Blocking screaming audio from selected web sites.

By RFink ·
I surf a lot and some web sites annoy me to no end. I want to be able to block audio from those web sites and not others. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thank you,

P.S. Firefox is my perferred browser.

My first thought

is to set up a router with acls, find what streaming protocols they use, and write an acl to block them by site ip...

I was hoping I could do it at the browser level.

My wife actually likes some of it so the router is not an option.

Thanks for the idea.

the most effective would be to set up a filtering proxy and enable or disable use of it in browser settings as needed. But this will mean either a separate box or more software on the current box.

I would be more concerned with streaming audio

because it is more prevelent and easier to control.

To block my screaming audio, I just got a divorce....... worked like a charm! ;\

I don't like screaming audio either.

by Dr Dij In reply to The big question

it comes on adds while browsing and is screaming! loud.

I'd block major ad sites in hosts file. the pre-setup hosts file from (was it mvps.org or spyware blaster) blocks large# of ad sites.

Sorry ad people but since your ads are obnoxiously screaming, they are blocked.

we had a concrete pad, painted green, and we had to mow it every day, and we liked it!

We had to walk to school barefoot, with barbed wire on our feet for traction.....
