jesper.nu - Videos doesn't work when adblock is enabled

Postby Noggie » Wed Apr 13, 2011 10:15 pm

Example video link: http://jesper.nu/video/9427

Video player refuses to show at all. :(

How it looks with adblock enabled:

How it looks when adblock is disabled for this page:

Is there any way to fix this ?
Getting the video without the time consuming ads ?
(15 seconds video ad per video adds up :evil: )

I have fixed the problem in EasyList (update your subscriptions): https://hg.adblockplus.org/easylist/rev/88643fc7dd4e

If you don't use it, you can try adding
Code: Select all
@@||jesper.nu/javascript/libs/videoads.js

manually.

Works out of the box in Chrome and Firefox using the Fanboy subscription, we don't block any filters like "videoads" (imo too dangerous)

I'm curious, In what way is it dangerous ?
It works fine with youtube.

The main reason was some video sites, requiring /videoads to launch first (which then allows the video to play). Thats why I think it was dangerous to block such a generic filter.. In the fanboy subscription, we'll be more site site specific for a filter like this, rather than constantly whitelisting it.

Just to clear things up here, fanboy is not talking about blocking in-video ads being dangerous, he is only talking about the strategical advantages and disadvantages of using certain rules. So for example, if you go to jesper.nu, it doesn't matter what rules are used to decide what get's blocked and what does not as long as the result is the same. But a filter list maintainer has to find a balance between using too agressive rules that might block more ads but also cause more problems and too specific rules that might not cause any problems but also don't block as much ads.
