  • (2021-02-28) Yusuf Uzun: Kullanisli gayet iyi! Kesinlikle tavsiye ediyorum.
  • (2021-02-26) Mestre dos Tragos: Não está funcionando, eu clico para bloquear um canal, mas não vai.
  • (2021-02-24) D S: It used to be 4/5 (it just forgot some channels or not taking them into account, but now it's pretty much 1/5, giving it 3 stars for the idea. The videos keep loading and loading and loading under the first one shown. Same in main column and side column. Comments under videos can't be accessed anymore. Definitely this is the extension causing it, because all is good once I disable it. Any other I can get rid of spammy channels?
  • (2021-02-12) Kevin Russell: Thank goodness!. Someone though thought it would be fun to use an uncommon name for an alcoholic beverage in their crazy weird punk rock goth channel. Every search for the word produced that garbage. So glad this completely removes all of those videos from my searches!
  • (2021-02-12) Nice Pizza Guy: The Block button on search results is working again, thanks.
  • (2021-01-31) Miqueias Marcos De Oliveira Malaquias: até agora funciona! Consegui bloquear canais indesejados, Muito obrigado pela ajuda, excelente plugin.
  • (2021-01-30) Zebux Lux: Thanks for all the effort on developing this extension! Like the other users said, Video Blocker recently has stopped working properly, so this is a great replacement. edit: You finally fix it! Working as intended again
  • (2021-01-29) asd fgh: Nice
  • (2021-01-27) Jean F.: Good to have it back working with the "late 2020" Youtube design. I would not spend a minute on that website without this extension (and adblock).
  • (2021-01-27) Олег Пешков: Спасибо за расширение!
  • (2021-01-26) Maks Kovalenko: The best !
  • (2021-01-26) sandie doos: works or worked great until the new tags(I think they are new never seen them before) above the recommended and under the next video showed up. now I see videos from fox news again in my recommended list. as you can see the X is also missing under the tags, https://prnt.sc/wkaw57 edit: the update works great thanks.
  • (2021-01-24) petebeat8888: It doesnt work anymore since youtube updated the list to the right
  • (2021-01-24) Turjak_art: This extension feels for me like unfinished. And they never mentioned that you can only block from youtube start-page. Sometimes it shows X and sometimes not.
  • (2021-01-23) emerson martins: funcionava perfeitamente mas ultimamente , se quiser bloquear um canal, tenho abrir o vídeo sugerido e bloquear a partir de lá, mas não quero abrir esses vídeos e dar mais visualizações a eles, se melhorar, melhoro a classificação.
  • (2021-01-22) Scott Seufert: While I'm not going to call anyone an extremist, I have found that there are some channels that simply cannot be blocked. It tends to be the "verified" channels and some channels don't even have a X to click in search results. For example: if I search "Linux" a list of Linux related videos appear and the X only shows up next to channel names that don't have an avatar. In that case I'd have to click a video from a channel I wish to block, then click the X, then the back button and the channels are sometimes still listed and sometimes not. In some cases that channel not only shows up later in YT's recommended list, but also future search results for the topic search again as if the channel was never blocked, even when the channel is clearly listed as a blocked channel. Additionally, when I watch a video, the recommended list on the right sometimes shows an X, and sometimes not, and still other times not for every video. I have this extension in both Chrome and FireFox. I don't block thousands of channels, just a select few. I'd say < 20.
  • (2021-01-21) Сергей Радуга: Раньше работало, но сейчас на январь 2021 - ни-икс-ера! Эти навальные со своими путиными лезут со всех щелей - как тараканы, и этот Blocker не помогает, надо искать что-то новенькое.
  • (2021-01-16) ThiagO NascimentO: NÃO FUNCIONOU AQUI
  • (2021-01-14) Adrian Torres: Hey dude thank you!!! worked perfectly!!! Finally blocked some annoying channels!!!
  • (2021-01-12) A R: I would say that at this point the developer has stopped support it. It only partially works and there hasnt been an update since last April(2020).
