Heres a screen shot of what the ads look like, ranging from 10 secs, to 4 mins https://imgur.com/2VGeiBl

I manually added the filter

Code: Select all

youtube.com##video[src="blob:https%3A//www.youtube.com/eac9235f-3159-4e72-946c-3c22db48290a"]
and that seem to work.

Still doesn't work... I can't believe this...

EDIT: Seems to be working now, after a few Chrome restarts and patience. Thank you so much :D

Did you use the whole code? What I did is with the ad playing I manually blocked the element.

youtube.com##video[src^="blob:https"] seems to block the video itself too.

youtube.com##video[src^="blob:https"] Does not work for me, it also appears that ads are also playing on Pandora as well. no banners or popups, its either audio or Video

These codes added kinda worked, but I found some of the ads not blocking, so I manually block the codes.

But make sure

Code: Select all

youtube.com##.video-stream.html5-main-video
is not added.

Just these:

Code: Select all

youtube.com##video[src="blob:https%3A//www.youtube.com/6c890ff5-cfb7-44e2-9648-caf5885211d0"]
youtube.com##video[src="blob:https%3A//www.youtube.com/9431b17e-66ca-4142-aef7-7025160a227f"]
youtube.com##video[src="blob:https%3A//www.youtube.com/eac9235f-3159-4e72-946c-3c22db48290a"]
youtube.com##video[src="blob:https%3A//www.youtube.com/f66d5c78-90ff-46ef-a8c0-0bdeb64d097f"]
