No adblocker on Chrome can block video ads for now

Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about AdBlock and Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Adblock Plus Jun 2011

I mentioned in my previous post that Adblock for Chrome can block most Youtube video ads (though not in Youtube videos embedded on third-party sites). Unfortunately, this functionality does not extend to videos from websites that aren't Youtube. Adblock Plus for Firefox is still king when it comes to blocking video ads in general. If you're watching a video on (for example) Engadget, Adblock Plus on Firefox will block both the ads that play before the main video itself, and the small banner ads that pop up within the main video while it's playing. Neat.

Not that I'm endorsing Adblock Plus. In fact, the Chrome version of Adblock Plus has the same flaws with video-blocking as its similarly-named competitor, Adblock for Chrome. In this regard, neither of these two major Chrome adblockers do as good of a job as their Firefox counterpart. For now, no matter which adblocker you're using on Google Chrome, you're still going to have to watch video ads. Dang it. :P

Adblock for Chrome doesn't block Youtube video ads

Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about AdBlock and YouTube Jun 2011

Oh yeah, and Adblock for Chrome isn't too great at blocking Youtube video ads, either. I'm talking about the ads that pop up inside videos, not the banner ads throughout the website. Though Adblock will block ads in videos on the actual Youtube website, it doesn't block video ads in embedded Youtube videos, on third-party sites. It's not a major flaw, but in my opinion, in-video ads are one of the most annoying types (right after popups, interstitials, and banner ads with sound).

about AdBlock and Adblock Plus Jun 2011

Adblock for Chrome doesn't block ads as well as Adblock Plus for Firefox. Interstitial ads (ads that just randomly pop up and dominate the entire web page until you press the continue button) are not blocked most of the time, and sometimes you can still see ads for a brief moment before they're hidden. But Adblock for Chrome is getting better, and its current blocking ability is acceptable.
