CHOW video issues, overplay

I'm not sure if this issue has been reported but when I played a CHOW video this morning and then selected another video to watch the autoplay for the video attached to my 1st choice continues to play immediately on top of my 2nd choice. Essentially, two audio/videos running at the same time.

  1. We've seen this happen with a few broken ads, but this is the first we've heard of two "real" videos colliding. Are you able to reproduce the problem, or was it a fluke?

    And to be sure I'm clear on the circumstances- you're saying the autoplay moved to the next video in the list at the same time that you clicked on a different video?

      Let's see if I can help with a better explanation. I played the college intern video and when the piece ended I clicked on a CHOW Tip to watch that. The next video that plays after the intern piece started running while I was watching the Tip. I heard the 2nd video ad playing over the video Tip. It's not the first time I've noticed this, just the 1st time I've reported it. The odd thing was I didn't have two separate screens running and only one browser. The audio from the 1st link was the part overplaying the second link.

        Hrm. And it was specifically audio from an ad that was playing over, or was it audio from the extra video itself?

          I clicked out of the link altogether to stop the issue so I didn't listen long enuf to know if the audio issue continued after the ad. Sorry Engr.
