What is YouBlock?
YouBlock is a unique Chrome extension that comes as a solution for spam messages in YouTube streaming video chats. The tool allows users to block spammers and stops their messages from appearing in the chat. Despite minor glitches with older messages, it works efficiently with the new ones. To block a spammer permanently, users need to report the spammer once. It's easy to manage the blocked list via extension options. The user-friendly design makes YouBlock a vital tool for YouTube streamers. Visit the YouBlock GitHub page for updates, contribution, and reporting issues.

Since the recent update in YouTube the extension is a little buggy but it works with new messages... most of the time. It will not block old messages that are in the chat before loading. You cannot block the people who sent the messages before your youtube loaded. Feel free to assist in the programming but looking at the github link at the bottom of this.

This is a feature for YouTube streaming videos chat. When there are a bunch of spammers and reporting them for spam doesn't seem to be doing anything. All you have to do is install this refresh the streaming page and then "Report message" them once and they will no longer show up in your chat.

I added the persistence that I originally wanted. To block someone permanently just block them once. To remove them from the blocked list now you need to click options in extensions and remove them from the list by clicking the X next to their name.

I need to add some features still but you can see my progress or assist here . You can also submit reports of issues there or request features.

Is there a limit on the amount of ppl you can block? I just reported the same guy 3 x's in a row. I really hope this is not the case, it's been a great app. Going to try & reinstall. So far it hasn't been working for a couple of months.

How am i supposed to use this? I installed it, then went to the Youtube chat. I reported someone, and their message kept popping up. YouBlock button didn't appear at top right, either. Edit: Actually, it's working right now. It didn't when I first installed though.

Dude, i love YOUBLOCK, but youtube has changed the design and layout of the live stream chats, and now YouBlock doesn't work. Please fix it. It's the best extension out there! Thank you!
