YouTube - Ad Skipper ᴮᴱᵀᴬ (delisted)

CRX id


Description from extension meta

Automatically closes banner ads and clicks 'Skip Ad' buttons for you.

Description from store An alternative to AdBlock, specifically for YouTube. Instead of completely blocking ads which prevents YouTube channels from earning any ad revenue, this extension detects ads appearing and clicks the skip button instantly, just like a regular user would, only much quicker and effortlessly. It doesn't block ads, it just clicks close and skip for you automatically. Useful if you're tabbed out, or just lazy. For banner ads, it clicks the close button - usually before the ad is even visible. For pre-roll ads that you have to watch for 5 seconds, it will click the skip button as soon as it can. New in version 0.4 - Added the Force Skip button (next to the the search bar). This allows you to manually skip ads in the rare cases when ads are not automatically detected. It also has the useful side-effect of skipping 'Sign in to view this video' age restrictions. - Added the ability to prevent Ad Skipper from skipping a pre-roll ad. Simply hold Ctrl as the Skip button countdown reaches zero. Because sometimes you're actually interested in an ad.

  • (2016-11-04) Scott Johnston: I would rate this about 4 stars if it worked 100% of the time. For me it only works on the first skippable video then it doesn't work until you open a new tab or reload the page. Please fix this as soon as possible, by the way it's only youtube that I was trying with it.

  • (2021-03-25, v:0.4) fiapoco: date downloaded
    please add the date the user downloaded your app to the information displayed on the page where you display the apps version number, etc. That way, people like me can take a look at when an app came aboard and compare that to when the Sx's of a 'virus' were first recognized on their system and make their own judgment. In my own case, the available facts don't persuade me that this app has any kind of anything in it but very clever coding that has been performing very well, exactly as advertised. I would like to refer to that download date to confirm or disprove my hypothesis. It would quickly dispel some of of these panicky posts about a virus in every tree or some such happy horseshit. Thank you.

    Its a virus and it has affected all 2,000 users using it without any of them noticing
  • (2017-09-16, v:0.4) Andy Knapp: Mute
    I love this app! Thanks so much for this! But I do have a suggestion. Can you add an option to mute when you are viewing the ad and unmute when the video starts? I saw this in an android app that did the same purpose as your app and i thought it would be a good feature. Thanks!
  • (2016-11-04, v:0.3) Scott Johnston: Your app doesn't work all the time
    the extension only works on the first skippable video then it doesn't work until you open a new tab or reload the page. Please fix this as soon as possible, by the way it's only Youtube that I was trying with it.
