I went to approve a comment on a hub and got hit with an auto play ad. Screen shot is included. The hub the ad ran on is: http://dalehyde.hubpages.com/hub/Google … -Windows-7
The ad was refreshing with the screen shot on the bottom left.
These ads are permitted. They can autoplay video, but should not play audio unless you interact with them.
I did not check audio as my sound usually is off on my computer as various tabs will have sites open that deem a noise every time something happens on the site. Next time I will check the audio.
Thanks for the response.
The speaker icon on the ad indicates it was muted.
Are you still seeing the AnyClips video ads?
I am hearing audio when I am in HP site but don't know where it is coming from. Dale: I would report that to HP to see what is going on. I don't even see it on your hub now!
Unlike Dale, I was not seeing them but hearing them only while in HP. I even closed window to see if I had some pop up ad that sneaked in, but nothing. I had to shut HP down and reopen to get rid of whatever it was that i was hearing. Have not heard anything for a few hours now.

For a couple of days now whenever I am on any hub, all of a sudden a video ad starts playing. What is even more strange is when I have the volume low or silent, the ad comes on loud. I am not clicking on anything....

I search and search and search for the best music and videos. I would like to be able to "play" all my videos in one hub. For photos we can do this already. Why not link the videos...

At noon CDT today, http://hubpages.com/hub/Why-I-Rent--Not-Own was at 100! Not to be immodest, but it hit the magic number a couple of weeks ago too, but I didn't have the good sense to do a screen capture. ...
