3rd Party Ports - ajayyy/SponsorBlock Wiki

Some awesome people have made ports of SponsorBlock to different platforms.

These are not made or reviewed by me. Please send issues/feature requests to the developer of the port. Use at your own risk.

Android:

NewPipe x SponsorBlock (Fork of NewPipe) by @polymorphicshade

NewPipe is a third-party Android App for YouTube. This fork supports skipping all categories, channel whitelisting and colour on the seekbar. This only supports auto skip, not manual skip.

Vanced (Closed-Source Mod for Official YouTube App) (Source of the SponsorBlock parts) by @JakubekWeg

(Not available on the Google Play Store)

Support can be enabled in the settings. Close to feature parity with the extension. This is a closed-source app not made by me, so you might not want to sign into a Google account.

MPV Media Player:
