I've noticed a massive increase in the amount of videos on YouTube that take stock video and adds a computer voice reading an article (usually not credited). It makes searching for content a PITA.

Chrome has an extension that will block selected YouTube channels. You will have to add the channels/keywords manually, but the more you do it, the better it gets. It also allows the export & import of items.

Maybe we could start a list?

Chrome:
Https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... hkcghmgfhk

Firefox:
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/video-blocker/

Opera:
https://addons.opera.com/extensions/det ... o-blocker/

Here is an export of what I have so far. Save this as a JSON file:

Code: Select all

[
{"key":"Dung Tran","type":"channel"},
{"key":"HD World Military Channel","type":"channel"},
{"key":"New Update Defence","type":"channel"},
{"key":"Warthog Defense","type":"channel"},
{"key":"U.S. Military Technology","type":"channel"},
{"key":"Military Update","type":"channel"},
{"key":"US Defense News","type":"channel"},
{"key":"GLOBAL DEFENSE","type":"channel"},
{"key":"US Military News","type":"channel"},
{"key":"Hot News","type":"channel"}
]
