Remove Video Adverts Please

0
June 18, 2016

I do not mind seeing adverts, however the Video Adverts on XDA automatically unmute themselves when the next advert loads and they load at the bottom of the page meaning I have to scroll all the way down to stop them.

Then there is the issue of video adverts and low bandwidth and low capped connections.

Just please go back to banner adverts

I don't use Ad-Blockers because my sites survive off ad revenue, would make me a hypocrite if I banned people for using them and then used one myself

Can't seem to figure out how to send attachments in PMs.. The add "neurofen" also has sound..

found 2 more adds with sound..

First one is for "Gaviscon" and the second is like a music video-clip??

Isn't there a way to skip adds with sound in general? It scares the creaps out of me when sound goes on unexpected in the middle of the night..

One more.. "Vanish" cleaning stuff

and the "music vid" is still there..

EDIT: "gaviscon" also... :(

And a new one.. "Air Wick"

Is there another way to read the forum on a win-pc? (like the xda app on android?)

I'm afraid this won't stop..

yeahh its annoying. dont mind ads but the sound is annoying. Happened to me a few times now.

Twice in the library had my volume on and the add started screaming.

But mostly when I'm listening to music with my headphones and then the ad interrups my great songs

They need the ads so if not many people can donate they have the ads to receive the money as they are pain by the company submitting the ads. XDA should keep the ads, it is a great forum and deserves the money. I am 11 years old, no joke. I think XDA has helped me make lots of apps with help from coding, ROM cooking, theming, and more. XDA might get more money from the video ads, so that covers the bandwith costs for all us users to take our time to view the forum.

Sound:

If your using windows, click the sound icon, then mixer. Turn Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome sound off to 0 and keep the other sound on.

Two words - if you're using Firefox that is...

I think everybody here agrees with that, XDA is great and they deserve the money. I don't mind seeing ads, it's just the sound that's too much..

This gave me an idea, I installed opera browser on all my computers and set the volume to zero. For now opera is my "xda-app", so I can leave the sound on in my default browser (chrome)..

Yup, use the add blocker plugin for firefox which is posted above.

June 18, 2016

With add block you can coose adds you want to block. So you can leave all normal adds and block only adds with sound...

Cheers

Here is the problem, if XDA wants to make money from ads that is okay, but ads with sounds will just force more users to use ad blocking add-ons which in turn will lower the revenue from the ads....so kill the ads with sounds...

FYI these ad companies can tell if these is a rise in ad blocking amongst a forums users and will lower the payments made to a Forum..

@XDA: You should really quit your current ad network if you can't disable sound ads. I don't mind ads, sometimes I even click on them, but ads shouldn't contain sounds which aren't muted by default. I'm really going to hate XDA for those ads. This should be a high priority issue for you guys. If those sound-ads won't dissapear I'm going to install flashblock.

I fully agree here. Sometimes (like now) I browse XDA at work. There is nothing worse then an audio ad comming on when my boss walks by.

Yep also when you open multiple tabs you can hear multiple ads screaming through eachother. Really annoying.

June 18, 2016

As before, please PM "svetius" with a screenshot of the sound/video advert (stupid as this may appear for sound ones)

He'll remove them. If they don't get directed to him there's no much we can do about this.

June 18, 2016

I posted several screenies (and send PMs to svetius), but they are all still alive..?

sodding video ads are annoying the hell out of me now.

June 18, 2016

I understand that XDA needs to make money from advertising, but the only thing these video ads are going to accomplish is driving people away from the site.

They're driving me insane.
