https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4J_6SUFUSzw is a video with a few ads. I also have no idea if its using HTML 5 or Flash.

It should be using HTML5, but turn on Chrome's click-to-play (a.k.a. "Let me choose when to run plugin content" in chrome://settings/content when you scroll down a little) to make sure; if you don't see a grey rectangle with a puzzle-piece icon, then it's using HTML5, and if you do, it's using Flash.

Also, it's a good idea to turn on click-to-play anyway, as a security feature and to decrease site loading times.
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.

you should tell us when the ads start, what minute, second ..

To completely set off flash, just go to chrome://plugins find flash and click disable

The ad starts when ever i click on the video, but for the first time its at the start and every 10 minutes, or if you refresh. Also i have disabled Flash player now and ads on youtube still play.

"allow some non intrusive advertising" is checked or unchecked ?

What version is your ABP ?
chrome version ?
I hope it's not about annotations on the video.

I noted some other guys complaining about ads in YT videos

Could be some google experiment, geographical ads based on your location

My ABP is at 1.9.1 and chrome is at Version 45.0.2454.85 m (64-bit). Also no its not about annotations, i turned them off long ago. Allow some non-intrusive advertising is unchecked. If more additional details help i am running windows 10, and around the time adblock stopped working on youtube is when i used the app CCleaner to clear my cache.

If you reseted / reinstalled chrome, well should be ok. I cant reproduce those ads, but apparently there are a lot of other guys experimenting them.
