Sponsorblock (block sponsored segments on YouTube videos)

Post by GamOfCatAndOfMouse » Mon Sep 30, 2019 7:33 pm

I hope this topic is not against the rules of this forum and I am surprised that no one has spoken so far, I start.

On YouTube, I see more and more sponsored videos and especially those that start (without giving me time to stop the video or go back) by "this video is sponsored by ...". Sponsored and product placement invideo, unblockable by classic adblocks.

These sponsors and product placements are becoming more commonplace and are increasingly aggressive and even disguised.

I found, using Internet searches, this extension for browsers which, using a community of people that helps the extension to block and cut the sponsored parts in the videos in order to no longer be aggrieved by the loss of time and this advertising impossible to block by the classic adblock.

Anyone can find the sponsored sequences they are viewing and send them to the extension that will block them for all users who have the extension.

On the other hand, it's a pity that classic adblockers (like Adblock Plus or ublock Origin) do not block sponsored links and text ads in video descriptions, which the SponsorBlock extension does not do unfortunately.
