How to block youtube video advertising?

I installed adblock on my router OpenWrt with several blacklists.

Ads on youtube videos are blocked with ublock installed on the browser. How do I do that?

It’s import to note that Adblock via your router blocks ads via DNS sinkholing (purely via while browser based adblockers like uBlock Origin are able to look at the contents of the URL (e.g:

uBO can block the javascript that serves the ad, while DNS based adblocking can only block the hundreds (if not thousands) of subdomains YouTube uses to serve ads.

On top of this, YouTube also serves regular video content on the same subdomains that advertising content is found on, therefore making it extremely inefficient to block YT ads via DNS.


Well if adblock is not suitable is there a side way to block youtube ads through the modem?
I am flooded by them. I can ublock on the pc, but on the firetv or similar there is not so much I can do.

For Android, there is something like this:

I installed that after posting and that s a great alternative!
