For example,

I go to http://6abc.com/shots-fired-at-police-in-gloucester-twp-standoff-schools-closed/2927128/ and an ad is displayed before the actual video begins.

  • Summary changed from Site specific problem to Pre-roll video ads on 6 ABC News are not blocked

comment:4 Changed 17 months ago by hfiguiere

The video from comment 1 doesn't seem to have an ad anymore. Albeit other videos on the site do.

Update: it is just that you don't get ads all the time.

You need the following blocking filter

||content.uplynk.com/preplay/*

AND

and url rewrite as issue #6592 mentions.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

With these two filters:

||content.uplynk.com/api/v3/preplay/*
/(content.uplynk.com\/ext\/.*\.m3u8)\?.*$/$rewrite=$1

and the 3.1.0.2053 development build, it should work.

Seems to work in Chrome but in Firefox 60.0.1 the player is black. Tested with the suggested filters and ABP 3.1.0.2053

With these two filters

One filter is enough if you rewrite the parameter "ad" to something else.
example &ad=$rewrite=&abp=
