Its not clear from your first post exactly what you want to block.

do you just want to block the adverts on these sites or do you want to block the sites, so there is no access to YouTube & Facebook.

if you start a video with youtube you have a publicity video, you have also sometimes publicity during the video. I would like to block this publicity

I think those advertising videos are embedded in the video so I doubt you can block them, pi hole works by blocking the web site that the advert is served from but as the adverts are embedded in the video stream there is no separate web address to block.

In the OP's terminology, are the words:

"publicity"

and

"advertising"

synonymous?

That's the only way I can make sense of this thread.

That's what I assumed.......

Done some further investigation using my own pi-hole and YouTube,

so here's the example I tested.

advert played at start of YouTube video was plus500.co.uk so I blocked that address using pi-hole and sure enough you can no longer visit the address using your browse but the advert still plays at the start of the video ,
that's because what you are actually seeing is a video playing that contains the advert, in the case of the particular video I chose the advert is actually this video "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eC7dJeK ... e=youtu.be",
so to block the advert you would need to block the video address not the advert address , but as each video has its own address it becomes impossible as you would need to block every individual advert video rather than the advert address.

Yes I mean "advertising" sorry :)

And I mean the first advertising video before the video that I want to see.
I saw that Adblock block a lot of address and there no more advertising videos. But that is not possible with pi-hole ?

thanks
