Well dude, the rules you agreed to when you signed up say, read the op (original post) and at least the last 10 pages before posting a question like that.
Okay so I fixed it by not forcing vp9 codec.
You buy yt red. Or use an app that allows you to download video. Vanced does not. You can save for off-line use to be played in the app if it is available in your region (it's the same as regular YouTube in this regard).
I JUST started getting these same ads you're getting, just today. I've been using vanced for over 4 months now and it never happened on my end before. I think Google is doing something different to push some ads through.Why am i getting ads in the home screen? Ads don't show up in the videos just the home screen. Weird. It suddenly just happened yesterday. Before that i never had any ads.

I use YouTube extensively while at work (like literally 5+ of use a day) and I'm gonna test the living [email protected]^# out of it for ya. LolI made a new build yesterday once someone reported the same thing in Discord. Join there to download it (not sure when I have time to upload it on the site).
And to everyone talking about the home page ads. The problem with those is that they seem to be country specific and use the same layouts as the normal videos (and to mess it up, not just one layout but multiple). This makes it so I can't just block the layout because then the whole home tab would be blank .
I've used VPN to get some of the ads but I have no idea if those are what everyone gets. And those ads seem to be delivered in the same protobuf message as the videos so I don't think that any adblocker like adaway etc. can actually block those. My guess is that if you don't get those ads, you are just lucky that youtube doesn't send them to you.
I made that 13.49.52 nonroot with new kind of adblocking and hope people test and report if they still get ads on that. So far I don't remember anyone reporting so. People using the rooted version can install this nonroot alongside the rooted one and delete it after testing.
I feel you bro always the same person asking the same thing over and over again despite getting a reply and or advise etc it does get infuriating and i can also see why devs get annoyed they do this as a hobby to help us and ask nothing in return people just dont seem to understand that its not a payed job its what they do after work or during thier time with family.
The issue is resolved now. I have found the setting to stop this inplace video play.(Resolved) - [New behavior observed - Automatic inplace video play]
I am running non-root Vanced app v16.20.35 on Android 11 on my smartphone.
Since yesterday I have noticed a new behavior in the app and that is it automatically starts playing the video inplace. Once the video is finished the screen is automatically refreshed and the top most video on the screen starts playing inplace. Kindly see the attached image and the circled part. That equalizer type graphics was not there earlier. Also the video time now goes to zero.
Does anyone know is this something youtube introduced recently. Do note that the feature may be experimental and may not be available everywhere. I do not have YouTube app on my smartphone (disabled) to test it on my own.
When you open the app for the first time, everything is fine. As soon as you touch the screen for scrolling or anything else then usually the middle video (sometimes it is topmost video, I guess it depends on the focus) automatically starts playing inplace. I could not find any new setting to control it.
The current way to stop it when the video starts playing inplace, then click it. It opens up like it used to do. Then stop it and minimize it if you want to browse/scroll the videos above or below this video on the page you are coming from. Or scroll down the see the videos available on the current page. Now the videos will not play inplace.
Please do let me know if you need more information.
Please be aware that there are root and non-root YT version (you should have seen that when installing), with different architecture.
