Yeah, yeah, same with pop-ups advertisers are necessary for the funding of our beloved websites. They come they with new ways on irritating us. Barging in on our screens for a couple of seconds is already enough distraction. However, not being able to skip them is revolving.
The worst case scenario of unskippable Video Ads is the possibility of that being able to watch the intended video. Since the video ad is overlapping, the media player cannot load anymore why the user was on that link on the first place.
This happened to me when I was about to watch an episode of On The Wings of Love on iwantv.com.ph. I was not able to watch that episode because the Promil commercial barged in and the actual video was not able to load up. It wasted about 15 minutes of my life.
I understand that the advertisers have their contracts signed as agreed with the site. However, as their potential costumers, we have planted hate towards that product. They became the reason of our hindered enjoyment
I hope they will be contented to improve their SEO (Search Engine Optimization status) only just a few as five seconds on our screens. Anyway, they will get a bonus view if the user leaves his/her computer screen for a while.
STOP THESE ADS.
