Remote Audio Ads?

    I just visited a hub. As I began to scroll down, I heard an audio (sounded like Italian) playing. I thought it may have been a video capsule but found it was an ad playing at the bottom of the hub. Is this what's happening now?

      See who is the sponsor. I had ad-ware self installed on my computer and had to remove it.

        By the time it stopped, it was blank. Really weird.

      I have come across one of those video ads a couple of times. It is distracting.

        Yeah, you can't read the hub with that loud audio playing.

          I usually just turn my sound off when that happens. But sometimes I listen to music while I am on the computer, and it is especially distracting to hear something else play while my music is on. I haven't seen too many of those ads, so hopefully they won't be popular.

      Thanks for taking time to report this.

      We had a few reports of ads auto-playing audio over the weekend.
      Usually these are rogue ads that Google finds and addresses.
      If you still see one, please let us know.
      Many times the best way to share information related to such ads is via a screenshot.

    Report it in the Hubpages glitch forum.  Ads are not meant to autoplay video.

      Will do.

    I certainly will, Matt. By the time it stopped playing, there was a blacked out space in place of the ad. Will keep you informed.

      I agree, that catching them while they are occurring it often not easy!
