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.

The platform keeps going downhill. After waging war on adblockers, now the new UI update is the worst I have ever seen from any website quite frankly. Borderline unusable layout, and I have also noticed that they keep recommending me a random video every day from small channels with 100 views. No thanks.

And don't get me started on Shorts, they are absolutely redundant and get in the way of the actually valuable content. Why does every freaking website have to have Shorts, reels etc nowadays..

I mean, do you have to ask? It's because short form videos are wildly popular. Now, and for the last decade. They wouldn't do it if they wasn't successful, and based on the number of shorts my near-retirement father watches, it's definitely successful. Not that I disagree with you in general about the shorts, which suck ass.

As for me, my brother got a family subscription to YouTube premium, and I've been reaping the benefits of that for a couple years now. Tbh, of all the websites in the world (maybe outside Google and Wikipedia), if youtube is gonna ask for money from me to make the experience great, I'll do it.

Much rather have YouTube premium than pay for some sort of Netflix or HBO Max or something. I use YouTube more, that's for sure.

I like the Youtube shorts i can watch them for hours since the algorithm is spot on to my liking. Don't really mind being recommended less popular stuff.

Then honey made me realize this is exactly the same as Tik Tok whose users i've been mocking and calling losers for years :facepalm:

I dont even mind shorts that much, but why not give the user an option to disable them? Why do they have to cover 50% of my screen if I dont want them?

All it really takes is one button to hide that part, or at least make it smaller. Instead they give zero customization options because... they can i guess.

Theres an addon called "Enhancer for Youtube" if anyone is pissed at the new UI, not only does it revert back to the old layout but you can also change colors and make website look cool and hip Thumbs up
