Youtube ads not filtered

Postby Dalgorn » Sun Jul 26, 2015 4:15 pm

Hi,
I've installed ad block on my Galaxy S3 and on my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to be able to listen to the music on youtube without annoying ads. I don't have the root permissions but I've set up the proxy manually (localhost and port 2020). I've rebooted both the devices and now the app says "ads blocked on wifi connection" but... I already see some vevo ads among some songs.

Could you help me to understand why?

After further investigation it looks like the video ads are being served via HTTPS. Nothing we can do here at the moment unfortunately.

we can't block ads served over HTTPS yet

Could that be the reason why many ads are still seen, even outside of the Youtube app? That automatically makes ABP <50% useful..
