    Default Youtube ads about to get worse

    30 second unskipple adverts are coming to you tube in a push for users to buy subscriptions.
    First two are well known and simple to use.

    Those with Android devices can use > https://revanced.net/

    Those using windows > https://ublockorigin.com/

    Lan blockers>
    Pie Hole can be used within your local lan using a Raspberry Pi> https://pi-hole.net/

    More difficult but an internal lan global adblocker for those with an Asus router is the "Diversion" plugin. Merlin CFW is also required.

    Default Re: Youtube ads about to get worse

    To be honest I can’t remember the last time I used YouTube apart from watching a trailer.
    I got so pissed off with ads every couple of minutes.

    it used to be a great platform. so sad.

    Sign up for premium using a vpn in India or Turkey, only costs around a couple of quid a month.

    Default Re: Youtube ads about to get worse

    I use Youtube a hell of a lot as I fell down the rabbit hole of watching the "auditor's" videos, DJ Audits and the likes....and never climbed out of it.
    I just subscribed to Youtube Premium on Ukraine, and its roughly £2.20 a month which I think is very reasonable. I tried Turkey and India but they weren't playing ball on NordVPN.

    Default Re: Youtube ads about to get worse

    I went on the premium trial because I watch a lot on YouTube. Some really good channels on there.

    Must look at switching to a different country because £12 is a bit too much I think. Although there also YouTube music in there and I figured I could justify it in a way by cancelling Deezer. Which of course I didn't cancel.
    No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...

    Just use the brave browser and use YouTube as normal, without ads. No setup, easy.

    The only thing we subscribe to is amazon prime.
    we don’t even watch prime tv

    everything is available via iptv or plex all my favourite shows in one place.
