mac – YouTube problems on Safari

I keep having problems using YouTube on the latest version of Safari. Videos will skip to the end after trying to watch one, making it almost impossible to watch them altogether. Ads on YouTube won’t play, or play a bunch of them in a row while skipping frames, along with a plethora of other problems. Its infuriating and I’ve tried to do everything I can to prevent this from happening like disabling my ad-blockers, clearing the cache and search history, but to no avail. I don’t know why this keeps happening, or if there even is a solution for it at all, but its infuriating.
