Safe Mode: On
Spyware, Adware, Pop-ups on Live Leak videos?
 Part of channel(s): Yoursay (promoted)

I like LiveLeak.com, and tell people to come here to view various channels. I've heard from a number of people that they don't go to liveleak.com because of the alleged spyware and/or adware that they say is here. I'm an author on opednews.com, [my page]. I want an alternative to youtube and anything to do with google. I believe the censors will eventually target more independent bloggers and journalists to remove their content if they aren't cheerleaders for the international corporate and banker owners of the US Government, Military, Police, and US Courts. So, that is why I prefer to be here, but ...

What happens in this video happens in embedded videos. Can anyone tell me what this is and why it is appearing? Thank you.

      I use Firefox with Adblock+, FlashBlock, and Ghostery.

      Ghostery disables 'third party extension' that track you and slow your web access down.

      Obvioulsy for LL I enable flash, but most other sites are blocked. You'll feel a whole lot better if you block flash.

    • @DEADBEEF Yes yes yes. I also use Flashblock. A major assist to security!!

      You should have a look at NoScript.

      Security and stability. Lots of flash is seriously buggy. Watch your browser slow down to dead on some sites.

  • Here's a clue. It's not adware or spyware rather it's just the functionality of the Flash player. edge.liveleak.com is the content distribution network meaning it's how we get the video to you so you can watch it.

  • Just use extensions in FF or Chrome. Adblock and NoScript are a must these days.

      You da man, sungam. I use both of those, and recommend same to my IT clients.

      Most of them won't use NoScript, unfortunately. It's just too inconvenient. :-/ But it's a small price to pay for continuing to "own" your own computer.

    • @sungam do you get those wankers calling from overseas saying you have something wrong with you computer?

    • @BeerBasher I use to always get them.

      After spending 20 minutes on the phone with him teaching me how to open up a web browser and telling me how to type something called a URL into a thing called an address bar (I thought it was a candy bar of some sort). He get fed up and Ive never had a call like that again.

      I got inspired by this dude: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29VDC1_gpFY

      He has the funniest/most random fucking with telemarketers ever. I swear he is in acid 24/7

    • @sungam that dude made me crack up.
      i subbed to his channel.
      I got a call last night from a guy trying to sell me a holiday package for 10 days for only $120.
      The number came up as overseas so i asked where he was calling from, he said sydney.
      I said i have a mate that really wants a holiday so i gave him his number...but it wasnt my mates number...it was the local cop shops.

  • What page is that showing the video? Although it shows edge.liveleak.com on the Adobe notice. That does not appear to be a liveleak website page.
    edge.liveleak.com is a legitimate source for video transfer. If you click on a video on a liveleak page, if you look at the bottom left of your browser it will show the source. I have been here a very long time and have never seen this at liveleak. I have however seen that box while playing some online games.
    I have never seen any virus activity from More..

  • It's Adobe Flash Player Settings....

    It's asking if you'd like to give "edge.liveleak.com" permission to store information on your computer.

  • Can't see what's going on because I can't watch the video...

    Quicktime and any apple software also makes PCs unstable (seriously)

  • I must admit SvenVonErick, this is the best video you have uploaded to LL.

    If you do continue to post vids, post more like these, you know, the ones that dont work!

    By the way: REPORTED

  • For Firefox I use Ghostery.com and it blocks and shows you everything it blocks on every web page, pretty cool. Not sure if compatible with IE or safari or any others. But liveleak i get 8 blocks on every page, this is whats blocked on liveleak - Sharethis - Quantcast - Market Grid - google Analytics - google adsense - google +1 - Facebook connect - twitter button, hope this helps.
