This is very misleading, but even worse now is that if you look up a tutorial it might be a scam, and with dislikes disabled it doesn't help identify it.

Great job, Google/YouTube.

Workarounds for us users who care about it; use YouTube Vanced app on Android, or something like Brave browser. The counter is still there in the API so it can be viewed given a few changes in a given client.

According to people on r/Vanced, the dislike thingy is defined on YouTube's API now and it stopped working for some people. Actually a lot of people is going to the Vanced subreddit to ask for it, and they are saying that so far is impossible to do fix this (funny, since technically it's not broken).

I checked, and there's no more dislike count on Vanced or Brave now, at least for me... maybe since today. So F.

I'm on the root version, counter is still there, maybe that's why. Normal Brave works though.
