Hi All!
Two days ago Avast Chrome extension began to popup this warning on any YouTube video.
Mac Os X Yosemite, latest Chrome (38.0.2125.122).
Can't see any links to yt.extensionstats.com in Youtube HTML code.
Need help.

try this:

disable/remove the google chrome plugin: Open SEO Stats(Formerly: PageRank Status) and the annoying popups on youtube stopped.

or try internet explorer for youtube.

Correction, it is not the Chrome extension that does this or blocks anything, it's the Avast Web Shield (as the dialog says) and works even without the extension.

Look at the URL you can see the domain extensionstats.com, this is not youtube, I think something (I guess some extension in your browser) is hijacking your links to youtube to gather usage data.

The problem has gone. I had suspicion on SaveFrom.net download helper, but can't replay this scenario anymore.
And No, I don't have Open SEO Stats(Formerly: PageRank Status) plugin.
