Hi there. Digital product manager for Purch here. We own multiple websites, and it seems like the way we add videos to our sites is getting blocked by adblockers. We've been getting a lot of complaints from users who come to our articles for a video but are unable to see it due to their adblock extensions.

Here is an example page where there should be a video:

Code: Select all

https://www.space.com/news 
https://www.space.com/41164-mining-moon-water-plans-take-shape.html
Screenshot of missing video with adblock on: https://imgur.com/a/fZlTjEk

Screenshot of video working with adblock off: https://i.imgur.com/cB9uzek.png

We use the same method to inject videos on our other sites, and it would really help us and our users if you could add the following exception to your list:

Code: Select all

@@||servebom.com/tmn*.js$script,domain=space.com|laptopmag.com|toptenreviews.com|shopsavvy.com
Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. I sincerely look forward to your response!

Best,
Yusang Lee

Hi,

I just wanted to follow up on this request. I tested the above implementation using my personal whitelist, and I can confirm that the video will show, but the pre-roll ad will be blocked.

I believe this is the ideal scenario for our users, since the ones who are using adblock will be able to view the videos while still avoiding the ads.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions/concerns, or if there is any additional information I can provide to help move our request forward.

Thank you very much,
Yusang Lee
