Issues with ads playing audio

Issues with ads playing audio

Postby pacino » Tue Mar 10, 2015 12:12 pm

Just had a few ads play audio while I was cruising BSG. Is this something that we can fix?

Samsung ad starts talking softly about the Galaxy in the background made me think I was listening to some weird remix version of the songs I was playing.

I'd really love it if this could be turned off somehow. The ads don't even have close buttons. Super irritating.

Don't they realize Joel Embiid is in the same league they are?

Yea, but you should also turn it off for BSG because you love BSG and want to help out.

Just had this happen to me twice today after never happening before. Pretty annoying

I've had 2 tonight. Autoplaying anything annoys me but banner ads are the worst.

Martha Stewart started talking to me about something. Didn't recognize the ad network, but the logo looked like a red Adobe 'A' (i.e. without the square border) turned into a play button, not the blue AdChoices logo

It tried to load again and I managed to track down the offending ad provider. They're all by Aniview.

Hey guys, I'm sorry, I thought I answered this. I did block the CDC.gov as a provider.

I guess I have a partial answer, in that you can report the ad by clicking the "AdChoices" arrow at the top right of the ad. From there, you can also play with your ad settings. There is not supposed to be audio in the ads, so toggling audio off is not an option.

I'll look into it more, as I can. Kids have spring break this week.

I did look at blocking Aniview as a network, and it's not listed. Possible that it already was taken off the list?

So now I read Mrs. Vox's tip above; I'll try that if I see/hear it again. Thanks Mrs. V!

well, the reporting system is useless. It requires one to "Please copy and paste the ad's link location of the first ad *"

I found an image address and pasted it. "Please try reformatting".

I clicked through on the ad itself and copy that url. "Please try reformatting".

And that field is required for the form to be submitted.

reported as a 'flash' ad, with a screenshot of the ad. Let's see if anything happens!
