You will need to install a user script manager extension to install this script.
This isn't meant to be an ad-blocker (quite the opposite), it is meant to make YouTube ads more bearable while continuing to support the video creators on YouTube.
This script will automatically press the skip button on YouTube videos ads and click the close button on popup ads.
The script has 3 menu options you can find in the tamper/grease monkey menus when you're on a youtube page.
The first menu option lets you choose how many seconds of delay you would like before the script closes the ad. The default for this option is 3 seconds.
The second menu option lets you enable/disable whether you want video ads to be muted while they play. This option is enabled by default.
The third menu option lets you enable/disable whether you want video ads to be hidden while they play. This option is disabled by default.
I like to support the people who make videos I like on YouTube so I white-list them on my ad-blocker, unfortunately ads are kind of annoying so I made this script to make them a bit more bearable.
Here are some things to keep in mind when using this script in regards to supporting YouTubers.
There are a few ways that YouTubers make money when it comes to ads. CPM (Cost per 1000 impressions), CPC (Cost per click) or CPV (Cost per view).
