    YouTube is fine for me, I have an adblocker. You should get one just for YouTube at least, saves bandwidth and time.

    The Adblocker is useless for Ads INSIDE the Videos here in Austria/Europe....

    You mean the yellow markers in videos? That's crazy, I'm sure there must be a solution. :o

    When you start a Video first comes an 6-10 Second Ad from maybe Hofer/Aldi and so on before you can skip.....
    After watching 2-3 videos then you have LONGER Ads up to 20 seconds before you can skip.....Not every time but more frequently :-(

    That sounds familiar, it's the same here. What adblocker have you tried?

    Ah I see, just googled it and many have the issue, it's a problem with your adblocker. Try getting the original "Adblock", or "Adblock Plus". I use the original one on chrome for example, and it works fine.

    That makes maybe the next "troubles"... it slows down the connection.i only have mobile LTE internet and most videos has than began to "stutter".....when I look on the Blocker during an 4 Minute video it blocks up to 30 attempts/elements....

    The blocker shouldn't take up more data than the videos it's blocking, it's almost negligible if I'm not mistaken. Why don't you try a different blocker?

    It's actually possible to set a flag in Firefox to prevent autoplay on those nasty sites (media.autoplay.allow-muted = false), but some nasty websites are still able to circumvent it with some noticable CPU usage while they try :/
