how to skip twitch ads
How to block Ads on Twitch - Twitch Adblock
so I recently heard about this extension called twitch Adblock, and you can search up on Google like I did. it'll be one of the first options here. I've been using it for about a week now and it works perfectly. um, basically, you'll just have a button here that says add to Chrome and you can install it on any chromium based browser. so if you're running a Microsoft Edge like me, it'll work here as well. after you install it, go to Twitch and see if it works and, if it doesn't, just restart your browser. so, basically, just exit out and then start up a new browser again, because sometimes you need to do that, sometimes you need to restart it for it to actually start working. um, and then I'll just show you, I guess, how it looks like right now. um, basically, I'm going through a couple of streams and right here there's supposed to be a pre-roll ad, but you'll see this little text here that says blocking ads and it'll show that until the pre-roll ends and all the controls will work like normal here, so you can use the video player like normal and, yeah, it'll work just fine. so just check a couple more here. okay, drill also says blocking ads, General sniper blocking ads and if, for example, someone's running mid-roll ads, so in the middle of the stream they click the start adds button, it'll also block those. um, if you want to check the settings, you should have little icon here on the extensions and you can click it to open up settings. but if you have a lot of extensions, like me, then it'll be under this extensions button. so you click on Twitch outblock here and you'll just have the option basically to turn it on or off or to show or not show this little text here. and yeah, it's basically it. one last thing here that I want to add, though, about this whole ad blocker versus twitch thing is that from my understanding, it's a bit of a back and forth or like a game of cat and mouse, where from one day to another, twitch can decide to change a bit of their code, and this will make it so the ad blocker no longer works, and then, basically, the developers behind ad blockers have to notike this, and then they have to change the extension code so that it matches whatever little change twitch made on their end. so basically, what I'm trying to say is that if you install the extension and it doesn't work, and you restart your browser and it still doesn't work. maybe give it a couple days, because there's a good chance that twitch recently changed a bit of their code and then it just takes the developers behind the ad blocker. it takes them a bit of time to change their code to match whatever change was made here. so yeah, I hope this helps you. thank you, guys for watching.
[ ✔ CHECK DESC ✔ ] Twitch AdBlock - How to block Twitch Ads [UPDATED!] (Works on All Browsers)
hey guys, it's social here and i'm back with a video today. so today i'm gonna be showing you how you can block the twitch ads, and this is the second video to my older video. this is gonna be the newer version that you can use to block the ads. i believe the older version isn't really working as well anymore. people are having sort of black screen issues and sort of that. i've been having that as well, but i found two new methods that you can use which will be able to block the ads for you. so first of all, i'm going to show you the best method that you can use to block the ads without any issues, uh, in terms of delays or anything like that. so the first thing is the purple ads blocker. so if you just go ahead, it's got poor reviews, but it does actually work. if you just go ahead and add it to chrome- i believe there might be a firefox version, i'm not sure, but just add it to your browser. and if you go up here and then go over to purple ads blocker, click on settings. you can see the options here, but actually you don't want to change any of these settings, so just keep them all the same. just leave it by default. you go over to a twitch stream. load any twitch stream. now the ads will be gone. uh, it's been working for the past couple weeks now haven't seen any ads will be installed. and be sure, if you do do this method, if you've done the things on my older video, you want to remove those settings from there as well. so forgot the options here. go to my filters, make sure you get rid of whatever's here and then, if you go to advanced settings, make sure, and you might be able to not be able to see this. so if you look here, if you go over to advanced settings and then just make sure that this is removed, make sure it looks like this, or what you can alternatively do is just click on reset to default settings and then it will go ahead and remove all of those settings for you. so, once it's installed, as i said, go to auto stream. ads will be gone. now, if this method does not work, we want to do is go ahead and remove purple ads blocker. so go over to here. go to purple ads blocker, remove from chrome and then go ahead and download the alternate ultimate player for twitch so you can go ahead and add this to chrome. i'm going to go ahead and add it and i'm going to quickly remove the purple ads blocker here to show you this. and then, if i just go over to any twitch stream here, so i'm just going to open up jake and bake live, open this up. it's going to go ahead and open up in so to get the chat. if we just uh should be able to get the chat here, hold on, oh, here we go. so just click that over there and you'll get the chat back. you won't be able to view any of the videos on the channel, anything. you have to disable the extension. but if you use this method, it will go ahead and you won't see any ads at all. um, also, if you uh, there may be a delay, i believe there might be a delay that gets added on. if you use this, you might not be able to use the um, the reduced delay option, uh, so if you use this method, there may be a delay in sort of the chat in the stream, uh, but that is the second method. so if the first method doesn't work, use this method. it will block the ads completely and, yeah, i hope you guys will enjoy your twitch experience with no ads, so i'll see you guys in the next video. you got any questions or feedback? leave it in the description outside in the comments, and i will see you guys in the next video. peace out, guys. [Music] you.
