Video Ads Now Playing on JWN?

    Is there a way to stop the advertisement videos that play when I am reading a thread?

    I don't remember this happening until this afternoon. There is no 'pause' or 'stop' button to grab so I can silence the video and it slows down my system.

    I don't mind static ads but the videos create stress on my computer system - and me!

    Help, please.

    You can set video preferences in the google ads by clicking the |> symbol but if you are getting auto-playing videos then you may want to check your system for malware / adware that hijacks the ads and inserts it's own.

    As far as I know google doesn't allow auto-playing video ads (unless it's a rogue advertiser).

    Frequently I am finding that the text color & highlight box is blocked by the ads on the right side of the message box when writing a new post.

    Any way to resolve that, Simon?

    rogue advertisers are common on another board I frequent.

    @Simon - Thank you. I went to google and changed my settings. The problem seems resolved.

    Thank you!
