Youtube Livestreams Not loading in HTTPS

Since a few days that with some rule change i would think, youtube livestreams have stopped working in Google Chrome and firefox with the https everywhere extension installed, regardless of if the rule for youtube is active or not.

Example: if i open a livestream( any really ) like this one randomly picked it will say "Please stand by" Forever, if i open the same link on Internet explorer (with https) it will work just fine, or in Chrome without the HTTPS everywhere extension installed.

The first thing it does after i uninstall the HTTPS everywhere extension and reload it, is show an Ad, so i would assume the https everywhere is making ads not load correctly and the video doesn't take over correctly. ( this used to happen with adblock plus before oddly enough)

This is caused by the YouTube (partial) and Google API rules. Once you disable both of these the LiveStream loads correctly.

No longer reproducible, so I guess it has been fixed.
