I have never encountered any video ads on this site, but I do run Ad Block.

Edited to add: I just logged out and turned off ad block and still get no videos.

screen shot

I am attaching a screen shot of what I am talking about. I have tested this on Chrome, and Firefox and both show looping videos. Of course screen print to a Word Doc will not show a video in progress so what you see is a still shot. Any browser can be configured in many different ways so perhaps this is a configuration issue. Also web site hosts can force users to view ads regardless of popup (Ad) blockers, case in point Google owns Yahoo and they have specific Ad policies if you choose to use them. I appreciate all of your comments.

It's nothing to do with this site. It is due to the places you visit online and the boxes you choose to click on.

Nomad, part of what you say is correct but some of the videos have nothing to do with where I have browsed, clearing all browsing data including cookies does not appear to help, thanks for the thought though.

What browser were you using when you took the screen shot?
It does not look like Chrome or Firefox and I do not see the Ad Block icon that is typically displayed???

I see a few unobtrusive ads or links on the webpage, but I don't ever recall pop-ups, video, or sound. Something has invaded your computer from another source, I suspect.

I've never had any videos pop up, not one. I use FireFox with the uBlock Origin popup blocker. I never have any popup problems of any kind.

No video ads for me. But I use https://adblockplus.org/ and never have ads on my Youtube videos or other stuff like you are mentioning.
