Did Youtube finally get around adblock?
for the pats week or 2, i have been worried b/c i'd get error messages when trying to watch videos. a quick F5 solved the problem

however, it appears as of about 30 minutes ago ads are finally playing on my browser. no more errors so i assume they've gotten around it

anyone have any ad blocking software that works well other than ABP?

It'll probably be temporary.


Ad blocking is a cat and mouse game. The ad blocking software developers will soon figure out what Google is doing and then they'll adjust the software.

add ublock and use Brave as your browser, triple protection.

So far, nothing ad wise from Youtube has gotten around my uBlock Origin. I use this extension and ABP.

Don't these block the ads the run during videos (like commercials on regular tv) or the ads all over the page that I accidentally touch with phone or iPad because on app they force you to keep screen on active with their app without paying extra like playing sound in background is something on level of their content pricing even though they used to include it.

These can also bump me into Safari stopping what i was listening to and when i come back youtube is ready to push a free trial of their paid service which includes playing in background just like after some extremely loud commercials run forcing me to turn down volume & later getting free trial offer of plan without commercials.

I try to use guided access and block off touch screen to avoid accidentally touches wren just listening to something, but it's not a perfect solution.

I'm surprised they don't block folks with adblockers like plenty of sites do.

I came to the conclusion they would rather track what you watch and use that info than force advertisements on you.

As of yesterday I wasn't having any advertisements on my PC.
