About the option of Block ads inside YouTube videos

about the option of Block ads inside YouTube videos

1. why is there the option? but ABP of FF has no the option.
2. Can it block ads inside youtube videos with filters, without the option?
3. Enabling the option makes main video autoplayed. but diabling it the video will be ready to play - not autoplayed.
I think main video shouldn't be autoplayed even with enabling the option.

1. Because blocking object subrequests is not possible in Chrome - so blocking YouTube ads in the same way as in Firefox will not work. Due to popular demand Tom Joseph created this hack. It will only work on youtube.com and rewrite Flash parameter in such a way that there are no ads. But it is really a hack, not a proper solution.
2. No
3. This seems to be a side-effect of the approach chosen. I'll see whether the same thing can be done better.

I reworked the YouTube ad blocking: https://hg.adblockplus.org/adblockplusc ... 27aeaba71d
The new code should be free of side-effects. A new development build will be available in 10 minutes.

If you want videos to stop autoplaying, enable click-to-play in about:flags and then go to wrench->Options->Under the Hood->Content settings...->Plugins->Click-to-play
Also to stop HTML5 video from autoplaying (in any browser that supports Userscripts), install this Userscript: http://diveintohtml5.org/examples/disab ... ay.user.js
