Only block video ads

I don't care about text ads, and a lot of pages complain and won't let me see articles when AdBlock is blocking text ads. The only thing I want to block is the two 45sec long video ads in front of the 15.sec long clip I want to watch. I believe those video ads, three times longer than the clip, are not fair and I want to send a message by blocking them. How do I only block video ads?

    Hi Nik,

    Can you please:

    1. Click the AdBlock button and select Options, then click SUPPORT. Next to "Have our team requested some debug info?" click here and paste the text from the box into this discussion.
    2. Attach a screenshot with the ad(s) clearly marked?
    3. Provide a link to a page where you're seeing the video ads?
