>youtube now breaks if you have adblock enabled
I can't believe this shit
He's probably using chrome and/or the official youtube app. This has happened a few times that I can remember and every time it only affects retards that are using the chrome app.
For the desktop version of chrome I think it autoinstalls some bullshit 'app' that does nothing except ruin the site if you use adblockers. Idk the details for sure though, I'm not retarded enough to use chrome.
>not having youtube red
what's it like being poor? you probably don't own a macbook, either.
>Disable adblock on youtube
>use noscript to still block the ads
Nice try kikes.
>Paying for features I get for free
came with my google music subscription, i'm not complaining.
sucks not living in the greatest country in the world
>Used google music since it came out
>Youtube releases youtube red
>automatically subscribed to it for free because I already had a subscription to Google music
>Get adfree youtube videos on all my devices and can play youtube in the background on my phone
works for me :^)
Mine's all fucky in Firefox if I have adblock enabled, but it works in Chrome.
Chrome locks my computer up if I watch videos on youtube though, so.
Disable your Malware Domains under Filter preferences as a fix for now. Worked for me.
I can honestly see pirated YouTube videos if they ever find a definite way to force ads. People stopped watching TV and started pirated shows, so I know I can stop watching YouTube and download channel videos. But then something would of course have to replace YouTube.
I mean that's what we already do.
>Hey youtube DragonDildoTesterX here. Sorry I haven't uploaded lately I was in the hospital for tearing my intestines in the last video.

That's like half the videos on youtube if you're just trying to look up how to like replace a bike tire or some basic shit. There's always at least 30 seconds of bullshit about nothing at the beginning.
The video will be titled "How To Change The Batteries In Your Car Keys" and it'll start with a minute and a half of "Hey guys Gerald Sweatyhands here with another battery replacement video. Uhhhhhhh this one is uh for the... I believe this is the keys to a Ford Taurus... a uh... I think it's a 2009 or 2008. Uh your keys may not look just like this because you may not have uh the same car or uh the uh the same kind of car--" JUST SHOW ME HOW TO CRACK THE SHIT OPEN GOD DAMNIT!
Youtube monetization incentivizes longer videos so fucking whatever you can do to stall for time and take longer to get to the point is in your own best interest as a video producer.
how big of a pretentious fatfuck do you have to be to be using adblock. do you block the shit in your toilets with some kind of "shitblocking" device after you take shits you obnoxious fucktarts????
>have adblock plus
>everything continues to work like normal
Trying to stop adblock is like building the maginot line higher.
I think if you can't tolerate unobtrusive ads (usually just static pictures off to the side) you're sort of a jerk. It's free content, someone has to pay to make it, someone has to pay to host it, come on.
i block ads on 4chan yet i 4chan pass, a lot of the times as well a website that runs ads shouldnt actually make a profit (ie porn / torrent websites) and those that do are mainlly from you clicking on the ad, so you dont actually make them lose a profit
no, banner ads do however. Ads in front of a video are different, it depends on whether or not you skip those ads since theyre per view ads, not per click. Skipping sets the count to 0.
its better as well, especially since i dont care much for jshit
>hurrr my computer my rules i am teh king of my domane le reddit 4 teh win
if it hurts your feelings when sites use ads then don't visit them. it's a fucking MINOR inconvenience to click the close button on ads. if you're such a fatfuck lazy retard autist that it bothers you to move your mouse an inch and click it once then just give up. you are useless
i use it to stop pop up ads and redirect ads, stopping banner ads is just a side effect. they dont even make money by you not clicking them in most cases.
additionally since you dont believe my pc my rules are you ok with spyware and the like?
>So that content will be behind a paywall soon. I thought /g/ disliked paywalls.
Then I'll stop wasting my life on videos that frankly don't deserve my time. Or if they're that important, they'll be leaked.
or he could just choose to not view ads lol
if he was complaining about something he couldn't prevent that'd be a valid argument, but he can prevent it
by using adblock. If you're so offended about it, stop coming to websites full of freetards
>considering it's free content
There's nothing to consider. I don't want to watch an ad I won't watch an ad. Makes my life faster and better. Am I suppose to feel sorry for the YouTube millionaire who got lucky and made a name for himself, because I'm not giving him 5 cents. I donate a lot to people and places I like on the internet, I even gave Wikipedia the $5 they begged for.
