The annoying ad on the bottom right...

Postby Lapse Of Reason » Sat Jun 25, 2011 5:34 pm

Weapon: Sword
It keeps playing evrytime I visit the seibertron.com main page. I've tried muting it, but the next time I visit it starts up again.

Any way to disable it?

They're working on it.

Trust me, I've been getting mad at it as well.

Yeah, it's annoying...

It was going off the other night on me and I couldn't figure out where the hell it was coming from! I had 4-5 tabs open, so I had to close them one-by-one, and then figure out where on the Seibs page it was coming from, then mute it.

Honestly, I haven't heard it since that day...

EDIT: I just looked at it and it says I'm "missing the plug-in VLC necessary to watch videos". Like I'm gonna download that, knowing what the result will be!

I'm lucky i'm using AOL & all I see is a "download button"

My guess is once you click the download button,you keep seeing the ad play.

since I refuse to click the download button. I don't see the ad play.

Actually, VLC's plugin won't harm you in any way. VLC is an open source, and I should mention...free, media player that rivals Windows Media Player. Actually, there are certain Blu-Ray formats it can decode and play without the extra expensive cost of a decoder (either hardware or software based). It's a pretty neat little program. I've used it in the past and it can be tweaked quite a bit.

Still, the ad must be a total pain in the butt if several people are having the same complaint. This is why I use Adblock. However, there's a downside to that as well, because it can block applets, flash, etc and there are pieces of websites I had never seen until using Chrome or IE.

Autobot032: I think he was referring to the fact that downloading it will bring back the annoying ad. Not that it would harm his computer.

Yep, that's what I was getting at.


Thanks for the info though, A32! I hadn't heard of the VLC plug-in before.
