[How To] Block Every Single Tiny Ads, and YouTube Ads!



  • @iAN-CooG Interesting...

    I blocked all non https requests, and it still loads perfectly fine... πŸ€”



  • @TheQuantumAlpha I don't know, only shows as a completely blank page to me, nothing shown.
    oh, it seems that if I click on the link in your post it goes to http://odysse.com then if I type on a new tab https://odysse.com vivaldi says
    This site can’t be reached
    odysse.com unexpectedly closed the connection.

    but if I search on google https://www.google.com/search?q=Odysse.com and click on the link, the site actually opens for me.

    This is way too weird.

    @rdreammaker As someone with 2 YT channels I feel that as I personally cannot chose which adverts are shown, yet advertisers have the choice who's channels they get shown on, I don't want their stinking money.
    Heaven forbid my channel showed someone an advert for Norton or Mcafee, I would rather delete the channels than give missleading info in adverts I can't opt out of.
    This is even more of a problem when it comes to malvertising missinformation campaigns, where again I would not be able to opt out of anything I thought was unwanted.

    If you were a TV channel or station you would would get to choose exactly what adverts you carry.
    If YT gave channel owners that power it would be more honest and trustable.

    If channels want revenue then sponsorship and patrions is honest and favourable.
    Twit.tv have existed for years with this model. The presenters get to use the products and give a user perspective.

    All YT channels of all size are about to get spammed with adverts, https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-55016142
    so the war is on.

    I whole-heartedly agree, and it also relates slightly to the point I made amongst my previous rant, regarding webmasters "passing the buck". Webmasters or YouTube channels want the money from ads, which is understandable, but not enough care whether the ads are relevant, inoffensive and virus/spyware-free. They want the benefits without the responsibilities. If more cared like @Dr-Flay does, the content platforms would be forced to offer the page-owners choice as to what was displayed, and/or the ad networks would be forced to clean up their act.

    Until either of these happens, I'm not displaying ads for anyone as I don't want to execute malicious/surveillance code on my hardware and waste my bandwidth (and therefore money). (Additionally, I don't see why watching videos of Lamb of God and Immortal should lead me to be bombarded with "Christian dating" adverts, lol)!

    If I can't view a channel or a webpage because they can't afford to run without ads, then I don't care, I just go elsewhere. If the website or channel disappears, then so be it. I support certain sites and channels with donations, using their online shop, buying from their sponsors/partners, etc. It's fairer anyway, and cuts-out the scummy middleman.


  • - Ambassador -

    @Dr-Flay This is what's great about sponsors. The deal is between you and them, you get to accept or decline it. Also no affect from adblockers since the ad is in your own video, by you. This is the best approach with youtube ads - if you're big enough to be attractive to them.

    @jamesbeardmore The trouble is that Google is getting greedy

    I recommend that users who are annoyed by excessive ads use an ad-blocker, or Vivaldi Browser with built-in ad-blocking.



  • Android blessed with Vanced youtube. It completely block ads and support background play.



  • @balachandarsmr May try NewPipe!! πŸ˜ƒ


  • Vivaldi Translator

    Plus 1 for Newpipe.
    You won't regret using it and it has some handy extra features like the ability to download the audio or video to a folder.

    BTW. I have a 1-hit solution for the problem of advertising being out of control.

    If those who show adverts are held liable for the content, and could be sued for giving you malware, displaying scam adverts or breaching your privacy, you would soon see webmasters and content makers suddenly become more involved in hand-picking their relationships with advertisers.



  • how to block ads on streaming sites? is there anyway ?
