unfortunately, this plugin does not function correctly for the latest version of opera as it blocks the video in full screen mode but not the ad. :C

New version will be up soon, should work everywhere. And considerably faster 8-)

Great plugin! Would be great if you made the plugin block more advertisement servers/sites, like for example

Ad blockers are hard to maintain and there are a number of very good plugins already. I use Ghostery

Iam using opera 12.10 , and the version 1.4 of the extension , and is not working on opera 12.10 , and before when you go to a video using the links from the embeded one , it shows ads .

Win 7 x64, Opera 12.10 x64 and x32 (clean install and my working copy).
Haven’t seen any ads on any videos while very long testing period, even with Ads Server Blocking option off. It must be some other extentions or settings influence, I couldn’t fix the problem until I see it myself…

Maybe is because i upgraded the opera from a older version , not a clean install , i will try a clean install and see if works , and i dont think that can be a “conflict” problem with other extensions , since i use only more 2 and the function is totally different.

After the clean install , it works , so far no problems found .

Dear Mikanoshi,
Thank you for contributing your program.

Please add a switch so that users can prevent your extension from automatically updating itself. It is important to me that I be able to control when my computer goes onto the internet. It’s essential for users to be able to turn off automatic updating.

Richard S.
This extension has no update or autoupdate functions.
It’s probably an Opera’s built-in feature.

An extension might be updated in the range of 1 to 30 days. You can change the auto-update check interval by going to opera:config#AutoUpdate|UpdateCheckInterval — the default value is 3 days or 259200 seconds.

The whole update mechanism for Opera extensions can be turned off together with the browser auto-update under opera:config#UserPrefs|LevelOfUpdateAutomation.

It seems auto-update option in Advanced – Security tab affects extensions as well, you can select Notify there.
