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?)

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

https://www.nbc.com/the-brave/video/enhanced-protection/3605860
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?

When you attempt to watch an episode, site is aware you have an adblocker on and will not run.

reloading page and still having ublock on, ads will play as normal.

Hi everyone!
I have a problem: If I want to watch a show on nbc.com this shows up:
Sorry, we can't play this video in its intended experience because we're unable to load the accompanying message from our sponsors.
If you are using ad-blocking software, please disable it and try loading the page again
I disabled my adblocker plus but nothing. I have installed tampermonkey and the script "Anti Ad-Block Killer: reek" but nothing.
I have subscribed to EasyList in the filters of Adblock Plus. What can I do? I've read online...but there's apparently no solutions. I've been using ExpressVPN to unblock these kinds of sites...
Thanks

YouTube videos on all content from NBC do not play - audio is present. Disabled ABP, videos from NBC play.

My bad. NBC posted videos on YouTube are now working. I removed, then reinstalled ABP, filters updated, and voilà, they now play. :biggrin:

When I try to watch The Voice on NBC I get the message that I need to remove the ad blocker. I used to be able to find threads with similar issues and add the filter, but for some reason, with the new changes I can't find help in the forums (via similar questions) and nothing fixes it.

Code: Select all

Thanks for any help with this.

When I try to watch The Voice on NBC I get the message that I need to remove the ad blocker.
I just tested it, with the default lists, works fine. Occasionally I needed to hit refresh, but seems good

Using only default filters, all custom filters disabled. Cleared all cache, restarted FF v59.0.2, UBO v1.15.24 with latest default filters.
nbc will not play any videos using just defaults, to get it to work you must now white list nbc
Sorry, we can't play this video ... we're unable to load the accompanying message from our sponsors.

Intense, none of those filters are working now. Only white listing lets the videos play.
Not even just the default filters are working any longer.

enduser, since I switched to the AdGuard ad blocker, NBC videos have been playing just fine, and without ads.
