    So I was streaming a movie today and i had a bug on thevideo.me but this struck me as strange since it usually works fine and it's been down for a while yet people kept posting movies to it on Primewire. So I turned off adguard (my God what a nightmare of ads) and went back, it worked fine.

    I repeated the operation a few times, same result. I think this site is blocking adguard.

    What can be done about this if anything ? Stealth mode ? Is there a way for adguard to trick the sites into thinking the ads have been displayed ?

    Would be helpful, more and more sites are acting hostile to my now that I use adguard. Usualy it's just a message but a few are now blocking.

    site for example: http://thevideo.me/mmti1ooiuvn1

    error message: video file not found (liars!)

    I'm getting that error message even if all adblockers are disabled.

    Dear Blaz, with respect, you're fucking up because I'm happily watching thevideo.me since I figured it out. Still sucks to have to disable adguard. If you have an extension installed get a clean browser and try again.

    Hey no problem, a workaround is "stop blocking for 30 seconds" function. But what would be really nice is to trick the site into thinking it's displayed the adds.

    @Alex302 as I understand the problem is that video is broken. Are you sure you get this error because of your location and not because of the ad blocking?

    @Alex302 I've done the test, same result with your link, does not work so long as adds are being blocked. I use up to date adguard 6.0 on chrome (up to date 50.0.2661.94 m 64-bit)

    posted pictures for proof.

    ads works fine:

    no ads doesn't work:

    >.< Sooooooooo I was thinking about what you said about not being able to watch videos from Russia and I remembered I'm hidding my IP... so I unchecked that and now it works fine.

    Sorry !! It was my fault. I feel very dumb now. Thanks anyway for helping out.

    Best to all, great product this is.

    @Alex302, I guess the issue could be with stealth mode's "hide ip" feature.

    You see, they return a "Wrong IP" response when you request a video file:
    Code:
    https://d9591.thevideo.me:8777/pcjtb4mj7koammfvg7efaq4lewmk6sbtfcbfnzg3khlg5ufdk7oxhv7km6ecffez4ptmgdltlr4gpaa5lgsymze3v52xarnmiyem5swklzx3dcsrpwpj7poqospqubs3bfvronxc6ewmued3pcf4psqa2xpe7ztvltiqlfj7jfcyynvvo22ytxdcodzpn4f7ivquugvl6ce3y3yhunfyaalerytxnox5i2bzry7i5h2svvbjxm6uviurgkin4lyuhfbkux6s/v.mp4?direct=false&ua=1
    It makes sense to turn stealth mode off for URLS like ||thevideo.me/*/v.mp4
