Adblock time to time can’t handle this simple task to hide pre rolls on YouTube, so, you can use this simple trick.
Just update your hosts file using these lines:
127.0.0.1 ads.youtube.com 127.0.0.1 s0.2mdn.net 127.0.0.1 s1.2mdn.net 127.0.0.1 googleads.g.doubleclick.net 127.0.0.1 pubads.g.doubleclick.net 127.0.0.1 ad.doubleclick.net 127.0.0.1 static.doubleclick.net
Next level of craziness — host file with 15K+ lines, check this out.
For some reason I’m not being able to update my host file. I’m using Windows 8.1 any suggestions?
Can’t help with Windows, sorry. Check permissions 😉
It finally work after I was able to save the host file. I wasn’t able to save at first but re opened it in Notepad++ and worked great! Thank you!
For those who cant change thier hosts file on windows 8 (google where the hosts file is)
You need to copy the file to your desktop, edit it and copy it back (clicking yes to overwrite)
Mmmm! I have already seen this…
That’s the update! 😉
try using 0.0.0.0 instead of 127.0.0.1 to prevent delay
