Blocking YouTube video ads

  • Hello,

    I hate the ad videos on youtube.
    Is there a way to block them?

    Opera 12.16

  • You can use an extension or an userjs.

  • Last time - when I "listened to the rain" - I didn't get any.
    Google sucks to an extent, and YouTube wouldn't get my language/location settings like it's broken (I'd tried to get rid at least of those frustrating "local village" pieces of BS: at first it showed some Portuguese footage, but then acted like it never happened).

  • Thank you for the comments.
    Couldn't find an extension for Opera 12 so I installed Oera 25 and a youtube ad blocker extension.
    The past days I've tried to like Opera 25 but it's not for me.
    The ad blocker extension worked great though,

    What can I do with the userjs?

  • What youtube ad blocker extension did you use with Opera 25 ?.

    Have you tried AdBlock (the normal one, not the plus +) with Opera 12 ?.

  • If you're using version 12 of Opera, just use the block content filter. There are plenty of lists you can copy and paste into your filter settings found all over the internet. It's far better than ad block, and since it's not an extension it's not a security nightmare.

  • Installed Adblock....opened 100 youtube videos......no ads :)
    My thanks for all the help