  • (2021-01-12) GoNi174: 거지 같은 채널 차단하니 속이 시원하다
  • (2021-01-11) DRS: It did not block certain channels. I clicked block an element to see if that would work. It blocked all thunbnails on youtube on chrome. Doesn't seem to have a way to unblock. Now I have no thumbnails. No web page to explain how to use the extention that I could find. Worst extention I have ever used
  • (2021-01-11) Driver Tohge: Blocked channels will no longer be found in search. It would be even better if the ability to block from the search screen was restored. ブロックしたチャンネルは、検索でも引っかからなくなります。 検索画面からのブロック機能も復活してくれたらなお嬉しい。
  • (2021-01-08) Hiro Mt: 気づいたらブロック出来なくなっています。早急な改善をお願いいたします。
  • (2021-01-03) Damocles: İnanılmaz!! Youtube'un en gerizakalı sürüsü tiplerini hep blokladım şimdi istediğiniz kadar çöp içinde çırpının..
  • (2021-01-02) 리을: 진작에 쓸걸.. 꼴보기싫은것들 차단되니 편-안
  • (2020-12-31) Samuel Brown: So satisfying to watch obnoxious channels disappear when you search them
  • (2020-12-27) Darthmufin: Worked perfectly up until Youtube added a new filter to the related videos. This new sorting function broke every video under it, now this extension only works for the "up next" single video that appears at the very top. Extension needs to be updated to counter this, otherwise it's practically useless.
  • (2020-12-24) Michael Yang: it seems only support blacklisting, not whitelisting, that'd be great for kids. is there a plan?
  • (2020-12-22) Анжелика Андреева: не блокирует эта шляпа ничего
  • (2020-12-21) Josué Opazo: It works!
  • (2020-12-17) Furkan8k: X button on searched videos page is not showing up. It was there before. I'm not sure why isn't it working.
  • (2020-12-16) Piotr Misiuna: I was hoped it would block the channels in my YT profile, not just remove them through styling, but that's fine. I used it for a week and now it doesn't work anymore, only the top suggestion has the 'x' on it, and nowhere else is it to be found.
  • (2020-12-13) H UBDN: Youtubeを利用するうえで必要なプラグインだったけど、検索結果から省く事が出来なくなっているので使い勝手はすこぶる悪くなった。 右クリックでのコンテクストメニューからブロックする項目も消えた?
  • (2020-12-08) Global Coalition: Ever since Google+ had shut down back in 2019, I had been looking for a way to block youtube comments so I couldn't see them anymore, finally. I can at last rest knowing I don't have to encounter toxic commentators again. :)
  • (2020-12-06) Rafael Faria: Finally a extension to block youtube videos that works. I've been searching for an extension like this for some time and none of them seem to work. This one, apparently works just fine, I've only been using for a couple of hours, but every regex that I used is been applied correct and it even has animation when it's hiding some video.
  • (2020-11-25) State Andrei: 25/11/2020 THIS WORKS. THANK YOU SO MUCH. YOU ARE A SAINT. I MANAGED TO BLOCK ALL THE FILTHY INDIAN CHANNELS FROM YOUTUBE. [Feature Request] -Block by keyword such as "india"
  • (2020-11-22) Family Bird: It simply blocks somebody with a push of an X. It's an awesome extension that still works. Great extension.
  • (2020-11-18) Блоггер Kreo: Нужна возможность блокировки канала в поиске.
  • (2020-11-18) Starlight Valkyrie: It didn't work. I see see the Youtube channel and their videos even though I added the user name and channel.
  • (2020-11-14) oink oink: 今はわざわざ動画のページに飛ばないとブロックできないようになってしまった模様。早急な対策を望みます。
  • (2020-11-11) Batuhan Batuhan: You make the internet a better place sir. Kudos. All this app needs is a filter by keyword feature. Such as filter anything that involves the word "asmr"
  • (2020-11-09) ちゃんとブロックされていない(特に有名と言われるサイトと外国のサイト) たまに自分のチャンネルが勝手にブロックされる事がある。 嫌がらせか
  • (2020-11-03) istvan tamas: doesnt work does nothing
  • (2020-11-02) Daniel C: Works great. Should be a standard feature in YT.
  • (2020-11-02) Love this extension!!! Works great with Brave browser. Recommend it to quite a few people in comment sections and this is probably my favorite extension! Kept me sane during quarantine
  • (2020-10-30) JoeDan54: Doesn't work. When it does, blocked channels' videos still pop up briefly before disappearing. If you're blocking channels to avoid spoilers, this is completely useless even when it does work.
  • (2020-10-28) かりゆき: 残念ながら検索結果の段階でブロックマークが出なくなってしまった。
  • (2020-10-27) Bagatur Bayur: çalışmıyor

