I have started an open source project to support Chromium + custom patches for adblocking:

https://www.bromite.org/

Download & availability
Bromite is available for download from the Bromite Official website, which points to the Github Releases for all the downloads. It is also available from XDA Labs, but only for ARM and SDK21+ (Lollipop+). We have to wait for XDA Labs to add support for multiple SDK/archs.

What is Bromite?
Bromite is Chromium plus ad blocking and privacy enhancements; it started as a port of NoChromo and nowadays adds more privacy-focused patches and is maintained against the latest stable Chromium.

Development & donations
Please join the development on Github for improvements; make sure you download the ARM64 version if you have a modern device.
Donations are welcome and help supporting development and build server costs!

Are you referring to the ARM64 MonochromePublic build? It is described here: https://chromium.googlesource.com/ch...me-APK-Targets

Edit: these are the same size Google Play store would return you, as described there

@pato2015 let me reply here to stay on topic: yes, I also noticed this problem yesterday...it's due to a build setting in Chromium. I am rebuilding it with the fixed flag and will take some hours now to complete.

Tomorrow I'll post again when it's ready.

This version you did is development version with many bugs.

I assumed that all tagged versions are stable releases; can you point me to the official explanation about this? Like, how do I know which tags are stable or not.

This might be due to missing codecs; I suggest checking again after I release a more recent tag, then reporting a bug on Bromite's github issue tracker otherwise.

This is also fixed, but build is still in progress and it takes time. Probably in one or two days will be published.

Thanks for your efforts!

See question above.

Can you open an issue on github? I need to know android version, architecture (ARM or ARM64) and the sample video that fails.

I also suspect that some codecs are missing; I have found some information about how to enable them and will try; if anybody else has more information about how to enable all codecs on Android, please post here or on the GH issue

Edit: I am now building with codecs, it's going to take a long while..so keep tuned and I will post when builds are done. This means I restarted the build for the red blink too.
