Pre roll ad and video problem

  • 6
  • Share

Hey,

So starting in the last couple of days I have found that the pre roll ads on the videos run, and the audio for the requested video comes up while the ad is still running, and then, no video at all. This seems to be since (in Canada) the Fido ads have come up. This problem occurs in both Firefox and Safari under OS X 10.8.

Thanks.

  1. That's definitely a new one. It's unique to a particular ad then?

      So it seems yes.

        I just checked some videos using a US proxy, so I got US ads, and no problem, so yeah it seems to be the Fido ad.

          Having the same issue, and have for weeks. I'm also in Canada. Started with the Fido ads now happening with some others... I've resorted to watching Sepertaster on YouTube instead.

            It was gone for a while, but now that those damned Fido ads are back, I am back to getting the bug. Well, off to youtube I guess.

        2. Thanks for making a note of this. I've reported the ad and hope it will be yanked soon. Sorry, all Canadians!
