Uhh, that's a first timer. Google blocks access to YouTube until you accept the cookie policy, in which case it pipes your through adsense.

Interesting choice.

With the increasing number of this popping up, pro tip:

Use `youtube-nocookie.com/embed/<video id>` to watch videos without it.

It sure is a lot more annoying, but it actually has better availability than invidious instances.

Follow

Even better workaround: Block cookies on consent.youtube.com.

Solved the requests for me :)
