    I'm pretty sure there is no such thing as an AC cap but I was watching a youtube video and the guy says it's an AC cap. Maybe he means an "Air-Conditioner" Cap?

    He's likely referring to a non-polarized (non-electrolytic) capacitor such as a film or ceramic type used to carry or filter AC signals.

    AC capacitor often refers to AC rated run capacitors for split phase motors.
    AC motor run rated (low ESR).
