Hi there, I’m doing a simple task of skipping ads on YouTube with UiPath bot and then making it click on skip ads, but the problem is it doesn’t recognize the text nor the skip ads image and let’s it randomly play
In YouTube we have to observe that couple of adds only able to skip and most of the adds are not able to skip. If that condition , there is a chance of failure the BOT, you have to handle those senarious.
And you are doing it’s a requirement or for you personal not a problem. This is partially feasible.
When it comes to this particular question of Skipping ads on youtube or any browser, an add blocker extension or a PiHole installation in your network can be more effective than a robot with next to no adds shown to the user.
My only advice to you starting off is to be aware of “Tutorial Hell” rather dive into the wonderful product documentation from UiPath and once you are comfortable with the Studio interface and products, you automatically will get ideas UiPath Documentation Portal
You are making some unreasonable assumptions here though. For example what if the goal isn’t about learning, but simply solving what can be a frustrating issue? Perhaps the person doesn’t care about becoming a UiPath expert but simple wants a simple robot for themselves. That is totally on brand with UiPath’s goal of a robot for everyone.
I think you should not make such assertions until you know more.
I also feel like you are putting some personal bias in here since I think you make tutorial videos on Youtube, I could be wrong.
Either way, I think I’ll make this automation for myself, skipping ads can be annoying.
