It happens on IE. FWIW, I wouldn't recommend running it.


Friends don't let friends run IE.

I hadn't had any issues with these, until today. I had pages with TWO video ads running at one time. I've got screenshots and I'll send them your way shortly Brock.

Yeah, I seem to keep getting the Lysol ad with sound, even though I've clicked 'mute'. I sent you an email with a screenshot last night, Brock. Hadn't been having the issue for quite a while until this week, again.

This wasn't making any noise, but still found it suspect.

Yeah the Kate Hudson ad at the top right is annoying as hell. It just keeps repeating.

I've reported those Kate Hudson ads and everything from that publisher.

Okay, round... I forget which round this is. Yawn.

 

The networks have blocked the publisher of those awful world cup-framed ads. Let me know if the sound issues continue.

Just got one.The voice of a local (to me) ambulance chaser roused me to action, you can be assured.

Yeah, me too. Brock knows and I'm sure will be dealing with it. Seems like it gets stopped only to start up again. It's annoying to have to do this every time, but in the meantime, you can stop the videos from running by clicking on the little tiny stop button in the upper right hand corner of the ad. Or mute your computer as JB suggested a while back. Unfortunately muting the computer isn't always an option for me because of other things I'm doing, but try that for the next day or two while on the site until it's resolved.

Yeah, sorry about this everybody. It's beyond aggravating. It's like a never-ending game of Whack-A-Mole and to be blunt, it shouldn't be this ****ing hard to get rid of these things. I'm as frustrated as anybody about this.

Weird thing is, it appears that the volume is turned off on the ad (there's an X over the volume control) but it plays anyway.
