The NewPipe open source software on F-Droid is basically YouTube on
steroids, where it searches, views, plays, extracts, downloads, etc.,
youtube videos without any advertisements.
https://f-droid.org/packages/org.schabi.newpipe/

The main three things it does for you over YouTube are
1. No advertisements
2. Extracts audio from video (if you want that)
3. Downloads the video (if you want that)

Is there an ad-free YouTube clone for Windows like NewPipe is for Android?

NOTE: DO NOT USE the New Pipe on Google Play - it's a knockoff of the
F-Droid open source code but with added annoyances and ads.

Does Adblock also block in-video youtube advertisements?

How?

And that's what I'm doing on Android too. Firefox / Adblock Plus.

This is the second time Adblock has come up, and yet, nobody has answered
the basic questions about Adblock yet.

Both John Doe and Mark Lloyd have implied that AdBlock does what New Pipe
does, which is *great* if it's actually true since New Pipe does a *lot* of
good things.

1. How does Adblock block all in-video (aka slipstream) ads?

Less critically...
2. How does Adblock download the video as a video?
3. How does Adblock extract the audio from the video?

Even less critically:
4. How does AdBlock play the video in *any* video player you want it to?
5. How does AdBlock search all YouTube videos without any web browser?

DownloadHelper downloads the videos. No ads.
you can play them as you like and store a copy.
If you want to know how AdBlock Plus works then
why not try it yourself?

I appreciate that you are trying to stay on topic, which is how to get the
functionality of New Pipe in a single executable on Windows (and not by
multiple methods - none of which do what New Pipe does).

I appreciate your advice on how to download a video but most of the time
I'm streaming the video (because I just want to watch it without what
Man-wai Chang called "slipstream ads").

If I had wanted to *only* download videos, rest assured I know all about
downloading videos, probably better than most people do, but maybe not as
well as you do since you use a browser to do what I'd just use a simple
one-line command to do (so you may know more than I do on how to download
1-hour, 2-hour and 3-hour videos which is what I generally download if I
feel the need.)

On Windows, I download any YouTube video by running this simple command:
C:] youtube-dl.exe -f 18 {URL}
Or I extract just the audio with this simple command:
C:] youtube-dl.exe -x --audio-format mp3 --audio-quality 0 {URL}

But most of the time I'm just streaming the video, where you're the *third*
person to imply that AdBlock does that, all by itself, without even a
browser, which is odd becuase that's not what I think AdBlock does.

Everyone thinks AdBlock is Jesus Christ incarnate, but it's just a
host-file blocker - which if I wanted that, I'd use Acrylic DNS instead (or
maybe just the MVP Hosts file).

AdBlock is not Jesus Christ incarnate - although everyone here seems to
think it is.

In fact, you're the third person to imply Adblock does everything that New
Pipe does.

And yet, nobody has answered the simple question which is how AdBlock, all
by itself, removes what Man-wai Chang calls "slipstream" ads from any
YouTube video?

This is a simple question which can be answered by anyone who uses AdBlock
while streaming YouTube videos.

While this thread was never intended to be an AdBlock versus NewPipe
question, since three people intimated that AdBlock does everything that
New Pipe does - the main question is whether Ad Block does the *simplest*
thing that New Pipe does.

It's a simple question, which nobody has answered yet.
And I can't tell from the AdBlock ads! https://youtu.be/9iL8pGHgBjU

In fact, the NYT says AdBlock is designed to *allow* ads???????
https://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/19/b...-the-door.html

So I'm forced to ask the 3 people who suggested AdBlock a simple question.
*Does AdBlock block all slipstream ads from inside of videos or not?*

How do you stop in-video advertisement?

Does this app know how to do that?

This is a *great* question!

I do not know *how* they stop *all* the in-video advertisements but they do
stop them. You can play, play, play, play, play, to your heart's content,
and you will *never* see any in-video advertisements.
https://newpipe.schabi.org

The open-source page on New Pipe says they only use the public YouTube API
so the API must be what is used to play those annoying in-video ads.
https://f-droid.org/wiki/page/org.schabi.newpipe

Does this app know how to do that?


Yes. You will *never* see an in-video ad when you use the New Pipe player,
but it's even better than that as New Pipe allows you to use *any* player
you want - and you *still* don't see any in-video ads.
https://f-droid.org/packages/org.schabi.newpipe/

Since they use the youtube public API, there must be a way in the public
api to play those annoying in-video ads - where apparently New Pipe doesn't
do it. The good news is that the New Pipe open source code is constantly
improving - so it should be ready for Windows by now.
https://github.com/TeamNewPipe/NewPipe/issues

The code is open source so if you know how to read code (I don't), you can
see exactly how the New Pipe core extractor works.
https://github.com/TeamNewPipe/NewPipeExtractor

Why can't the open-source New Pipe code be compiled for Windows?

I strongly believe that Youtube *CAN* slipstream advertisement so
smoothly and smart that no one could detect an insertion of advertisements!

Let's see whether this would happen in the future. Wanna bet?

Remember how sponsors announce themselves in Hollywood movies?
Remember those advertisement signs in basketball or soccer matches?
How do you block them?

Now you're just getting ridiculous.

Your other question is a *great* question, which is how does New Pipe block
what you call 'slipstream' video ads.

Your other cynicism is also valid which is why hasn't Google blocked them
yet, even though New Pipe code is open source and even though New Pipe has
been around for *years*?

I don't know the answer to either of your great questions.

It's also valid that two people here (John Doe & Mark Lloyd) have inferred
that Adblock does everything that New Pipe does which is:
1. Blocks all slipstream video ads
2. Extracts audio from the video and saves it on your computer
3. Extracts the video and saves it on your computer
4. Plays using any video player you want it to play on
5. Searches YouTube videos and plays with the screen off
etc.

The only thing I'm waiting for is confirmation from either John Doe and
Mark Lloyd as to whether Adblock does all that which they imply it does.

Let's try to stay on topic.

The topic is:
Does anyone know of this slipstream-ad-free functionality on Windows?

[NOTE: Two people implied Adblock blocks those slipstream ads - but nobody
who implied it has answered the direct question yet and they haven't said
how Adblock extracts the audio from the video or how Adblock downloads the
video in its entirety (even if it's 3 hours long).]

Your question is *great* which is *how* New Pipe blocks what you call
slipstream ads.

I don't know how. But they do.

I also get your cynicism that Google could block New Pipe since it directly
competes with YouTube Red features.

However, the fact is that NewPipe is *years* old.

The fact is that if Google wanted to kill them - it wouldn't take years for
Google to block them - would it?

Let's try to stay on topic where I will answer your questions as best I
can.

The on-topic perfectly valid question here is whether or not a New Pipe
functionality exists on Windows yet - and how hard would it be for a coder
to compile the code on Windows since it's all Open Source Code?

OK, let me find out whether YouTube is being honest by declaring in the
video stream that an advertisement has started. Notice the orange strips
in the video's skip bar.

It doesn't block anything. Rather, it lets you grab the video you
actually want much faster than you could by 'streaming' it, advertising
free.
