I'm using this script (last time I used YT, didn't see any ads):

PS: I hope this is not a violation. Last time I posted a link to script for YT download but got a warning from New Tobin Paradigm

It isn't a downloader which should maintain the status of Don't ask and Don't tell. Adblocking is a different matter though. As I maintain one I can't be all hardnosed about em tho if you support a creator or site.. There is a whitelist feature that should at least get a token consideration.

As for AGGRESSIVE ad bullshit by an evil monopoly more powerful than most governments, well I can't say much against that either. Blocking things remains a different matter than stealing things or defrauding things with an autoclick simulator. Which this is BUT it is targeted at the skip function NOT generic or clicking ads them selves AND is in response to escilating tactics. So the reality and all the objective factors going into it leads me to conclude that in this case for these reasons that I do not have a big issue with this script.

I noticed the last post in this thread is May.
Has everyone's adblockers started working?

I've been putting up with ads for a while now expecting a blocklist update to fix things. I finally started digging today to try to stop it since my PC is my only device that still gets YouTube ads.

YouTube ads
uBlock Origin (legacy) works for YouTube ads (and has for a very long time).

Thanks coffeebreak. That does seem to work. The settings page is a bit daunting compared to ABL and AB+, etc., but I'll take functional over simple any day.

That script worked for me and it goes better together with filterlist "Youtubeの広告をとにかくブロックするフィルタ"

Ads are hardly visible :thumbup:

I remember having this discussion

See here:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=26868&p=215645#p215645

To quote Tobin
I did some digging and here is what I have gathered so far...

These NEW ads that can't be blocked with ABPrime OR ABL are ads being served from Google's own video servers NOT from a third party. They are PART of the MSE Video Stream. Their player is increasingly becoming shit at catering to non-MSE enabled playback. For me personally, not being signed in has the youtube site LARGELY using the regular blockable method of video ad delivery but signed in it is obvious I am opted in to the new method.

tl;dr, I admit it.. UBO is the BEST and really ONLY option for blocking Youtube ads in a UXP application. Guess Gorhill and JustOff get the last laugh on this count. Maybe, one day, I will actually take UBO's engine and give it Adblock's UI then we will finally have a non-hostile UBO-capable adblocker that isn't total ASS to use.

ABL nor ABPrime understand the following rules:

Code: Select all

youtube.com##+js(json-prune, [].playerResponse.adPlacements [].playerResponse.playerAds playerResponse.adPlacements playerResponse.playerAds adPlacements playerAds)
youtube.com##+js(set-constant, playerResponse.adPlacements, undefined)
youtube.com##+js(set-constant, ytInitialPlayerResponse.adPlacements, undefined)
!#if adguard
youtube.com,youtube-nocookie.com#@#+js(json-prune, [].playerResponse.adPlacements [].playerResponse.playerAds playerResponse.adPlacements playerResponse.playerAds adPlacements playerAds)
youtube-nocookie.com,youtube.com#%#//scriptlet('json-prune', '0.playerResponse.adPlacements 0.playerResponse.playerAds playerResponse.adPlacements playerResponse.playerAds adPlacements playerAds')
!#endif
Nor can the ever because this type of script injection via adblock filters is dangerous as hell.. Adblock Plus got bit by this when they first did it. For now UBO is the only one that can do this safely. It would be better if, like I said in the other thread, if someone would adapt the existing userscript or create a new one for this so everyone can benefit. Perhaps a full on extension dedicated to it.

You can also use dl-dlp and download the video(s) you like.

So your solution is to steal?
