Bo, isn't it ||youtube.com/annotations_ ?
I think so:
I used the filter without the dash, but both filters work in ABP or UBO. Is easy to test, you can use this 3 links from YouTube. I save those links for testing purposes. The first 2 have the ad somewhere around the middle and the third link, at the beginning of the video.
For youtube, I also use the "Youtube: Other Annoyances" list, from hxxp://youtube.adblockplus.me
Hi rdsu, that filter is not good anymore. I used it for a few years but about 2 years ago, it stop blocking ads like the ones displayed in the videos I linked in the post below. When that happened, I stopped using it, and later I found the one I posted/posted by Krusty also, a filter that actually work..
But anyway, I just tested to see if the Other annoyances filter works again, maybe it got fixed but found that still doesn't block annotations in YT videos. Is faster for me testing with ABP, but the result is exactly the same as if I done it with UBO. Here is an example, you can see the ad to the left of the video and the Other annoyances filter as installed to the right. The filter doesnt block any of the ads in the 3 videos I posted, you should switch to this filter, "||youtube.com/annotations".
Added 3 custom lists:
RW_DOMBLDomain Blocklist + RW_URLBLURL Blocklist + RW_IPBLIP Blocklist
I discovered these some time ago, glad you have mentioned it also.
I had http entries which uBlock warned about, so have now changed them to https.
after a short review only one of those lists is usefull - the ip table, the rest (nearly all) could by caught with a general tld lock
the ^ is IMO for adblock, i dont think uBo need this.
at least those lists will grow. a nice a d decent filtering on 3rd-party content and in special denying 3rd-party scripts will lock out the most. thats why i dont care much about such (special) lists.
You are right.
I disable it and they are still being blocked by other filters... Thanks
Excuse my ignorance, but can you explain what is a 'tld lock'?
insert list in "my filters".
uBlockO v1.14.18 Released (November 8, 2017)

thank you mood!!
Compare filter lists:
Ublock filters - Resource abuse - 26/26
Nocoin Filter List - 7/28
@gorhill I see that you are adding filters from Adguard.
Adguard Base Filters
Adguard Mobile Filters
Adguard Spyware Filters
Adguard’s Annoyance List
Is it possible to also add the Social media filter from Adguard?
That filter is no part of Adguard’s Annoyance List and the only custom filter I still have to add.
So no real need for the nocoin filterlist anymore?
26 + 7 = 33
There is still need.
But the authors of the lists could...................
Oh god, what kind of answer is this? Hate to decipher between lines.
1° FilScore (63):
currently too much nonsense on the run about ublock and other blocking extensions because people do not investigate some reading.
rising: "Adblock for xyz-service" or "no-coin" extensions, or "anti-cookie".
people often install this crap because they dont know about the capabilities of uBlock and which list to activate/insert.
for reason i have activated the RUS ads list and - applause - it filters ads on a german site.
Thanks, I have added this to my filter, and haven't seen any video ads yet.
I sympathize with you - his posts are often a conundrum to me
How do I whitelist a certain filter from a list?
Separate names with a comma.
