This app might be of use to those of us who’ve been struggling with YouTube’s adverts recently. I’ve just become aware of it after YouTube issued a cease and desist to its author - who is also the Right To Repair activist.
Just rried, but it doesn’t seem to want to download to Windows 11. OTOH the only UTube ads I’ve encountered are the new requirements on France 24, which only last a few seconds. Have discovered that after initially logging on the Fr24, I can turn my adblocker back on without affecting anything.
In the case of YouTube, I am happy to pay for YouTube Premium as that means the people who create the content that I watch still get some dosh, even though I am not seeing the ads. I feel differently about ads on Amazon Prime Video, however.
I’ve watched a few films and series on AP but often not enjoyed them. They often have a hard, slightly one-dimensional feel, usually using more graphic violence than is needed. It’s nice that sometimes they fund slightly less commercial movies, but it feels too much like just cranking the handle than making art or storytelling.
