Hi, my parent watches these Asian drama tv shows on this website called
When I enable Adblock, the videos gets an ! and won't play. It's being treated as an ad. When i disable Adblock in the content blocker settings, and relaunch safari, the video plays normally.

    Hi Eddie,

    This could be a case of a site refusing to show content if you're running an ad blocker, or it could be an error in Safari. Let's treat this as the former and see if it helps.

    If you're on a site that's refusing to show content if AdBlock is installed, please follow the instructions in this Knowledge Base article about websites detecting AdBlock and let us know how it goes!

    A quick alternative is just to disable AdBlock on that site. Click the AdBlock button and select Don't run on pages on this domain, and then click Exclude.
