I tried allowing YouTube Ads with no-cosmetic-filtering: youtube.com true but it seems like that it still blocks Ads (At least I don't see any Ads on YouTube anymore)
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
Edit: I don't want to disable the extension completely, I just want to allow Ads, but block any tracking. I have to same problem for 9gag.com, I would like to allow Ads with no-cosmetic-filtering: 9gag.com true but Ads are still blocked (There are only grey fields)

  • Disable the add-on from browser settings menu.

If you only want to allow some YouTube channels in uBlock Origin and know the exact channel name (case sensitive), do :

  • Open Add-ons manager
  • Find uBlock Origin and click Preferences
  • Select "show dashboard"
  • Click Whitelist
  • Type in the following

    youtube.com/*user=<<channel name>>

If you wish to white-list all the channels, you may install Tampermonkey or Violentmonkey, then visit the userscript YouTube - whitelist channels in uBlock Origin and click on "Install this script". Clicking on the nearby question-mark will show additional help.

  • Are you sure there is no "inbuild" option to whitelist ads on YouTube? I don't want to use additional scripts, also I dont want to whitelist just one YouTube channel.

  • I can't be sure, I only don't know of another method.

  • If you want to allow all YouTube ads I think that would be enough changing the last step and just using youtube.com/* (as I understand you weren't using the whitelist but another option). Oct 15, 2018 at 13:15
