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

I was wondering if there was any solution to the NBC problem. The ads still play when I try to watch something.

Code: Select all

When I use Chrome with ABP and all other extensions disabled I still get the ads. When I use Chrome with UBO with all other extensions disabled I still get the ads. I've tried all the filters that have been recommend in this post previously.

Are there any new custom filters that would block the ads and allow the video to play?
