Hello, I'm sure you get harassed by youtubers asking to block adblock, But I feel that to get them to stop complaining an option to keep the video adverts, So an interface showing adds that Should be on the page and you can choose to disable them, then it stops being "BAN ADBLOCK THERE TO BLAME" it will become "Please enable adverts on YouTube so I can make money!!!" so its the users choice rather then yours.

    1. If you are saying that we are whitelisting YouTube - we're not. We're as annoyed as you are that the ads are getting through. Other ad-blockers may do, but we don't.
    2. We do have a workaround, although some people report that it still doesn't work.

    Note: This only works in Chrome. This will not work in Opera and other Chromium-based browsers

    1. Go to chrome://plugins
    2. Open "Details" using the link in the top-right
    3. Under "Adobe Flash Player", you should see 2 versions of flash showing.
    4. Find the version listed as "Type: PPAPI" (found just above the "Disable" link).
    5. Disable the PPAPI flash, and make sure that the other version of Flash is enabled.

    If this doesn't help, reply and reopen this discussion.