    Hi,I am have a problem,everytime I go to a youtube video,the recommandations videos on the right side of the video automatically and rapidly blocks the videos even though I never blocked them at all,and it keeps on blocking all the videos until it is completely blank,the same thing happens when I search on the search bar, the results is that it automatically rapidly starts to block youtube videos.
  • (2020-09-05, v:2.2.1) Sarah McGovern: No option to block videos when you search
    Hi, I have this extension in my primary email and it works amazingly. Sadly, for this account, whenever I search videos on youtube I can't block the videos from the search result as there is no "X" button. If I want to block a video, I have to input the channel's name manually. Thank you!

  • (2020-06-04, v:2.2.1) darius sg: Google search result bypass
    It works beautifully, however, it does not filter the google search result for the channel's video which then lead to the video/playlist made by the blocked channel, effectively bypassing it/useless. I suggest also blocking the video from the channel on top of filtering and removing the search result from the channel. Consider Video Blocker(https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/video-blocker/kkgpdmegkhdheglikjleejknplhdpbck?hl=en) as a guide
  • (2020-05-13, v:2.2.1) Alex Gene: blocking in the mobile page of youtube
    I use an android web-browser (kiwi) on the phone that supports chrome extensions and naturally i use your lovely extension as well there too alongside a few more for youtube (to have genuine modularity over youtube when android apps fail to have further options in one pack, instead of many apps that each one has something the other doesn't). now in "desktop site" option, on the phone's screen the blocked videos remain blocked but on the mobile versions are not. (I know it's too much of a detail and presumably you developed the extension for desktop use only, that's why i ask to look into that as a suggestion rather a problem) could you make the extension to keep the blocked videos blocked on the mob. version of youtube? (assuming it's made in mind for www.youtube.com without m.youtube.com in mind as said before.). interested for this little extended functionality to the extension?
  • (2020-04-24, v:2.2.1) Anders Lindal: Removal of the 3-dot-menu feature
    Why was this removed? It was the main way I used this extension. I prefered it over the block-button as that button is easy to hit on accident.

    Sometime within the last week or two I noticed that the extensions stops functioning every once in a while. I think it's pretty much a 50/50 chance it loads or doesn't, when it doesn't there is no cross marks next to videos no indication of the extension on the youtube page and all my blocked channels appear in my recommendations and front page. It does seem to still block everything succesfully when searching for videos. Maybe a new youtube update broke something? I really hope this'll get resolved...
  • (2020-02-28, v:2.0.12) ZEFAREU INSTITUTE: Regex string doesn't work
    I think this should block any channel name containing the string "abc" but it doesn't work: /abc/ So, that should block channels named "slabcook" and abcgames" alike. But it doesn't work. I see that when I click the plus button to add to the filter list, it actually shows in the list as "/abc/" -- but it should be without the quote marks, I think.

    I'm trying to block all videos with certain keywords in their titles, but I am having huge trouble figuring out how. I first just tried adding the words to the list, however to no avail. I then tried looking up how to write regular expressions, but it makes no sense to me at all. I feel like I'm reading words that don't exist, or like the regular expressions that I found online were completely different for what I'm looking for.

  • (2019-11-07, v:2.0.2) TTAMC C.: Channel blocker bug problem
    Hi, I have been using your channel blocker for awhile now and there seems to be an issue with looking up a specific person on google and still being able to see the person you blocked picture and video link to their channel. Well when I clicked on it to see if it would still play the video it still did, but blanked out everything else from under the video. For example you could not see the name of the youtuber nor the amount of subscribers they had. I feel like this bug needs to be fixed because I do not want to be able to still see the person I blocked video on google and still be able to watch the video anyway.
  • (2019-10-13, v:2.0.0) Burhan DÜGER: Add new plugin please
    Please. I want a plugin for Youtube. Let Youtube be completely blocked but you get the option of allowed video channel or playlist. The Android app YouTuze is an example, please review.
