Yeah, i will give this Unbound a try for a week to see if it helps. I am aware of YT Premium but that would undermine the spirit of this community.

Blocking YouTube adds with DNS seems impossible for me. I’m using this on my Nvidia Shield TV:
It can even skip sponsor parts of videos.

For other android, youtube vanced works perfectly.
