    Could you, please, check these rules?

    Sorry, thought that was an error code generated.
    Yes just tried it and it works thanks.;)
    Does that now get built into a filter for everyone?
    I know I am a bit dense I am just your average man in the street, :)

    EDIT: it is now randomly blocking when running.
    AD: It became unusable. So I thought how are they changing it as I am watching. Cookies!
    I cleared my history and it is working.;)

    Working perfectly now,just have to refresh the page of the video I am going to watch after navigating there.
    Wow Thanks!

    I added Alex302's filters to my user filters list and it worked great - programmes play with no ad breaks and no anti-adblock messages. When I cleared my user filters the anti-adblock message came back, which would imply that these extra rules are beneficial. Can they be added to the official filter distributions?

    Yes, I will add them(or only the necessary rules), but I want to reproduce the issue on my end.

    I added this rule only to my user filters but saw the anti-adblock message as before. I then added your full list of 16 filters and the anti-adblock message went away and the programme played fine.

    Ok. Please try to find only the necessary rules. Disable them one-by-one and check after each iteration.

    I've done some more testing and found that this one rule works great for me:

    Even with all the rules it sometimes throws up the adblock detected and needs to be refreshed.

    You might need to clear your browser's cache when testing rules like that.

    I tried the ten fwmrm.net rules using just one at a time and saw the anti-adblock message on each occasion, until I tried the last rule. However, when I tried the last rule a second time in private browsing (to avoid cache issues), I saw the anti-adblock message.

    I can confirm though that when I have whitelisted fwmrm.net on channel4.com, I have never seen the anti-adblock message. As the rule is only active on channel4.com, then it has no negative impact on other sites. Perhaps it is going to be difficult to write a more specific rule that works reliably.

    Add my fwmrm.net rules and open filtering log. Enter fwmrm.net to search scring, select `Blocked` checkbox and reproduce the issue in private tab. Make screenshot of the log.

    I performed this test and sometimes I got the anti-adblock message and other times avoided it. However, here are two URLs that showed up as blocked in the logger (each appears multiple times):

    http://adm.fwmrm.net/p/c4_live/Video2AdRenderer.swf
    http://adm.fwmrm.net/p/c4_live/UberlayAdRenderer.swf
