    Default Youtube pre-roll and mid-roll ads

    I am curious as to what filter rules people use to block these annoying video ads.

    I have a few rules configured and it's stopped most but I'd rather stop everything from getting through.

    Any ideas thrown in are welcome. Thanks!

    I observed the logs from uBlock Origin on Chrome while I have Youtube open and playing on the same browser. I then made a note of all the URLs being blocked and applied them in Web Filter. For the most part, it works. Only thing is, every now and then, certain ads still manage to get through.

    The ads are annoying, particularly on smart TVs and Rokus where it relies totally on Untangle to block ads.

    How do I quickly or automatically get the entries from this FILE into a json format ready to be imported into Block Sites?

    Untangle should consider having a facility to import URL block lists from cleartext.

    I think oj88 wants to be able to import a cleartext block list into block sites on the webfilter.
