How to Bypass YouTube ADs

Sometimes the random ads are irritating in YouTube video. I am showing how you can bypass YouTube Ads by using a simple trick.

What to do?

  • Open your browser.

  • Visit URL.

  • When you visit your favorite video on YouTube, on address bar, you need to add a dot [.]

  • Done.

POC Example

When you visit a YouTube video, Url looks like, and here you will need to add in URL.

  • (Showing ADs)

  • (Not Show ADs)

Note - It will work on the desktop. For mobile browser, you need to use a desktop version of the video page.

How does it works

It's a commonly forgotten edge case, websites forget to normalize the hostname, the content is still served, but there's no hostname match on the browser. Hence, no cookies and broken CORS − and lots of bigger sites use a different domain to serve ads/media with a whitelist that doesn't contain the extra dot.
