat out not working consistently.
  • (2022-01-14) Hok4: it stopped working since 2 days ago, need an update
  • (2022-01-14) Mad Max: this has been a life saver for a long time
  • (2022-01-11) Tinashe Chitakira: Best thing ever!!! Stopped working recently, needs to be updated so it works again
  • (2021-12-03) John Perez: Works perfectly.
  • (2021-11-10) Billy Balaun: Used to work great. However, I believe YouTube has become aware and it no longer works...
  • (2021-11-06) Sayed Shaker: Great piece of code... However, I would change the skip time to randomise the amount of seconds, because I think YouTube has an algorithm that triggers once a bot skips the ads n amount of times on the 5 second dot, due to this they give these accounts ads that are non-skippable!
  • (2021-11-06) Mukul Kukreti: Though an excellent product It is not skipping ads now. It was perfect earlier. Please fix it.
  • (2021-10-07) Niyaz Aqmar: Hasn't work since October, maybe YouTube has changed it. I remember it did actually skipped the ads once...
  • (2021-09-26) Toaste: I genuinely thought it was fake and the replies were bots because it didnt work at first, but apparently you have to refresh youtube and then it works like a charm! highly recommend for when you are doing something on the side or are viewing you're computer from a distance.
  • (2021-09-17) Zachary Watson: Works as advertised. Skips the ad as soon as the 5 seconds are over. I watch a lot of youtube while I work and not have to fuss with the ads every couple of minutes has made the experience much better.
  • (2021-09-14) A Soul's Condition: it didn't work, maybe youtube disabled it recently?
  • (2021-09-07) Cooking with us: Not working
  • (2021-09-01) Matouš Hýbl: Works well
  • (2021-08-25) Brennan Young: Bravo! YouTube's Skip Ads button is not keyboard accessible. (That's a WCAG violation). This extension will be especially valuable to users who (for whatever reason) can not use a mouse or pointing device.
  • (2021-08-22) Jatin Singh Rawat: not skiping the ad
  • (2021-08-12) Sergei Ivanovich Mosin: it stopped working after a while
  • (2021-07-03) Brandon Gage: Amazing, works perfectly. would give 10 stars if I could
  • (2021-05-28) Rylie Joseph Santos: ok so it worked but when but then the next day it somehow didnt work anymore pls help me i still have the extension idk why it isnt working help!
  • (2021-05-20) Hân Tường: sometime works, mostly doesn't
  • (2021-05-12) Naphat Phrangam: At the time of writing this review (version 0.5.0), some ads can't skip I don't know why. but it's a good extension for who wants to support youtubers without block ads or buy youtube premium.
  • (2021-05-02) Fabio Rinaldi: Works perfectly!
  • (2021-04-30) Quý Nguyễn: nice
  • (2021-04-23) DOZO: Does exactly what is expected.
  • (2021-03-24) Иван Уткин: Thank you, perfect for playing music!
  • (2021-03-22) Wjatscheslaw Weinzettel: Simple and awesome. I wanted to support my subbed but also don't wanted to watch full length ads. It works! Thank you! One advise. Could you please add a time delay like 5-10 seconds. Maybe this could support youtubers better but still not annoying finding and clicking the skip button.
  • (2021-03-10) CuzImAzizx: ITS AN AMAZING TOOL! I have a suggestion, If there's a button that let you automatically mute the ad, then unmute when the video starts. It would be awesome.
