Supporting some YouTube - whitelist channels in Adblock Plus









If you use Adblock Plus, you may want to support your favorite YouTube authors by allowing ads on their channels. Unfortunately, Adblock Plus can only whitelist pages based on their URL, and YouTube video URLs don't include any information about the video's author. That's where this script comes in: this information is added to the URL in the form of a &user=… parameter so that you can create a whitelist filter in Adblock Plus.

In case of problems

Please post about them on the Adblock Plus forum (you can post without registering).
