advertisings on youtube

Recommended Posts

Hi to all :-) I love browser maxthon, but how can I stop advertisings at the beginning of a video inside youtube? Adhunter doesn't work also if it is "on"

Curious to know why Adhunter has issues with some of these ads?

What is it that the extensions do differently? Or is it just a case of the dev's not updating the rules for the latest changes, meaning that once they are worked out they can be added to Adhunter?

Who says that the devs are responsible to add filter rules?

Anyone can offer a solution by listing rules that would block those adds. I think the devs gave us the tools, the least we could do is use them...

Even adblock can only be as good as its rules.

Yeah, I probably worded that wrong, but Adhunter does come with rules setup out of the box which is what I was alluding to.

As I said, the fact that other blockers can disable them means that in theory so should Adhunter. I'd imagine the means in which blocking is performed is similar in all blockers, just the syntax might be different in how it reads the lines.

The devs did modify the rules in the past to address the same issue, but should they be required to each time YT sneezes?

They provide it as part of Maxthon with a standard block list/rules, so it is somewhat expected they would be the ones to keep it up to date. But no, they shouldn't have to update it everytime YT sneezes.

With that said, is there an official "how to use AdHunter" stating rules/syntax for it's use? The only one that i've seen is the thread made by imanerd.

Official, no I don't think so but abc@home had a thread in the old forum where he went into great detail. Sorry, I can't find it.

Would be nice if there was one made up. The one by imanerd is great but one provided by someone who knows all the ins & outs would be better.
