Tested with uBlock origin and bttv installed
TTV AdEraser aims to remove livestream ads as well as add some useful features to our favourite streaming site :-).
I will try to maintain this project as well as possible and if you have any feature requests or would like to report bugs, feel free to let me know by opening up a new issue.
With TTV adEraser you can choose between a variety of different usability options. By default all options will be enabled.
TTV AdEraser is now available on the Chrome Web Store. You can install it by following this URL: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ttv-aderaser/pjnopimdnmhiaanhjfficogijajbhjnc
If you would still like to install the extension manually simply follow these instructions:
"chrome://extensions"into the URL bar and navigate to the installed extensions overview page.
The extension should now be installed and show up in the installed extensions overview! Now you can enjoy an ad free live stream experience.
Do not delete the extension folder or it will be removed from Google Chrome.
There is currently a dev_build version of the extension in the dev_build branch. If you want to install the extension on the standard Firefox you will have to follow these steps:
"Load Temporary Add-on..."
Unfortunately you will have to do this each time you restart firefox or download the Firefox Developer Edition. If you have the Firefox Developer Edition or Firefox Nightly installed, you can install the extension permanently by following these steps:
"xpinstall.signatures.required"into the text field that shows up and set the value to
"Install Addon from file..."
This way you will not have to reinstall the extension each time you restart your browser.
Keep in mind though that this is still a development build so you might encounter a couple of bugs. Please let me know if you find any, I'd really appreciate it.
You can download the dev_build from the following URL: https://github.com/LeonHeidelbach/ttv_adEraser/archive/dev_build.zip
"userResourcesLocation"setting in uBlock origin, make sure to remove the script and purge the cache, as it might conflict with the extension.
TTV AdEraser now switches the embedded player and the original one if the "purple screen" with twitch's "disable ad block" notification is displayed. As soon as the "purple screen" disappears, players are switched again. If both, the "purple screen" as well as an ad are displayed at the same time, you might see either for a couple of seconds until the stream continues. This is unfortunately the best method of blocking ads at the moment.
The peek preview feature can now show a preview card thumbnail of the stream instead of the embedded stream. A new option for this has been added to the "UI options" menu.
