FILMON "App for android" affected

Postby jimimaseye » Fri Jul 03, 2015 12:35 pm

I use Filmon.com both the website and the actual filmon.com App for Android.

On our family mobile phones (all Android, various versions) whenever I use the FILMON APP the adbolock/easylist prevents it from working correctly: that is, it will load and play the FIRST channel you select ok, however, if I 'back' to change channel to watch a second channel, it then freezes on 'channel load' and the channel will never start playing. However, if adblock is DISABLED, and the same test is performed, then the Filmon app works at it should (freedom to choose and change channels).

Note: Adblock/easylist is NOT a problem when I use Adblock on the WEBSITE version of Filmon.com from the same Android device (nor from the the website version, on a standard Desktop PC browser running normal Adblock+Easylist). It is only interfering with the Filmon APP.

As it is with Adblock for Android (and not via a webpage) I am unable to access and see what rules are affecting the app from completing its page load and preventing the subsequent channels from playing.

I admit I am at a lost of laying culpability to whether it is a problem with EASYLIST or ADBLOCK (in that without a subscription, - I have also logged the problem directly with Easylist in case they find the cause (but they have directed me here).

Could you help or guide me please.

*bump*

How does one get attention of the authors if you have a problem? Is this the wrong place/forum? If so how does one report an error with guaranteed review ?

Thank you.

I think it might be related to this report in issues: https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/253 (of which I also have the same experience too including with Playstore).

Note: 15 months logged, admitted to be a problem by "rjeschke" and made priority 2 with the words
This is an issue with our integrated 3rd party proxy code, we're going to address this issue as soon as possible.

And that was NINE MONTHS ago (6 months after logging) and nothing done on the bug since.

So I'll just accept that the bug exists and not to expect change. (After all, it is a FREE product so I cant complain or insist).
