AdvOR • Wildcard for a more efficient ad blocking in AdvOR

Hi,

AdvOR is one of the most valuable pieces of software on the net, thank you so much for it. I use it for years now in conjunction with a no-js-Firefox as my default browser and it's just amazing. Thumbs up, so cool, thanks to you, I can push online anonymity to a max.

Only one thing: YouTube is pushing their in-video-ads hard these days, I guess it's because of ads via *.googlevideo.com. Yet they put random codes in front of the domain, like for example r2---sn-a5mlrnel.googlevideo.com. Therefore, is there any way to use wildcards in the banned addresses-list?

But this does not seem to work in the banned addresses-list, I tried all combinations. And in 2014, somebody asked "Can we update the "Proxy > Banned Addresses" section, so we can use * as a wildcard in hostname?"

Therefore, is there any way to block all subdomains using a wildcard in AdvOR? If not, perhaps you could include this functionality in the next update, this would be pure awesomeness! Thank you so much for your outstanding work.

Best,
Alex
