Ads not being blocked on Twitch

Postby toxicman007 » Thu Mar 02, 2017 7:47 pm

I have never had problems with adblock plus before but just a few days ago ads on Twitch.tv were no longer being blocked. All ads show, not just on certain streams. I do not have Twitch whitelisted and never have.

it seems some streams have the ads included in the stream itself, so ... there is nothing to do in this case.

Some findings about the new ad system twitch is using.

Scenario:
Code: Select all
https://www.twitch.tv/imaqtpie

Is a streamer using the latest ad injection used by twitch. (
Code: Select all
https://blog.twitch.tv/introducing-surestream-for-a-better-video-ad-experience-on-twitch-3ca5ce3287c#.j739qruqm
)

Scenario 1:
- Safari 10.0.3
- Adblock plus 1.12.4
- Filter list used EasyList
- No custom filters
- Using HTML 5 Player

Not seeing any ads. Looking in the console. Safari is blocking:
"XMLHttpRequest cannot load
Code: Select all
https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/empty-ads/empty_vast.xml
. Origin
Code: Select all
https://imasdk.googleapis.com is not allowed by Access-Control-Allow-Origin
."

Scenario2:
- Chrome 56.0.2924.87 (64-bit)
- Adblock plus 1.12.4
- Filter list used Easylist
- No custom filters

Not seeing ads at the start of the stream. But do see ads activated by the streamer.

Scenario2 not seeing anymore ads after adding these 4 custom filters.

Code: Select all
||spade.twitch.tv
||client-event-reporter.twitch.tv
||pubster.twitch.tv/publish
||api.mixpanel.com


Perhaps you can use these also ?

Update:

Now ads are also played through safari.
These filters don't work anymore mentioned above.

Back to the drawing table....
