This addon skips YouTube ads automatically soon after YouTube provides a skip button. This is not ad-blocker but a light-weight plugin that skips ad if it's skippable as soon as YouTube provides 'Skip Ad' button.

User reviews
It does work - it skips at exactly 5 second mark, unfortunatelly youtubers don't get paid if 5-30sec video. Also it does not mute ads so if 1 is super annoying - tough love!
