ad blocker on Android Players

224 22 November 9, 2017 at 02:50 AM
I have two Android Players Tronsmart S89 and Samsung Homesync.
On few websites,there are too many ad popups .I couldn't find any good web browser that automatically blocks pop up ads.

Looks like Chrome browser on these don't allow extensions like desktop version.

any Recommendations on Browser s or apps that block these ads?

I believe Adblock Plus makes a dedicated web browser for android. Other than that, no.

Most recent reason why everyone should be armed at all times:
Santa Fe, TX school shooting. 10 killed 10 wounded.
This was a gun free zone. The shooter didn't care. Gun free zones only hurt honest citizens. If someone was armed there could've been 1 less death.

A little more involved but you might try setting up a Raspberry Pi with Pi Hole. That will centrally block most all ads across all of your network so you won't have find ad blocks for specific devices like this. Works well.

Not offhand but it's fairly easy to set up. You can find the Pi on sale regularly for not much. The OS and Pi Hole are free or whatever you want to contribute. Once you have the Pi set up and running, Pi Hole can be installed with a single command. There's some set up to point things in the right direction and to block what you want or not from there on your router/devices (point the DNS entries to it). If you can handle setting up Android devices like your players on your net, then you should be OK. Pi Hole has a browser-based interface to do all of that so you don't need to know Linux beyond maybe some trivial commands that you can follow.

It will break some things like ad links here, etc., since it's doing what it's supposed to do - block the ads. You can fix that by white listing various sites or keep the blocking and live with various workarounds (only point certain devices to it, copy links and strip, etc.). Overall it works great for what it's intended to do. For about $40 one of the best things for the money that I've put on my network.

I've not used the Zero. I run mine on the Pi 2. I'd think that it would work but don't know about speed and memory requirements.

This says that it's OK:

Have you tried Puffin? A little rough around the edges, but I like it. Blocks ads and optionally compresses graphics for less data usage.

This didn't work either, the issue I have is ,when I click play on a video a new page opens up. that's probably how they are coded to behave. Just to be sure,these are not kind of popups as they open into new browser tabs untill I click on a video

Thought that it probably would. DNS isn't real tough duty for just a home network but hadn't actually tried it. I probably would have used one too but they didn't have the Zero when I set mine up.

Did it kill the ads that you were trying to get rid of?

Some ads it pi-holed ,on some it even though opened popups,they are just blank screens .i see options to blacklist so I still have to play with it.

One thing I noticed with ads generally is ,websites behave different on windows laptops and Android phones. It's worse on Android phones.