The Newest Way to Block Twitch Ads
all right, guys, i'm back with the brand new way to block twitch ads, because twitch keeps cracking down and i hate it, so time to get right into this. all right. so basically i'm gonna show you new- uh uh- user script way through tamper monkey, and then i'm also gonna show you a new web extension that i found okay. so, basically, you just go to greasy fork and then type twitch ad and then you download twitch ad fix install and then you go to tamper monkey dashboard. you'll see that twitch had fixes installed. these are the old ones that i had you guys use. as you can see, this one's updated three days ago. i just tried it up for the video and it doesn't even work. so i tried the other one too. still doesn't work. the thing that happens- you, if you guys still use the scripts, you would know it- just, the player keeps constantly refreshing and it's really annoying and i hate which, um, i mean i love twitch, but you know i hate the ads, uh, which is why i'm here and why you guys are here. so, basically, so we have this: um, all you have to do is refresh twitch. you don't even have to close your web browser to get it to work. and then, uh, this is tamper monkey that's doing this. the script, the twitch ad fix: no ads, no pre-rolls. go to pokes streams- no ads, no pre-rolls. rush stream: no ads, no pre-rolls. it's beautiful, everyone rejoices, and then we've got four hex breaks. but yeah, and now we'll just uh, close this and then, just to show you the, i'll even uninstall it, sure, why not? so now you see, it's twitch ad effects was gone. now we're going to show you the other way. so i'm pretty sure why the other script stopped working is because they made this web extension instead that they update now, because more people know about web extensions than they know about user scripts. so, um, like, if you see here, that's this is got the same icon and everything is this version. so i think they started just updating the web extension instead, which is understandable. more people know about it, okay, so now we're just going to show you the web extension. i didn't even refresh the page, it's just working. i'll see our first page anyways, just so you know. the script isn't still running, okay, as you can see, the user script is a little better, just because it's baked into um, you know the browser. so it's not, it's, it's more seamless, but, um, the web extensions still work. um, same streams here. i'll even open a few new ones. open sneaky stream, cirquez stream. okay, it's a little faster now. it might just be my internet right now it's a little slow. i don't think he's happy. want to stream? works? this is really [ __ ]. good, all right. um, yeah, so that's everything. i'm gonna leave the links in the description below. and also, guys, i started streaming on twitch again recently. uh, i'm playing variety games. um, i spent streaming vhs, a video horse society. it's kind of dead by daylight. i sometimes play dead by daylight, sometimes play league. i'll probably stream other games too every now and then maybe some solo games. alien isolation- i've never played it, so if you guys are interested in that too, it helped me out a lot. if you just, i'll be in the description too, if anyone cares. probably not, you're probably here for this, but anyways, thank you. see you guys next time, take care. see [Music] you.
DISABLE Twitch Pre-Roll Ads For Your Viewers!
let's tok about ads for a second. so everybody hates ads. they're really annoying and they interrupt your stream. nobody wants to be playing a game of? uh, what's a game people play nowadays? um, eldon ringer, zeldin ring- a game. do they have bosses, whatever? okay, you're playing elden ring. i assume that game has bosses in it. i've never played before and you're like in like the heat of the battle and then you get ads and nobody wants that. so we're going to tok a little bit about ads today. uh, we'll do a video for it on the main channel later. but one of the things about twitch is if you run a certain number of ads per hour or scratch that, sorry, if you run ads, it will disable pre-roll ads, um, for any new people that come in. so if you run 30 seconds of ads, it will disable pre-roll ads for 10 minutes. if you run 60 seconds, i think it will disable it for 20 minutes and then, if you run 90 seconds of ads, pre-roll ads will be disabled on your stream for 30 minutes. so any new people that come in for 30 minutes, they're not going to get any ads. so essentially, the idea is, if you want to disable pre-roll ads for your viewers, then the idea is that you would run more mid-roll ads in your stream. so one of the ways that people do this is they just run ads like every 30 minutes, just automatikally, and you can actually do that inside of your twitch dashboard. i should probably show you where that is right now. this is this is the way most normy people are gonna do it, but like: this is: this is the nutty vods channel. okay, you guys don't want to know about the normie stuff, but, um, let me show you the normie way that people do it. let's go into our- uh, here we go, go to your twitch dashboard and go into affiliate partner: uh, there should be something called the ads manager here. right, go to ads manager and this is essentially where you can schedule, like, when you want to have ads. so if you basically want to never have any pre-roll ads, then run 90 seconds of ads every 30 minutes here. but i actually turn this off because i have a better solution. so how, what if we could set up obs in