I will give money to the lesser if it suits my taste, but don't force your barbaric forms of manipulation unto me.
OP IS A RETARDED, SUB-LITERATE, NIGGER. KILL YOURSELF NOW.
do you realize how spoiled you adblockfags sound? if advertisements are enough of a problem to you personally that you need to go out of your way and download a program that removes them then you need to reassess your lives
Now that's hilarious.
What we need now is unomittable (is this even the word?) ads that serve malicious code and broken youtube.
Guess paying for bullshit vids is going to really bring in fruit to the Google Ad whatever company shits. Just like /g/ predicted.
Speaking of which, does anyone else noticed that, when playing videos the blocked element counter on uBlock (alas I have the Origin one) keeps going up all the time? After one lengthy video it can get up to 100-ish. Is this normal or something on me end?
It's not YouTube's fault, it's Adblock's. I was getting the problem in Chrome but not in Firefox, updated my filters in Firefox and it broke. One of the default filter lists must have fucked up and just blacklisted something important. Just watch ads for a few days and I'm sure they'll fix it.
>implying if you had a life to even speak of that you'd concern yourself with inane bullshit such as ads
>implying you're not spending your whole time everyday looking at stupid shit like porn all fucking day long which is why you felt the need to download adblockers
Thought about this too, but decided to consult /g/ first.
Good to know them kikes. Looks like i'll be keeping the numbers on, just for the heck of it.
Thanks for responding, all you guys. Have a nice, ad free, day.
> It's not YouTube's fault, it's Adblock's.
> Just watch ads
Man, fuck you. Everything works for me right now, using uBlock Origin on a browser. That's right, a browser, not a Chromium clone.
>ads are free content that you get to watch for free
oh boy, thanks Mr Merchant
Install the open with plugin, install mpv and youtube-dl(in winblows you also need to put the youtube-dl.exe into the mpv folder), configure open with to show mpv in menus and you are done.
>implying if you had a life to even speak of that you'd concern yourself with inane bullshit such as ads
Unlike your worthless ass, I prefer to enjoy my browsing experience like I enjoy my life, without inane bullshit in it.
Run Firefox, install Open with MPV https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/watch-with-mpv/?src=ss
Then open this addon's options and specify paths to your youtube-dl and mpv. After you've installed them, of course. (both are "portable", don't require installation)
I made it my personal mission to never ever buy any product that I see an advertisement for.
Yes, even if I consumed the product before, if I see an ad for it, I'll switch brands.
Fuck off, kike.
If you circumvent youtube's ads without paying for youtube red, they'll eventually start doing that thing where they were going to pay content creators a fixed salary to make videos for youtube red viewers only.
Either way, they'll get their money.
no. you fuck off, buttmunch. if you can't deal with seeing any ads from any companies then you'd better pack right up and fuck the hell off to innawoods or amishville because there isnt a single company that doesn't serve ads
>still using a browser instead of a media player to watch youtube videos
>can make webms on the fly
>can take screenshots with a button
>can use better upscaling
>can custom render captions
>it's gonna download the whole video before playback starts, doesn't it?
no it doesn't, it streams it immediately
literally 100's of video rippers curently all it would take is some faggots in russia to get youtube red and start packing torrents google couldn't do shit to someone in russia or china
This is the most useful to be honest, just enable stay on top and continue browsing 4chan
wenn du hier in einem altbau lebst sind die eingebauten Leitungen nicht mal zu schnellerem fähig, zum verzweifeln
UK fag here.
Had music key beta since it begun.
I even subscribe play music, but these jews decided to roll out red Soon™ here.
As well as pay.
Nigga You don't understand. You can tell youtube-dl fetch video quality, playlists, in what order you like. Youtube-dl steams the content to mpv, which then allows you to enjoy all of the benefits in MPVs without youtube's proprietary video player.
With Open With, it's take youtube-dl+mpv to whole new level where you can right-click command both of those programs. What you get is a modular and universal media player.
usually if there's a video I want to watch in 720p but it's only available in 60fps and I'm on my shitty 7 year old laptop that can't handle it, I enable the flash player instead of the html5 player, because the flash player never had a 60fps option in the first place.
