youtube captions keep turning on after ads – permanent fix

how to permanently fix captions turning on after ads on YouTube!

this one has been bothering me for a while.captions in youtube turning themselves on automatically. even if you hit the icon to turn it off, it will be re-enabled after every advert. it quickly gets frustrating.

I noticed that there was a setting in the yt android app, which I disabled. when captions came back, I checked the settings again, and it was enabled again.

I checked in youtube on my desktop, and the same thing –  he setting was turning itsself back on.
