Does not work .. means ? is the player blocked ? audio ads ? how to reproduce ? (if audio ads, when ? after how many seconds / minutes, example ?)

Sorry, I meant the audio ads were blocked on play.spotify.com but after this update from Spotify (open.spotify.com) the audio commercials still disturb :(
I have no idea, but I appreciate every 30 minutes

If you go to play.spotify.com, you will automatically land on open.spotify.com

||crashdump.spotify.com
||adeventtracker.spotify.com
||log.spotify.com
||analytics.spotify.com
||ads-fa.spotify.com

I made an account just for this post. The one breaking the player is

Code: Select all

||spclient.wg.spotify.com
So your list should look like this:

Code: Select all

||audio2.spotify.com
||crashdump.spotify.com
||adeventtracker.spotify.com
||log.spotify.com
||analytics.spotify.com
||ads-fa.spotify.com
||audio-ec.spotify.com
||heads-ec.spotify.com
||prod.spotify.map.fastlylb.net
||sto3.spotify.com
||upgrade.spotify.com

Hi, also here the field:

spclient.wg.spotify.com

if commented, crash the web player.
Without code comment, the player work but still playing the ADS.
Nobody know a valid method to turn off these ADS please?

thanks in advance

The fix

Post by yak »

Hey Mates, I too don't like the ads. Here's the fix:

Get the adblock plus extension then go to adblock plus options where it allows you to Block and ad by it's URL

In the right input box where it talks about the domain, type

Code: Select all

open.spotify.com
and the input box on the left type

Code: Select all

/mp3-ad/
. Then click the block it button.

Now when spotify wants to play an ad you get a pop up in the top of the page saying some rubbish about reloading your page because of an error but then it goes on to the next song without an ad.

@yak cloudfront is a content delivery network which host legitimate content not an ad network.

to be more specific you have to add

Code: Select all

||cloudfront.net^$domain=spotify.com
