I'm searching for an extension or script that can automatically skip to the start of a video without having to listen to the video author trying to sell me a product. Lots of content creators have started putting ads directly into their videos, and I'm searching for a way to skip them automatically.
An entire minute wasted. That's what I usually use uBlock Origin in combination with a modified hosts-file for, but they are unable to detect content embedded into the video file itself.
What the add-on would have to do:
- Find out where the author is selling things
- Skip that part
For that to work, there needs to be user generated content. Users need to mark the points in the video with ads in them. Afterwards, the database is updated and other users don't need to watch these ads, since they'd be cut out.
This system seems similar to the equivalent domains feature in LastPass, where one user makes amazon.de an equivalent domain to amazon.com and other users will see the appropriate link too.
Does an extension or script like that exist? I'm not looking for uBlock Origin.
