Discussion on how to block ads on a certain site, why your filter doesn't work or how it can be optimized

Twitch.tv video ads

Postby SevasTra » Wed Mar 14, 2012 2:52 am

It seems ads on Twitch have popped back up for me. I don't use any of the pre-made lists I just manually block ads that bother me.

From my searching the address the ads come from is http://ad.doubleclick.net/pfadx/twitch/twitch/* with channel specific info at the end such as channel name, game being played, and game genre. But if I add that to the filter the pause button breaks, if I try to pause the video just keeps playing.

I have tried Fanboy's list to see if it would word, it blocks the ad but the pause button breaks with that too, which IIRC the filter on that is http://ad.doubleclick.net/pfadx/.

If it helps the full address of the ad for Siglemic's channel I was on is:
http://ad.doubleclick.net/pfadx/twitch/ ... ord=184820?

I've looked at another channel and the ad stemming from that one was the same prefix http://ad.doubleclick.net/pfadx/twitch/twitch/ with that channel's name and game information after.

For what its worth, I too recently had ads return, only with twitchtv's partnered broadcasters.

I was at that time subscribed to EasyList. Since adding Fanboy's, (don't know how I ever lost that) the ads have disappeared. Cannot confirm any problem with the pause button.

There's a report I sent in.

Using the Fanboy subscription does block the ad but it breaks the pause button.
From what I could gather, as I said in the OP, the ads come from http://ad.doubleclick.net/pfadx/twitch/twitch/
With the Open blockable items window up the fanboy subscription blocks http://ad.doubleclick.net/pfadx/ to block the ad.
Whether http://ad.doubleclick.net/pfadx/twitch/twitch/ or http://ad.doubleclick.net/pfadx/ is blocking the ad the pause button still won't work, even if I block the whole long channel specific address the ad comes from it breaks the pause button.
Also I have noticed the pause button works until the address for the ad shows up and is blocked so blocking the ad is what breaks the pause button.

If you need anything else I'll be happy to help, I'll try my best not to forget I have this tab open :P

That seems to have worked thanks! I'm seeing the doubleclick address being blocked. along with the ad, and the pause button works.

Thanks for your help!
