How is this a P1? We were never able to block those AFAIK. P1 is for when the software doesn't work at all, real blockers. This one is more of a P3 IMO.

well, P1 was excessive

I can't test abp for android but as you can see in the thread it seems it's a recent event (not blocking such ads). A lot of users. Strange.

I tested ABP on Android some weeks ago with the YouTube app. I didn't get any ads then which might be coincidence though.

With the latest YouTube app I am getting ads (even with AdAway which worked fine before). I tried to figure out where the ads come from with Shark, added 2 generic filters but that didn't work.

Not sure what I could try now.

After further investigation it looks like the video ads are being served via HTTPS. Nothing we can do here at the moment unfortunately.

  • Ready set

As Arthur said, we can't block ads served over HTTPS yet, closing.
