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