such a way that every time you switch to your brb screen, it automatikally runs ads, so that way, your viewers never actually miss out on any of your content? all you have to do is when you switch to your brb screen it's, you know you can run ads and they're not really missing anything because you're not really there anyway. so you can actually do that with streamer bot. i'm going to show you how to do that right now. okay, i should probably should turn off reviews, turn off channel points, [Music]. so here's what you want to do, okay, first, you're gonna go into your actions tab here, right, and the first thing you're gonna you're gonna do is you're going to create a new action, which i've done already. so inside here, this run ads, just create a new action. and then you're going to add right click add, go down to twitch and then click run commercial. and then you can set this to run for how long you want. i set mine to 90 seconds, so i run a 90 second commercial. so every time i switch to my brb screen, it's automatikally going to run a 90 second commercial. and then additionally- uh, just to see that it works- i also send a twitch message that says: running at 90 seconds of ads. okay, i just get my bots to actually type that in chat. so i go right, click twitch, send message to channel. so it's gonna write running 90 seconds of ads. so here's the magic. okay, if you go over. um, actually, we actually created another action here that says add break, and i'll show you what this does in a second. so if we go over to the broadcaster tab, it actually might be called something different. i think they're going to change the name of this tab in a future stream robot update. but, uh, the tab that has like all your obs connections, clicking your like obs connection, the thing that you set. you must know what this is. okay, if you've set up streamer bot, you know what this tab is. it's where you add your obs thing. you're connected to obs. if you click on your obs connection and then look at the bottom tab here- bottom table- you can right click and add an event. okay, and i added an event. so these are different things that happened in obs. so in this case we set it to switch scenes. so every time i switch scenes it's going to run our ad break action. okay, so this is ad break. so what does ad break do? so go over to actions and here's my ad break. that's all i've done is i added this here, this logic. so how did i add this? i went right click, add logic, if, click on if and then in the top here: well, i'm just gonna add what i have here. just copy this out exactly: obs, events dot scene, dash name. okay, type that in, put that as your variable equals, and then here in the value put in the name of your brb screen. so the scene that you switched to that you want your ads to run on, run that and then your due action here will be that initial action that we wrote before. that runs the 90 seconds of ads. so here it is: run ads, and then press ok and then you're pretty much done. so if i was to switch scenes to my brb screen, it's automatikally going to run 90 seconds of ads. um, so i would demonstrate that right now, uh, and it would work, but you guys that are watching the youtube video, you're not going to see any of that. so something that i actually made- and this is a patreon exclusive at the moment- i might release this in the future to everyone else, but i actually made my own ad overlay, which i'll show you in a second. um, let's just edit this. so, rather than running that run ads thing, if you are subbed on patreon, i release an ads overlay. so where, where did i put that? here is add overlay. so look what happens. okay, so i'm going to switch to my brb screen and then look at, look at the bottom right of the screen. there we go. it said it plays ads and then there's a yellow bar here. i made it run super fast, just for the example. but like, that yellow bar is, uh, basically showing how long the ads are running for. so it's kind of like a loading bar kind of thing. uh, if i'm running like 90 seconds of ads, then it'll be like a 90 second, uh, countdown bar kind of thing, which basically tells my viewers that don't have ads, that like everybody else is currently seeing ads, kind of thing, which is really cool. um, but yeah, that's, that's gonna happen every time i switch to my brb screen. so if i go back to, uh, my desktop scene here and then, uh, let me change the settings for that add overlay, by the way, we'll make it, we'll make it like a real, a real ad overlay. so i'm gonna switch back to my brb screen. there's a countdown timer. so in 10 seconds, there's gonna, it's gonna- run ads: five, four, three, two, one runs the ads, 90 seconds of ads and then we have a timer bar here that counts down. so that's a little fancy thing that i added. uh, that's available on patreon. uh, if you don't want to sub to the patreon, don't worry, you can just do the first thing i showed you and it'll just like automatikally run the ads without the overlay. but it's the point is like, with this method, it's automatikally gonna run ads for you guys every time you switch this scene. i'm pretty sure that people are watching my twitch stream right now. uh are in ads right now, so they probably can't hear what i'm saying. but yeah, that's, uh, that's the whole ads thing. so there you go. uh, thanks, uh for watching that. i was way longer than it should have been, but uh, yeah, thanks, go, go stop to the patreon if you want that added overlay, ads, overlay thing. but uh, yeah, thanks for watching. bye.
