I like to think of myself as a responsible user of AdBlock. I use it to keep add-disturbance to a minimum while I make absolutely sure to disable AdBlock and watch adds on content/sites I find worthwhile and want to support.

Along that line of usage I have found myself looking for a way to disable AdBlock while watching videos on Youtube from channels that I subscribe to. Or better yet, just an option to input Youtube/Twitch/whatever channels in a list form and have AdBlock disable itself on those on question.

Given the way AdBlock works, I have no idea whether this is even possible? Currently I just have AdBlock disabled for Youtube altogether.

Hopefully somebody can shed some light on that last part.

Additional ideas along this line? Approval? Disapproval? Let's hear it :)

    I'm an idiot. Just found that the feature in question is already being added and is currently in Beta.

    [Options->Allow whitelisting of specific YouTube channels Beta]

    Hi Kasper,

    If you enabled Beta option, you can go on any channel you want to whitelist and click on AdBlock icon -> Whitelist this YouTube channel :)
