Boring Video ADS on Youtube seem to download content from many URI all around internet. Thank to Firebug (Mozilla Plugin) it’s very simple to individuate domains from which your browser downloads ADS and Video ADS when you watch Youtube’s Video.

Red lines are contents not downloaded.

A very simple procedure to avoid Video Ads is to modify the (famous) HOSTS file letting your operating system to resolve the domains involved in the ADS network with ip 127.0.0.1 (your own system) actually blocking downloads of pages, code and ADS videos. I prefer this procedure than many others you can find on internet because it’s not necessary to install anything on you computer.

How to do it (I assume you have a Windows machine, if not, find the HOSTS file for your system):

  1. Start Menu -> Accessories -> right click on “Command prompt” -> click on “Run as administrator“.
    A black window will open. If you have a Windows XP pc, simply open a commad prompt window;
  2. cut and paste in the command window this string “notepad c:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts” (then press “enter” key);
  3. notepad will open, then put those lines at the end of file:

    127.0.0.1        s0.2mdn.net
    127.0.0.1        googleads.g.doubleclick.net
    127.0.0.1        ad.doubleclick.net
    127.0.0.1        files.adform.net
    127.0.0.1        secure-ds.serving-sys.com

    (without quotes)
    You should see something like the picture;

    [Update] No Youtube ads
    close notepad saving the file;

  4. in the command window run this command ipconfig /flushdns (“enter“!) to flush DNS cache of your PC;
  5. close the command window.

Try to navigate Youtube, now you shouldn’t see any Video ADS before your preferred videos.

NOTES:

  • It may be the first host is no more strictly necessary, but if it remains in the hosts file is not a problem;
  • It may be introdused a delay from the page loading and the start of videos, only few seconds. That’s because browser has to wait the abortion of connections to localhost (127.0.0.1);
  • It may be possible not all necessary hosts are indicated in this post. Some hosts may change, depend of you location around the World due to resources distribution. Please, use FireBug to update your own host lists (and send me a message so I can update too! 😉 );
  • Playlists are not affected by any problem. You can enjoy your music without any ADS interruption.

 

Amara terra mia (1971?)
Domenico Modugno
YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9EdbVdz6gk (cantata da Massimo Ranieri)

Sole alla valle,
sole alla collina.
Per le campagne
non c’è più nessuno.

Addio, addio amore,
io vado via.
Amara terra mia,
amara e bella.

Cieli infiniti
e volti come pietra.
Mani incallite
ormai senza speranza.

Addio, addio amore,
io vado via.
Amara terra mia,
amara e bella.

Tra gli uliveti
è nata già la luna.
Un bimbo piange,
allatta un seno magro.

Addio, addio amore,
io vado via.
Amara terra mia,
amara e bella!

Addio, addio amore,
io vado via.
Amara terra mia,
amara e bella!

 

Gimme the prize (1986)
Queen

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClRsUOY7ij8]

 

‘..garage and water from the sprinklers
It also left a man’s decapitated body lying on the floor next to his own severed head, a head which at this time has no name’

‘I know his name’

Here I am I’m the master of your destiny
I am the one the only one I am the god of kingdom come
Gimme the prize just gimme the prize
Give me your kings let me squeeze then in my hands
Your puny princes
Your so called leaders of your land
I’ll eat them whole before I’m done
The battle’s fought and the game is won
I am the one the only one
I am the god of kingdom come
Gimme the prize just gimme the prize

‘Now you die’

‘I have something to say,it’s better to burn out than to fade
away…
There can be only one’

Move over I said move over
Hey hey hey clear the way
There’s no escape from my authority – Didn’t I tell you
I am the one the only one I am the god of kingdom come
Gimme the prize just gimme the prize
I am the one the only one
I am the god of kingdom come
Gimme the prize

There can be only one.

 

NOTE:

Someone like you (2011)
Adele

I heard that you’re settled down.
That you found a girl and you’re married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
It ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the lie.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I hoped you’d see my face & that you’d be reminded,
That for me, it isn’t over.

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead”
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah.

You’d know how the time flies.
Only yesterday was the time of our lives.
We were born and raised in a summery haze.
Bound by the surprise of our glory days.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I hoped you’d see my face & that you’d be reminded,
That for me, it isn’t over yet.

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead”, yay.

Nothing compares, no worries or cares.
Regret’s and mistakes they’re memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remembered you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead”

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remembered you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead”
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah.
