    How do I block s.ytimg?

    Hi,

    The title says it all.
    Since a few updates this morning this s.ytimg crap is delaying my youtube vids.
    Now I would appreciate is anyone knows how to basically get rid of s.ytimg.

    Afaik it's related to flash player and webcam. I use flashplayer but not webcam.

    I'm using Ubuntu Lucid.
    Processor is intel.
    Learn the principle, abide by the principle, and dissolve the principle. Obey the principle without being bound by it. This my friend, is the GnuFu.
    Geeks die, but the Linux kernel lives forever.

    I'm assuming you're using Firefox.

    If you are, I suggest you subscribe to both the Easylist and the Fanboy's List in the Adblock Plus add-on. You can initially subscribe to one, then you have to go to Tools>Adblock Plus Preferences window, then click Filters>Add Adblock Plus filter subscription to get the other. Since I started using both, I've had virtually no ads display on all the sites I use regularly.

    Cheers!

    you can also add it to your hosts file
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/hosts
    add
    Code:
    127.0.0.1 domain-you-want-to-block
