Issues with VEVO videos on Youtube?

Postby emptypage » Thu Oct 22, 2015 12:47 am

I'm using Chrome with the ABP plugin on Windows and also Adblock Browser on my Android mobile.

I'm experiencing a few issues with the Adblock Browser on mobile, when viewing some YouTube videos. The affected content appears to be VEVO related, for example the video "Mr Probz - Waves" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUjE9H8QlA4. This link will work fine from Windows & Chrome & ABP, yet won't work from Adblock Browser. From the mobile version, it appears to detect the ad-block and redirect you to a different 'embedded URL': https://www.youtube.com/embed/pUjE9H8QlA4?vndclient=mv-google&vndapp=youtube_mobile&vndel=watch&vnddnc=1.
Then when you attempt to start the video on this page, you get the message:
This video contains content from VEVO. It is restricted from playback on certain sites.
Watch on YouTube.

Even though you are currently on the YouTube site and that is exactly where you are trying to view the content from...
What is causing the redirect through to an 'embedded URL' (that you would use to embed a video on another website)?

If I try this again with a non-VEVO video it works fine, e.g. "Major Lazer & DJ Snake - Lean On" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqeW9_5kURI.

Heh guys, can anyone tell me why the Adblock Browser is opening the 'embedded' link, instead of the 'normal youtube' page? It's a great browser, but not being able to open some youtube content is kind of frustrating. :(

Hi and sorry for the delay! I was finally able to reproduce your issue after uninstalling the Youtube app. With the Youtube (YT) app, all videos open in the YT app after tapping the play icon on the Youtube site in Adblock Browser, of course with ads then.

I have filed an issue for your report now, so we can dig into the actual issue: https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/3313

I have encountered exactly the same issue on several videos now. Not a very big deal, I just watch those when I'm on the desktop. But I'm just wondering if there is any eta on when this will get fixed?

Hey Ananda,

Thanks for reporting that. We still have that issue open, but it will be helpful if you could let us know what is your device and Android version.
I will forward it to our testers. Cheers!
