AdBlockPlus prevents Adobe Flash Video From Running

Postby mchain » Fri Jun 24, 2011 7:27 pm

Running XP Home SP3, Firefox 5.0.4183, AdBlockPlus 1.3.8.

Adobe Flash version: (NPAPI).

Cannot run Flash Video at this site:

As a matter of fact, no videos will run unless I disable AdBlockPlus on this site. Then, of course, I get ads within Flash video and elsewhere. Kind of defeats the purpose of running the program, doesn't it?

Ran 'Error Console' with AdBlockPlus enabled and cleared before operation, and no data appears at all. :!: Flash video starts fine, downloads entire clip, Flash circular icon rotates, but video never starts.

Had this problem with FF 4.0.1, most likely same AdblockPlus version. IE8 does not have AdBlockPlus, so Flash works on this site. Not sure, but prior to most recent AdBlockPlus update, FF Flash worked on the site.

Running filters EasyList (USA) and Fanboy's List (English). Last update was on 6/21/2011 3:23 PM (Success).

I do not seem to have this problem with other sites on the web, but not sure, as I do not really use other sites to view Flash video. (Safe best practices.)

Just so you know, I am not running NoScript.

Did some looking into it..and it's Easylist filter ||^$third-party
blocking that is causing it to not work correctly. I know this doesn't help you mchain I'm just helping the Filterlist maker a little bit so doesn't have to search as much.

Edit: mchain you could whitelist @@| until it's fixed but this could make ads appear here and other sites, I don't know for sure.

Edit2: Easylist forum post where I posted about this problem.
