TTV ad-block

Twitch has circumvented this method of ad-blocking with a third-party extension warning screen.

The extension is still available as described below, but depending on your usage, may not be adequate. This repository is now archived.

@pixeltris has also curated some possible alternative methods: https://github.com/pixeltris/TwitchAdSolutions


Works best when paired with uBlock Origin

Chrome/Firefox extension that should? block ads on Twitch.

For security, this extension uses the minimum amount of permissions possible, and the code is as simple as possible.

Chrome installation

Download the extension from the Chrome extension site: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ttv-ad-block/kndhknfnihidhcfnaacnndbolonbimai

If you previously did a manual installation, remove that extension and install this one for automatic updates.

Firefox installation

Download the extension on the Firefox addons site: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ttv-adblock/

If you previously did a manual installation, remove that extension and install this one for automatic updates.

Notes and troubleshooting

  • If you previously did the userResourcesLocation trick in uBlock, remove that script and purge the cache, as it will conflict.
  • If you have "Alternate Player for Twitch.tv" installed, disable it.
