First, I wanna apologize if this topic is in the wrong section, I'm new here so please bear with me.

I'm using a Macbook Pro and was watching a livestream from my favourite football club Ajax like I always do. However while I loaded up the website and got sent to another website, I couldn't watch the game. Only after I turned off my adblocker, called uBlock Origin (installed it because I heard it's the best), the 'play' button appeared and I could start the video.

However, the problem is I keep getting all these ads on my screen and also video ads so I couldn't watch the game. Essentially, I think the adblocker stopped the videoplayer from being played, because after I turned off the adblocker I could watch the game for a minute, before all the ads start.

My question: Is there any solution for this? The livestream site I'm using (I don't know if I'm aloud to post a link so I won't) changed the way they handle adblockers I think, because 2-3 few weeks ago, the stream would play perfectly with adblocker on and without any ads.

EDIT: I tried reading the newbie guide but the page won't load.

Let me ask you this.. Is this a legal stream? If it is, then email the streamer and they should tell you how to fix the issue.
If everything is cool, did you update any of the software lately?? Some blockers use a internal list of nasty sites and your streaming site might have made the list
