uBlock: YouTube - "An error occured. Please try again later"

Solution: uBlock: YouTube – “An error occured. Please try again later” error

If you use uBlock (or uBlock origin) and get an error playing videos on YouTube, you might have a filter enabled that causes an interference.

I recommend you to disable any filters in the Privacy section such as:

From my experience, Fanboy’s Enhanced Tracking List might specifically be causing this issue on YouTube. Once disabled, everything works fine again.
