The main ABP filter-list is EasyList, and you can look inside it here: https://easylist.adblockplus.org/en/

use firefox + ABP, go to youtube, play a video, click ABP icon, open blockable items list ==> in red you'll see the filtered requests (and the triggered filters)

Thanks :) But among this huge list, which are the precise domains that Adblock Plus blocks? :p

Is it possible to do that in Chrome?

You are making some mistake.
Go to YT.
Right click the page, click inspect.
Go to adblock plus tab !
Refresh (press F5) ==> you'll get the filters.

Yeah I know how to do it, but when I ask it to show me only blocked elements, it shows nothing.

Do you see other requests ? or you get nothing ?
It works for me. You have to go to the new ABP tab before refreshing the page.

I do see not blocked resquests. Are the blocked requests on the bottom where it says failed to load?
