Youtube partner video damage

Postby AlieP » Thu Aug 19, 2010 11:03 pm

Youtube partner videos sometimes won't load when the below filters are activated.

Default filter match - Block retrieval of URL: .2mdn.*.swf [http://s0.2mdn.net/instream/adsapi_2.swf]

This is a bit tricky, b/c the same videos will sometimes query/show other ads from other ad agencies such as doubleclick, which in turn admuncher allows to video to play normally. The video will only not load if the above ad query is specifically to http://s0.2mdn.net/.

Here is an example link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zfwLPpe ... tube_gdata

It seems you are more likely to reproduce the problem if you copy and paste the link into your address bar instead of clicking on the link for some reason.

For comparison sake, it seems adblock plus filter subscription just side step the problem by adding exceptions to http://s0.2mdn.net/, which allows the video to play, but also allows the ads to run.

Fixed for 3137.
That's not an ad blocker... THIS is an ad blocker.
