Sure, I can get everything to play if I disable ad blocking, but that's not why we're here. :-)

I have Adblock Plus version 1.13.4 on Chrome on a Mac: Version 61.0.3163.100 (Official Build) (64-bit). I am in the United States.

I am subscribed to Easylist, which is updated and is enabled. I do not have any other filter lists enabled.

My main purpose in using ABP is to skip the commercials on streaming video. Recently I have had to whitelist nbc.com, cwtv.com, and usanetwork.com because I am not able to stream video with Adblock Plus enabled.

NBC.com either plays the ads (as if there is no adblocker on), or the video never loads and a white arrow just spins forever on a black screen. Here is an example of a video:

Code: Select all

https://www.nbc.com/law-and-order-speci ... so/3596756
CWTV.recognizes the adblocker and won't play. Here is an example of a video that I can't play with ABP enabled:

Code: Select all

http://www.cwtv.com/shows/jane-the-virg ... 7ee959efa2
USAnetwork.com skips the video entirely, starts to load the next video in the queue, skips that one, etc. Here is an example of a video that it skips through entirely when ABP is enabled:

Code: Select all

http://www.usanetwork.com/mrrobot/video ... aver-modeh
I know that networks have just gotten better at thwarting adblockers, but does anyone know of any updated or new filters that might allow me to stream video from these 3 networks without ads?

Here is a list of the other filters I have added manually. (Are any of these hurting things?)

Code: Select all
