YouTube is currently experimenting with server-side ad injection. This means that the ad is being added directly into the video stream.

This breaks sponsorblock since now all timestamps are offset by the ad times.

For now, I set up the server to detect when someone is submitting from a browser with this happening and rejecting the submission to prevent the database from getting filled with incorrect submissions.

    Though now I realize you actually have to get referred by one of the other members in order to start posting

    That is done with the intention of keeping the quality of content high.

    I doubt they want to get flooded with low effort “let’s play” gamers or even lower effort AI voiceover stock footage crap.

      It also doesn’t have an algorithm, which would make it difficult to find content you want when there are loads of creators
