    Hey Staff,

    I'm reporting a "KeepFit" auto run with sound at the bottom of one of my hubs.

    The picture below is a snapshot of it running. It started on it's own.

    The above video is about the Nintendo Wii - Sony Playstation- it's very long video.

    Just ran across it again on a different hub. It started out with a Covergirl ad.

    This video continues to run on and on. It sometimes starts off with a different ad announcement. Again ran into it on another hub, in the bottom location.

    I surely do hope they see this soon and take care of it.  I really dislike Auto-Run ads! -- sorry you're facing this.

      I hope so too. I don't like anymore than the next person.

    Hi Cagsil,

    Can you send the URLs to the Hubs you saw the ads on? These ads are against our ad policy, but it will be easier to identify which network they are being served by with the exact page URL, ad location, screenshot (which you provided), and (ideally) , a firebug report screenshot of the ad call. Can you also please email all screenshots to

      Thank you Marina. I will do so next I run into the problem. So far today I've not had any issues with auto-run videos on my hubs. However, the ad placement is the bottom ad on the page. It occurred on three different hubs, which I'm unsure at this time.

      I'm presently still advertising my hubs today and should I run across the problem, then I will email you the hub links, location on hub and a screenshot of the ads. However, the screenshots I've posted in this thread were taken from each hub as they occurred yesterday. The ads each started off differently, advertising a different product each time and continued to run for several minutes, while I took the snapshots of the page and transferred them snapshot to my computer.

      @Aficionada- thank you for bumping this. Much appreciated. smile

      I clicked on this hub and a video started playing, very annoying! No one will read anything with these distracting videos at the bottom of the hub. … ecame-LOVE

      I just clicked again and it's gone. It was a VideoJug video (I also saw one yesterday on another hub) advertising Sony Playstation.

    Cagsil, I'm bumping this, if you're checking the forums but haven't seen it yet.

    I didn't run into any problems today though. I found it odd, but glad I didn't.