Block Twitch Ads On PC and Mobile (2022 UPDATED)
[Music]. in previous videos we looked at various ad blockers for twitch on desktop: purple ads blocker, ttv lol and video ad block for twitch. well, that last one has gone rogue, taking the github repo down and redirecting users amazons to affiliate links. video ad blocker for twitch has since been taken down and if you still have it installed, remove it immediately. so i thought i'd do an update to my original ad blockers for twitch video. in this video i'll show you how to block twitch ads on desktop and mobile. purple ads blocker is still a favorite of mine and one of the most popular twitch ad blockers for pc. it blocks banner ads and ad roles and you can disable it on specific channels. it has two methods of blocking, but i find that the only user tunnel option works the best. purple ads blocker is available for chrome and firefox, my go to alternative when my other ad blockers aren't working. ttv lol is simple: it just blocks twitch ads. doesn't block banner ads, though, so you will still need ublock or something else to block that. i use brave, which has built-in ad blocks, where i never see banner ads. ttv lol has no user option. it's available for chrome and firefox. ttv ad eraser is yet another twitch ad blocker. this one has a couple of more options. with this one you have various ui options for the player and what happens when ads run. ttp ad eraser is available for chrome. it also works in firefox but requires setup. so it's better to just use it in chrome or use one of the other extensions available for firefox. the best way to block twitch ads is with you block origin in the help of ad blocking scripts. it's simple. all you do is select one of these scripts here. i'll pick notify script. you just want to copy the url and and you block origin. what you want to do is go to your settings, then go to advanced and you just want to check i'm an advanced user. then click on settings here, cog and down here under user resource location where it says unset. you just want to copy the url here and then hit apply and that's it. once you do that, refresh your twitch page or restart your browser, load up a channel and you won't see any twitch ads. it will also work on firefox mobile. again, just go and click one of the scripts, copy the url and then your add-on settings. just go to you block origin, go to options and, like before, scroll down to: i'm an advanced user. go to user resource location and change this string, paste that url and then hit apply changes. go on over back to twitch and select the screen. you will see no video ads. this is my new and preferred method of blocking twitch ads, because you don't have to rely on another extension which, as we've seen, can go wrong at any time. [Music] foreign you.
Twitch Broke The Adblock
so, anyway, uh, twitch finally found a workaround for ad blocker. now this is a continuously- this is going to be a cat and mouse game that will go on for the next 10 or 15 years or so- is that nobody wants to be able to watch ads, but everybody wants to watch content that's supported by ads. so we have an impasse here, and what happens is that the ad blockers get better and then, after the ad blockers get better, then the- the websites get better at detecting the ad blockers, and then, after the websites get better at detecting the ad blockers, the ad blockers find out how they were being detected and then they find another way around it instead, and so this is just what's been going on for the last 15 years. okay, like, this is always how it's going to be, and eventually I do think that the ads will win out. why do I think ads are going to beat out the ad blockers? well, simple, I think that ads are a multi-billion Dollar business and ad blockers aren't. that's why. so, yeah, I I think that there will always be a way to avoid ads- probably, at least I don't know. uh, they'll always probably be a way to avoid ads. however, it will become harder and harder to do for the average person and at a certain point, you will be spending more time avoiding ads than you would have been spending just watching the ad in the first place. so, yes, uh, as you guys see, twitch has finally found a workaround for the ad blocker. now I'm gonna be honest: the, with the amount of ads that twitch has nowadays, I actually watch Twitch a lot less. it's ridiculous. [Music]: uh, three minutes of ads. this is crazy. I don't understand it at all. uh, yeah, the ads [ __ ] suck. yeah, a lot of people are pretty negative about the ads. I don't think anybody likes them. I got nuked and downfall on the thread. I'll read some of the comments. what's twitch expecting will happen? I'd rather see this and ALT tab for 30 seconds than watch an ad. yeah, I think that what twitch should do is they should punish people that have ad blocker, so twitch can't simply deny them, like if there's a commercial break in progress, you have to make it take longer, like this is what twitch should do. if I was twitch, I would do this. I would make it to where, if you add block, this stream is cut for a minute and if you don't add Block. it's only cut for 30 seconds and that would cause more people to get rid of their ad block, because then they would be able to get more content, like that's what they should do. that's what I would do now. let's pay the bills. yes, of course. uh, no, I just leave. no, you won't. no, you won't. you'll sit there and you'll deal with it the same as everybody else has. so the truth is that the ad density