Youtube ads
I base my entire ad filtering with proxo/sidki filterset, but I could not get rid of some ads at youtube. Tried various additions to AdDomains/AdHosts but failed. Banging Head
Only adding to the system hosts file I could bypass the ads.

Is there a way to do the filtering only with proxo, without the hosts file trick?

example links:

I'm using sidki's latest beta + opera

On a side note, I've also removed $SET(1=adkey_j:0.) from the Exceptions list, fearing that it was part of my failing to filter out the ads. I didn't notice any broken feature yet (not that I'm actively seeking for one, and I've only tested with Opera).

I guess isn't caught by

Anyway I've added to AdHosts
  &&\8&($TST(volat=*.log:[12]*)$ADDLST(Log-Rare,ALST AdH \8\t\u)|)
Hits are logged but ads are still displayed.

Proxo Gurus, please help me out! Smile!

RE: Youtube ads
It could be coming from one of the flash files. Flash files are encrypted or compressed and so not altered by the Proxomitron.

On , I see

<param name=\"flashvars\" value=\"rv.7.length_seconds=43&




Code:*ad3 $RDIR(http://local.ptron/killed.gif) $RDIR(http://local.ptron/killed.gif)

to Exceptions-U appears to stop the request to and others, for me.

Can you confirm?

I think the "" entry isn't needed (I didn't get any hits there). The first one got rid of everything. I'm still without the $SET(1=adkey_j:0.) for I'll test drive for a while and report back. Thank you JJoe! Wink

I wonder if Sidki remembers why we should keep "$SET(1=adkey_j:0.)"?
