CWTV.com seemed to have updated their ads again. Any idea if there's a filter to block the ads?

Give me a bit to gather some information for you. It seems it's not every video yet, but i'm using Chrome, v63.0.3239.84. I was using AdBlock Plus (not sure version), but switched to the latest uBlock Origin 1.14.24 and had the same issue.

I think it was on the latest episode of The Flash, so as soon as i get a screenshot I will post it.

On this page, they implemented a new ad system that seems to embed it into the video dynamically, since the ads do change. I'm hoping it's simple enough to figure out.

Here is the screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/RbQaIs1.jpg

probably it's about SSAI (Server-side ad insertion). You can see in uBo logger uplynk stuff.

So, in this case ...nothing to do.

Thanks for clearing that up. I suspected that might be the case, considering how the ads change and it still changes the slider. They have been trying to beat ad blockers for a while.

CWTV.com looks all messed up for me > https://i.imgur.com/U2C9uE2.png

I tried on latest Chrome and latest Firefox, with my own settings/filters and with factory settings. The site always looks like that to me. At first I thought it was my VPN but after disconnecting it and clearing cookies it still looked like that.

For right now, for me, uBlock origin works.
