1. dyn-skip / dyn

  • Notifies Twitch that ads were watched before requesting the main live stream.
  • Falls back to mute-black if this fails (use an alternative solution if it always fails for you, as it adds additional load).
  • Midroll ads are muted/blacked out. See dyn-skip-midroll-alt for an alternative solution.

Script for uBlocker:

Script for TemperMonkey:

Click on this link for script.

You can also try other dyn scripts from this link. All of the scripts are working as of posting this. Below I have mentioned the features of all the dyn scripts.

dyn-skip-midroll-alt 

  • A mix of dyn-skip / dyn. During midrolls this plays a low resolution stream instead of nothing – might be a little glitchy but should always play something.
  • If you see a Waiting for ads to finish banner without midroll in the banner text, you should be able to just refresh the page to get a regular stream.

dyn-video-swap 

  • Ads are replaced by a low resolution stream for the duration of the ad.
  • Similar to dyn, but skips closer to 20 seconds when switching to the live stream.
  • You might see tiny bits of the ad.
  • Audio controls wont work whilst the ad is playing.

dyn

  • Ad segments are replaced by low resolution stream segments (on a m3u8 level).
  • Skips 2-3 seconds when switching to the live stream.
  • Stuttering and looping of segments often occur (during the ad segments).
  • NOTE: Removing segments doesn’t notify Twitch that ads were watched (aka more served ads).

2. low-res

  • No ads.
  • The stream is 480p for the duration of the stream.

Script for uBlocker:

3. mute-black

If you don’t want to install any third part scripts in your browser then probably the second solution is for you.

Solution 2: Using VPN

You may have thought that how will using VPN results in solving uBlock Origin Twitch problem.

The answer is, the main purpose of using uBlock Origin is to block ads and view content without viewing ads.  Twitch ads is not visible in few countries. So, we just have to change our ip to the IP of the location where the ads are not shown. And how do we change our IP? Yes, by using VPN.

You can use different VPN to change your IP to the country where the ads are not shown.

Currently as of posting this article the Twitch ads is not shown in Serbia. You can try with out location like Costa rica, hungary etc and wait for few minutes. If you didn’t see ads there enjoy surfing it else change the location to another country and try.

Solution 3: Using Alternative websites popdog.com

There are many alternatives to view the twitch live streaming. You don’t have to open the twitch.com to view its live streaming. Some of the great alternative for Twitch are:

  1. popdog.com
  2. twitchls.com

Both of these websites are great and contains every live streaming of twitch. So enjoy your twitch live streaming from another 3rd party website.

Also you can download twitch clip using this.

Solution 4: Choose alternative platform

Twitch is not the only platform that supports live streaming for games. There are many other platform which you can choose.

The most popular ones are YouTube Gaming and Facebook Gaming, where your uBlock extension should still work and block all ads.