No it fucking doesn't. You probably have the YouTube app/extension installed and/or are using a deprecated blocker like AdBlock or Adblock Plus.
Switch to uBlock Origin and (preferably) switch browser to something Firefox-based as well.
Update the filters, had the same issue today.
If you we're actually smart you checked the console and saw that the client was blocking the static assets, and that opening them gives a Ublock screen.
It might be that YouTube changed their static asset location to the same where adds come from.
I'm new to the mpv media player. I'm running it on my second screen watching Youtube atm, I noticed it will stutter and drop a few audio frames when I'm doing stuff (browsing websites in Firefox, my computer is old). Is there a setting that will prevent/improve this? I don't have this issue with other media players
Buffering is fine (on Youtube itself at least), but it's a noticable "performance drop" when it's happening if you can call it that. Yes it's a laptop with Core 2 Duo and integrated GPU
So is this the end of good things? We'll no longer be able to browse websites with adblock on? It even breaks the formatting of links posted on 4chan.
>using Firefox/Adblock since before it hit v1
>only time I've seen the wild, ad-infested web was when having to fix the computers of tech illiterates
>disabled Adblock to see how my most visited websites look
Integrated GPU is probably the issue then. My dedicated has 3 monitors on it and playback in my player gets bad with high bitrate playback if I'm playing a game on another monitor at the same time.
>it actually works
So Google actually wants people to fall for malware sites/ads?
One person may see the ads to cut them out, but thousand other people don't see them then ;^)
Besides that, the videos are gonna be hosted somewhere else, where youtube doesn't have control over the views, which also means the people from the ads don't get payed
>don't mind me, just taking this content without paying
>turn on fraps
>adjust microphone so that your every breath sounds like Darth Vader with a sinus infection
>babble mindless stream of consciousness bullshit for 30 minutes while you play Skyrim with anatomically exaggerated female body mods
>*just sold my effort bro*
Can we have this as a new meme?
>Well most people are paid for their effort, i.e jobs.
That's not how jobs work. You're paid to get something done, no one cares how much or how little effort you put in. You're not getting shit if the result of your effort isn't worth paying for.
Use actual tracking blockers instead of hand-made blacklists. Pic related doesn't break any site and doesn't allow tracking.
you are free to modify every single bit of information that executes on your cpu
online services are also free to try and prevent you from using them if you do so
I don't see a problem here, if you can turn off ads on youtube it's their fault, but I'd imagine they would actively prevent you from using it they'd loose money in the long run
Can confirm, been happening to me, more so on long videos, video just stops playing with black screen, if you pause adblock and unpause it again it fixes it for that video, sometimes u need to do it 2 or 3 times. I thought it was chrome or youtube was broken, nope they are just dicking over people who dont want to watch shitty ads.
None of you people in favor of punishing adblocking users would have said a fucking thing if this were 10 years ago.
You were NEVER supposed to be paid for making youtube videos. The entire point of youtube was to provide FREE (free as in free) space to upload content for people to watch.
Any of you newfags (I'm guessing you're oldfags in life though) don't understand. That's because you've gone through your entire life with corporate America SHOVING ads down your throat every 10 minutes (i.e. watching TV). The rest of us haven't yet had out minds turned to mush and are tired of these cunts trying to edge in on FREE CONTENT. If you don't like that, then STOP UPLOADING FREE CONTENT.
There absolutely be no expectation of profit for making videos and posting them on youtube. It is something that has been ruining youtube for a long time. I'd rather videos only be uploadable in 480p max than have to worry about ads.
I seriously enjoy his videos more than the eevblog these days.
I'm all for acceptable ads - text boxes on sides of the page.
>NOT bullshit commercials that run for 30 secs and can't be skipped
>NOT animated banners, this can be just as bad as porn sites
>NOT ads that blend themselves into search results and confuse users
we as consumers have the power to force the industry to change if bullshit intrusive advertising becomes unviable
Fuck the trending tab. I hate that shit so much I adblock it.
If google was a small company I would care, but I don't care about a conglomerate tumor that makes so much fucking money it could basically be a world government. They're not getting a single cent from me.