on Twitch- how much do you guys think the ad density on Twitch has gone up by in the last uh year, like in the last two years, how much do you think it's gone up by 300 percent, fifty percent, two hundred percent? would you like if I provided you the user numbers on Twitch and the user numbers being consistent within the past two years? would that upset you? yes, okay, sure, let's do it. we have right here. this is um June 2020.. and so, uh, this is, let's see here, look at November. so let's go back to November again. so in November, this is last year- and um average 2.5 maximum: 2.9. average 2.5 maximum- 2.3 decline. yes, there's been a decline since last year whenever the pandemic was still happening. that's correct. there has been a a slight decline looks stagnant. yes, it is stagnant. um, if you go compared to YouTube growth. sure, I think that's a good way to look at it. YouTube revenue and usage statistiks. YouTube quarterly Revenue. okay, can we make an argument that quarterly revenue is, to a certain degree, indicative of usership because this is the best, this is the best I have? no, it has to be well, not strong enough. not according to Blizzard, I, I don't know, it's very hard to say they're directly correlated. I, I do think that they are directly. oh, here we go. YouTube quarterly users by millions. okay, so 2021 q1 and then 2022. so it has gone up in YouTube. it's gone up slightly, it's about the same. but, yes, YouTube has grown a little bit more, but they are kind of, you know, uh, falling off a little bit or not falling off, sorry, uh, leveling off YouTube is going to beat twitch. yeah, more revenue is stagnant. viewership just means they're milking the user base more well. it seems like they they've been, they've been growing in in users. absolutely, twitch is killing their growth with aggressive ads. I don't think that they're killing it as much as people are making it out to be, and the reason why I think that's the case is that people are still growing on Twitch and people are still making content on Twitch and the viewers are still stiking around. that's just that's what the numbers show. YouTube shorts is a reason. yeah, exactly, and I also don't think that you can see, you can show like twitch not growing and YouTube is growing, and then say that's directly because of the ads, because I feel like there's like 10 different other reasons for that. [Music], you're a pain. yeah, [Music] would help twitch if more women watched. yeah, exactly, I think the twitch is very much a male space. it's very much video game driven, which is like much more narrow uh than uh than YouTube, and so, yeah, of course, that's the case. so, yeah, that's what I would do again if I was twitch. twitch, you can pay me for this. uh. what you need to do if you want to get people to actually stop watching ads is you have to punish them for having ad blocker. you have to make the um like. one way to do it- this would be a good way to do it- is you create a really really long loading screen to load the stream after the commercial break is over, so you don't you make them think that it's their fault, but it's actually a loading screen that you created for them to feel like they're wasting their time with the ad blocker. so that's what you should. so, so that way, the user feels like it's a problem with the ad blocker, with the website, and it's not necessarily, uh, them being punished for using the ad blocker. yeah, I'll just leave. then, as I said, everybody says they're gonna leave, but if people haven't left after an ad density of four to six minutes, I don't think they're gonna leave. okay, people sat around and dealt with it on TV for years, and the truth is that there's no other live stream platform that's really as robust as Twitches. YouTube is getting there, but who's to say whenever YouTube gets there, they're not going to do the same exact thing. so it makes me, um, you know, not necessarily confident here. there, you can't, no, wait, no, you can watch the show on cable, exactly. and uh, what's this here? I ain't leaving, I'm just getting an ad blocker. yeah, let's see here. uh, problem is often bugs out and lasts longer than 30 minutes. it costs as many stutter free weight. they're already doing it. that's perfect. look at that holy [ __ ], mm-hmm, wow. then why is that? why cable TV is dying. yes, because there's an alternative that doesn't have as many ads. here's a really good way to say it: [Music]. so, okay, um, this is. this is something I I- you guys might not know this, but I I did go to college. I went to Business School, and in one of my classes- this is one of my upperclassmen classes- one of my professors said that a price War isn't good for anyone, and I was thinking to myself: well, what about the customers? and then I realized I was in Business School- nobody cares about them. so think about it like this: if you have a hamburger that's a dollar and you're the only place that has a hamburger that's a dollar, well then everybody's gonna go to where you're at. but if you increase the price of your hamburger and then everybody else's hamburgers are the same, then people are just going to decide whichever one they want to go to. staff- yeah, yeah. there it is, yeah, yeah, yeah. capitalists, only competition. well, nobody wants to price facts. price fixing and price matching is very common, and you guys are seeing this happen now with, like all of the dollar menu stuff turning into value menu stuff and the hamburgers you used to spend a dollar.
