    Youtube forcing ads on uBlock

    From wikipedia: "The uBlock project official repository was transferred to Chris Aljoudi by original developer Raymond Hill in April 2015, due to frustration of dealing with requests. However Hill immediately self-forked it" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UBlock_Origin You're right. uBlock...

    Youtube forcing ads on uBlock

    UPDATE: Okay, so I tried removing uBlock and installed uBlock Origin instead (even though this is supposedly a known problem with uBlock Origin as well). UBlock is a forked version of uBlock Origin that has been stripped down and made lighter (fewer filters and features). That seems to have...

    Youtube forcing ads on uBlock

    I don't see the ads themselves either, just the blank screens and 'skip ads' notifications. Do you see any of these with Brave?

    Youtube forcing ads on uBlock

    I am using uBlock with Firefox. This has never happened before, and even with the most recent Firefox update it is still happening. This is what I am seeing..... Start of every video (all videos, doesn't matter which ones). The screen goes blank, and I have to manually click off the 'skip ad'...

    Youtube forcing ads on uBlock

    I have uBlock which has worked great against any and all ads on youtube for at least 6 years. That is, until about two weeks ago. Now I notice at the beginning of every video, the screen goes blank and I have to click off 'skip ads' in order to start playing the video. Then at a random point...

    Video RAM vs Cuda Cores

    Thanks so much for your detailed reply. One last question: What about future proofing? Would 8 GB of vRAM last 5 or 6 years? What is the pace for doubling vRAM?

    Video RAM vs Cuda Cores

    Thanks, you're right, I should have specified what work apps I use: Adobe Photoshop Adobe Premier Elements (thinking of switching to DaVinci Resolve) Navisworks 3D viewer I sometimes have more than a dozen browser tabs open, plus Premier Elements, plus Photoshop. Just one 4K monitor 27" I...

    Video RAM vs Cuda Cores

    I'm trying to decide between an RTX 3060 and 3060 ti for my next build. The 3060 has more memory but the 3060 ti has more cuda cores. Just wondering what programs would benefit from more cuda cores, and which applications would benefit from more memory? What are the trade-offs?

    Need a New Video Card, and Quistion about GeForce GTX 1660 Ti pricing???

    I agree. I would wait for the RTX 3060 or 3060 ti. If the prices for these don't stabilize or come down, then hopefully the 1660 ti should come down in price. If not, then grab a 1660 super. There is very little difference between them. Steve at GN even said the 1660 ti isn't worth buying over a...

    3800XT or 5800X ?

    Thanks. That's the exact cooler I have, the Noctua D15s. I'm still worried about 5800X temps however. So I am thinking about maybe going with a 3800XT and getting a slightly higher end GPU. It would be nice to have the extra performance and L3 cache on the 5800X though. In any case, I'm...

    3800XT or 5800X ?

    Interesting. I hadn't thought of that. So spend a bit more on the video card, less on the CPU, and get Davinci Resolve?

    3800XT or 5800X ?

    Too late for me to switch to Intel now. I already have a AMD motherboard (X470 Tai Chi) and almost all other components. Is the 3900X really faster than a 5800X ?

    3800XT or 5800X ?

    Can't make up my mind. I was leaning toward getting the newer 5800X, but then started reading about all the hot temp problems. It's got me worried. I don't game, though I do some video editing, and a little 3-D work. I need 8 cores but don't really need 12 cores. I'd get the 5900X to avoid...

    New 5800X Running Hot

    Looks like hot temps for the 5800X are not universal but still fairly widespread:

    5800x cooling question

    If you get the 5800x, I would throw the best cooling at it you can afford, but even then, it may still run hot:
