Can't block adds on Videoweed

Watching TV series on

3 - 4 different ads pop up prior to loading each episode I selected. One ad per episode - 3 - 4 different companies advertising on Videoweed.

• I select the AdBlock button. Choose "Block an ad on this page.
• When the AdBlock popup tells me to click on the ad, Videoweed page goes gray. The ad disappears leaving only the player to select / block.
• When I punch "cancel" or x out of the AdBlock popup, my Mac takes me back to Videoweed page and re-runs the ad / starts again at the beginning and I have to listen to the ad anyway... a second time.

How do I get around this process?

How do I correctly "report" this ad using the AdBlock menu, because when I select "report this ad" only the player can be selected?


Am I doing something wrong?

    Hi! Can you follow these instructions to report it to the right place, rather than block it. Video ads are harder to block and needs advanced filters.

    Also note that Safari cannot block video ads, except for
