blast. I tried these out and they didn't achieve the goal I desire. They did what I was trying to do (thank you!) but it seems that what I was trying to do was wrong. The sound for the pre-video ad would still play, I just wouldn't see the picture. I also wouldn't see the picture for the actual video. I was able to find a long pre-video ad. Even when I blocked the entire "ytd-app" (which removed almost all content from the page), the sound for the ad continued. I suppose this means the ad sound is coming from a different source. I am having difficulty finding that source... It's my guess that the ad is coming from one of the various scripts on the page. If this is the case, is AdBlock perhaps not able to block the ad?

You cannot block objects using hiding filters.

What if you'd try uBo (ublock origin) and see if fixes your issues ?

Thanks! I've not seen an ad since replacing AdBlock with ublock origin. I will return here if I notice this stops working.

Just don't use 2 adblockers: keep uBo and remove any other adblocker.

Just to know where your problem comes from...
Do you have the same issue if you test using a portable version of browser + AdBlock?

I searched but didn't see anything on here that asked this question. It is crazy because there is still stuff playing, but the cards at the end of videos covering them up!

Code: Select all

I'm trying to remove an element in the main logo from www.youtube.com. Recently I noticed that the logo changed to display "ADBLITZ" as part of an animation and if you hover your mouse over it then it takes you to a specific YouTube channel that only provides a link to another website full of ads (instead of taking you to the YouTube homepage). This infuriates me and so I decided to write my first AdBlock Plus filter. I have extensive CSS background.

I thought I could just select the element in order to create the filter, and upon investigating it looks like there's two separate clickable regions (one on the actual YouTube "play" icon and one on the Adblitz icon). So I'd like to remove the second region since that's the only part that doesn't link me to the homepage. Here's the filter that I came up with:

Code: Select all

youtube.com##ytd-topbar-logo-renderer map.ytd-yoodle-renderer area:not([href="/"])
That didn't work. I also tried these and they didn't work:

Code: Select all

youtube.com##area.ytd-yoodle-renderer:not([href="/"])
youtube.com##area.ytd-yoodle-renderer[alt="Cheer for your favorite Super Bowl videos"]
However if I manually remove elements in the JavaScript console using those same selectors, it does work:

Code: Select all

document.querySelectorAll('ytd-topbar-logo-renderer map.ytd-yoodle-renderer area:not([href="/"])')[0].remove();
So I looked through some documentation and saw that everything to do with CSS filters only talks about hiding elements instead of removing elements. So my question is, is it even possible to remove HTML elements? Hiding this won't work because an "area" element seems to be invisible anyways. Or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks!

Hello,

I use a Nokia 5 Android phone, with Android 7.1.2 and the January 2018 security patch. I use the Samsung Internet Browser (also available to non-Samsung devices via the Play Store) in combination with the Adblock Plus for Samsung Internet app that integrates in the browser. In the Adblock Plus for Samsung Internet app, Acceptable ads are turned off. Advertisements in gerenal are being blocked.
However, yesterday I noticed advertisements in both youtube.com and hotmail.com/outlook.com (I believe both these URLs redirect to some kind of live.com domain from Microsoft). After installing Firefox for Android on my phone and turning on the add-on Ublock Origin from there, I noticed that these ads were gone. Upon further investigation I have found out that the Adguard Mobile Ads filter:

Code: Select all

https://filters.adtidy.org/extension/chromium/filters/11.txt
which is turned on by default in Ublock Origin, is the filter that blocks the respective advertisements. Installing the Adguard for Samsung Internet app and turning on the mobile ads filter from there I could also block the advertisements in my main Samsung web browser.

Could you please reverse engineer how Adguard is able to block the mobile ads and than add the same filters to EasyList?

Thanks in advance.

Hi. Ever since Youtube has a new layout and stuff, I am quite unhappy with it. AdBlock Plus won't block video suggestions, watch related, or what to watch next and now I can't switch back to old youtube now.

Does anyone have updated filters for the stuff that I mentioned so I won't be bothered by Youtube's watch related, video suggestions and what to watch next at the end of a video? Any help would be grand.

have you tried the filters I posted on Jan 25 2018? Also I agree it's annoying they removed the function to switch to the old layout. You can still force it by adding ?disable_polymer=1 to the end of the url though. I just use a tampermonkey script to have the old layout.

It is, but it's very annoying, it covers the bottom left comments when scrolling until you close the popup.

Anywhy, you forget the most important. You do not say if the suggested filter works for you.

The youtube tv popup does not always appear, so I will test it for a day or more and see if that fixes the issue.

That filter did not fix the bug, it is still appearing.
This may be the correct html code that causes it to appear.

After one month without ad on YouTube mobile version, the big video ad in first place in homepage is back. It's very difficult to block because, like Facebook, Google change the code to bypass the adblockers. I see ads bypass my adblocker in google search on mobile, it's very annoying so I changed for another and better search engine for private data and without ads. YouTube and Google is same society.
