Doubleclick is owned by Google it was put on the list for it's tracking habits. If you trust Google then you can safely remove all entries regarding Doubleclick.
To do so you would want to open the Hosts file. The location of the file is mentioned previously in the post. You will want to open it with notepad and delete all lines having to do with Doubleclick.

Thanks a lot, Tuxmaster, rshaffer61 and cbarnard. Now I'm able to watch videos from the site. By the way, with the lines that I just deleted, how much did I compromise my security relatively before? Once again, thank you all!

As far as I remember doubleclick only does tracking cookies. So more of privacy then security would be the question.

Just an FYI.

If you update the MVPS host file in the future, then those lines you took out will be back in there again.
You would just have to follow what they told you to do and edit the file again.
