Re: pop up video ads on mobile?

Ahh, perfect timing, ad. For once I am glad you showed up.

It gives me the option to play, pause, whatever, and tells me the "title" of the "video" playing. In this case, it is "parrot forums 'thread title'" or whatever. When I have video ads from other sites(if I am googling something, say) it has the name of the offending tab. I usually have 1 tab on this site open and any number of other tabs on other sites open. Right now I have 8 other tabs open(LOL OK, I have 3 open to parrot forums, 2 wikipedia, chewy, mysafebirdstore, amazon, birdbreeders.com), and parrot forums is the one playing videos(not currently, but when video ads are being played they usually are from this site). I really don't think it is an issue with my phone, I don't download apps. Free or otherwise. I cannot download or update apps thru data even when I *want* to....


I hope I'm not coming across as mad or rude. It is just annoying that I'm "spending" data on video ads. Images or text ads would be one thing.. LOL I'm so data starved I occasionally will "splurge" data on loading a song on Youtube and replay it over and over again after turning data back off. Hahaha getting internet is on the list, but it is a long list of priorities...
Not rude at all, I certainly understand. If fellow mods don't have a comprehensive explanation, will approach the administrator with the question.

Re: pop up video ads on mobile?

Ok, this is still a significant issue, and the embedded video ads are more and more common now too. I literally do not have the data to spare on this. I cannot have data overage every month because of video ads!

Re: pop up video ads on mobile?

I wonder if blocking them in your browser would fix the issue?

Re: pop up video ads on mobile?

How much I understand you! I am also mad of these pop-up notifications and ads. I also use Wi-Fi less often, because I am constantly on the road.

Re: pop up video ads on mobile?

Honestly seems to be more and more these days. I find myself using the forum less.
