Build Last Release License

A Spotify AdBlocker for Windows that works via DLL injection and function hooking.


The latest version can be downloaded here. The app is portable and there is no need for an installation.


How does it work?

BurntSushi works by intercepting network requests and blocking ones that match a set of filters. This is implemented by injecting a dynamic library into the Spotify process that overrides getaddrinfo from the Windows API and cef_urlrequest_create from libcef. The status of the Spotify process is determined using wineventhook which is based on SetWinEventHook.

Can this be detected by Spotify?

Theoretically yes, but practically it probably won't.

Does it work on Linux?

No, BurntSushi supports Windows only, but you can check out spotify-adblock instead.
