Broken CBS video on HuffPost

There is a CBS Late Show with David Letterman video clip that loads, but then fails to play, giving me a message that the video is being blocked by an ad blocker and refused to show the rest of the video. I had to disable filtering to watch. Once I did, there was a short ad for HTC and then the video clip itself. Suggestions?

I'm on: Ad Muncher v4.92 Beta Build 32591/3570

Disable the 5th option down on the right hand side of the Filtering tab.

If I do that, won't I get a bunch of "Munched" messages? I think I'll just pass on CBS videos rather than look at that additional screen clutter. Thanks for your response.

For what it's worth: This is the first time I've had to post a bug/page break in a LONG time. Ad Muncher remains a must-have application.

it's not a bug. :)

and the messages ONLY apply to block retrieval filters.

you won't see [munched] all over pages, that's the other option.

Thanks, Jeff. I feel a bit silly.
