    if you know the path the url uses to the flash videos you can block it through access restrictions

    eg. actual url - ""
    block this - ""

    You will need to spend a little time looking at the source of the web pages in the site in question to figure out where and how.

    sorry, I'm pretty new to tomato as well, but I'd give it a shot if I was at home.

    I quickly reviewed, selected "view source" from my browser. I found a LOT of javascript and tracking agents. As I can't read hebrew I went through the web page source and found some ad related stuff and third party trackers. I also found references to the the flash video javascript and the path to the video files. I added them to a new "Access Restriction" under tomato. Here's what I added.

    Save the Access Restriction and try your website - voila, no more flash videos. The web page loads a little quicker now too. And third party trackers are now being blocked.

    You will need to do some fine tuning by reviewing the source yourself. You can use this method to permenantly block annoying popups by preventing the scripts from being downloaded in the first place.
