Delay at the start of YouTube videos with adblocking script

    There is a noticable delay before videos start to load (play button unclickable) on YouTube when I use the All-U-Need script. I use defaults for the script and I'm not using Pixelserv.

    However, if I use Adblock Plus in my browser together with the script, the delay is gone. So:

    Script only - delay
    Adblock Plus only - no delay
    Script and Adblock Plus - no delay
    No Adblocker - no delay

    What confuses me is how the delay is gone when I use both script and Adblock Plus. The script in the router blocks the ad before it reaches my computer, correct? So how can Adblock Plus in the browser fix it then?

    Browser: Chrome
    Router: Linksys E4200 Shibby Tomato
