    Since the HubPages page layout changed somewhat, I've noticed some ads appearing at the bottom which have unexpected and to me annoying audio. I put music to some of my own videos and the ad audio is competing. Has anyone else noticed this? Is there anything realistically that might be done about it?

      I haven't noticed it yet, but I hope I don't have any on my hubs. I think I have found the autoplay videos and I was afraid I'd accidentally clicked on my own ad. What's really bad about these is if you don't close your browser window after commenting on a hub you've read, it may start playing after you leave and then you have to look through your open windows to find the annoying audio and shut it down.

        I hope these auto-audio ads merely slipped through the cracks as I hate 'em!  I will have to loudly protest--surprise, surprise--if I find any of these obnoxious ads on my hubs!  sad

          They definitely slipped through the cracks! We do not allow auto-audio ads on HubPages.

          By the way, this is a duplicate thread, so those interested please follow (and add information to) this thread:

      I noticed this on a hub just recently. I has just started watching someone's video creation which had nice, soothing music accompanying it, but as the video started a woman's voice started advertising something and there was discordant music competing with the video's music. I couldn't figure out what was going on at first, and I almost left the hub because the mixture of sounds was so unpleasant.

    Seems to me that Google would really, really hate any sites that have auto-playing audio ads...
