Adblocker disabled..."an adblocker has been detected"

  • Defeated by the adblocking in Opera, both Windows and Linux versions. The browser works fine until I want to watch a video from a site that forces the disabling of the native adblocker.

    Despite doing so, per site or for every site, refreshing the video page will continue the nag about an adblocker being present. There are no other extensions installed, javascript is enabled, no anti-tracking enabled...still stuck. This happens for every site that demands an adblocker be disabled.

    Please help? What are these sites (e.g. Channel 4 in the UK) finding in Opera that prevents them from showing me a video? I really, really don't want to install Chrome again...

  • I realize this isn't what you want to hear but you will need to disable the ad-blocker to get the video to work on sites such as Channel 4, ITV, etc.

    I think it may have something to do with the adverts they play inside the video player.

    I've had to whitelist both C4 and ITV to get them to work.
