Youtube - SSL issue - and blocking ads

Postby kingofbytes » Tue May 27, 2014 3:53 pm


I've been an Ad Muncher user for years. I'm aware that Ad Muncher cannot filter an encrypted SSL session.

However, since Google and Youtube have switched to default SSL, now all ads are going unfiltered. I am reaching out to ask:
1. What can be done about going back to a non-encrypted session?
2. How can we configure Ad Muncher to do it's job?
3. I've read there is a new version of Ad Muncher coming out - when?
Bonus question: When is Ad Muncher coming out for Android?

THank you much!

You'll need to logout of youtube and go to for it to be filtered for now.

We can't say when v5.x will be finished. It will have SSL filtering.
That's not an ad blocker... THIS is an ad blocker.
No bovines were harmed in the making of this program.
My first popup stopper blocked too much.
My second popup stopper didn't block enough.
Ad Muncher was juuuuust right.
