I said no such thing. I have no interest in either
Adblock or New Pipe. I don't use ad blocking software
and I don't stream videos. I only said if you want to know
how it works then try it and stop yapping.

Hi Mayayana,

Thanks for the advice.

Ad Block is a completely different tool than New Pipe is, where they're not
in the least similar.

To your point, I'm sure a *combination* of a half dozen Windows tools will
do what New Pipe does all by itself, but that was never the question.

The question is just whether anyone knows of a New Pipe app on Windows, and
if it doesn't yet exist, then how hard would it be for a coder to compile
New Pipe on Windows from the open source code.

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).]


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.

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).


Windows has a native adblocker feature to allow YouTube streaming
without ads, so a New Pipe clone isn't needed for ad blocking. Unlike
Android, Windows has no need for separate adblocking software except
as browser addons.

The completely separate tasks of downloading + mp3 extraction are
handled by browser addons or standalone software. I wouldn't be
surprised if there's a browser addon that can download and extract
from YouTube vids.

This is a *great* idea.
How does one turn on this "native adblocker feature" in Windows?

I wouldn't be surprised if there's a browser addon that can download
and extract from YouTube vids.


There's no value to an addon when all that is needed is a single command:
youtube-dl.exe -f 18 {URL}

Thanks for this offer to learn more as the New Pipe code is open source and
many years old, so Google knows all about it, especially since it directly
competes with YouTube Red functionality.

Notice the orange strips in the video's skip bar.


I haven't seen those "orange strips".
What are those orange strips supposed to be telling us?

That's incorrect. You can use it that way, but it definitely isn't "just
a host-file blocker".

which if I wanted that, I'd use Acrylic DNS instead (or
maybe just the MVP Hosts file).


Neither of those replace the functionality of Adblock Plus.

No big deal anyway, the Windows 10 group is definitely not
being overrun by spam, but for people who enjoy USENET
mysteries... After taking a look, it appears to be a
different poster than the one who asked before. Not that the
header being different is conclusive, but here are the two,
beginning with the prior...

By the way... The original poster can search for the prior
thread if it wants other angles/answers to its question.

Or I extract just the audio with this simple command:

....though I admit a single-stage dowbload-and-audio-extract would be
handy (unless downloadhelper has a switch of which I'm unaware -

On windows? No.

For windows? Yes, try an emulator instead.

They indicates the time when the ad would be streamed. I might be wrong
about its color... orange? yellow?

I think it's on the menu but requires installing
an external extractor. DH doesn't provide that
functionality natively.

It looks like there's a one-piece Windows version he

https://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/download.html

It needs VC++ 2010 runtime. But it's not GUI.
Wikipedia says there are frontends available, but
doesn't provide links. Typical OSS: Great idea.
Probably great functionality. Detestable usability
limited to DOS-esque command lines that were
outmoded 25 years ago.

I do have a Firefox extension on my computer to download from YouTube. I
don't need to do this on Android.

We seem to have some sort of crazed OSS evangelist
here who has no intention of actually communicating.
He's only using posts as an excuse to post additional
sales pitches. At least it's free, anyway.
