It's getting more and more agressive each day

But then i have this trick which works for now

First of all, deactivate your adblocker for Youtube

Then open extension uBlock origin -> my filters -> copy the code below (entirely not line by line) than paste

Code:


Hope it helps if like me, you don't care for ads

A friend told me about this like 2 weeks ago but it was fine for me on Chrome

But last week-end i started to get warnings, then warnings i could only skip after 5 seconds, and now some three strikes warning that if i don't disable the adblocker i'll get banned, wait i don't even have an account lol

They are trying to make us pay for Youtube Plus it's 15$ per month Laughing fuck them

Chrome is based on chromium. Firefox isn't.

So far adblockers are working fine on Firefox, and it should stay that way for the time being i think

Really ? I've seen comments from people who got this problem on Firefox

Might change browser just for that reason if anything, right now it's a coding war between Youtube and uBlock. Quite pathetic from Youtube tbh

I'm on Firefox. I noticed the warning on Youtube last week, but it popped up very infrequently and it wasn't much of an issue to cross it out and not think about it until the next time it appeared.

It's been popping up more frequently since yesterday, and it has a 5 second countdown now, so you can't remove it immediately. Youtube has gradually been getting worse since it was bought out by Google.

I really wish a rivaling platform would appear and actually be good enough to compete with them.

Soon you'll get the 3 strikes you're out pop-ups

https://www.reddit.com/r/uBlockOrigin/comments/178yasm/youtube_antiadblock_and_ads_october_16_2023/

Thankfully we are not alone and internet users are very resourceful to find solutions

There is also a PC app, called Freetube, i will read reviews tonight and maybe try it

That is to be expected to some extent, but I like to think that a different company would be running the platform better. Google has always rubbed me the wrong way, and I was reminded of that when I wrote a diet/health-related comment on Youtube the other day, and it was never actually published - presumably because I used the term "sex hormone binding globuline" and the comment was deemed to be inappropriate.

Google have gradually racked up the censorship since they became the owners of Youtube, and that's another thing I definitely don't like about the company. One can argue that censorship is necessary to some extent, but Google are the wokest of the woke as far as big companies go.

If you have uBlock origin just click on the reddit link i posted above and follow the steps. It's easy

Sometimes you'll have to reboot because Youtube is working actively to counter adblockers. I'd say every 2 days you have to reboot.

The way i see it, eventually Youtube will give up their daily updates because majority of people will just cope with the ads.

What do you mean reboot? Reinstall the ublocker?

I'm sure they'll find a way to circumvent that too hmm

Reboot as in reset to default and re-enter the quick fixes

The codes don't work anymore because Youtube does daily updates they are insane. Thankfully so does uBlock

Instead follow the steps on the Reddit thread in post #7 you won't need to enter codes. When you get the pop-up on youtube, just reboot uBlock and re-follow the steps.

Sounds like a lot of work to repeat that every 1/2 days is it even worth the hassle? I think I found a new workaround, just open youtube in incognito mode with adblockers enabled in private mode, works for me thus far

It takes less than 20 seconds but i guess using masturbito mode is even simpler. Not sure why Youtube don't detect your adblocker anymore but that's a good solution i was not aware of.
