Yet another Ad issue (autoplaying audio and video)

I'm starting a new thread because this is NOT about ads redirecting you to other sites.
This IS about ads that keep you on forum dot dvdtalk dot com, but suddenly start playing audio and video. I took a screencap of one as it started playing:


What is this bullshit? I've seen ads that just play video/animations, with the audio muted. Annoying, yes, but not a big deal. But these ads? Ads that suddenly start playing audio and video without clicking on them, or hovering over them, or anything?! Fuck all that. That's garbage-tier bullshit on par with what's going on in the other thread about getting redirected.

If you don't want users using adblockers, don't utilize ads like this.

This is happening for me on the desktop version of the site, using Chrome, on both Windows 7 and Windows 10, not that any of that should even matter.

edit: and to be clear, it's not EVERY ad that's doing this. Probably 1 in every 15 or 20. Banner ads shouldn't play audio, ever. Make it stop.

Yeah, this is new and NOT COOL! I don't mind ads on the site, but when they start talking (loudly), then we have a real problem on our hands.

Good to know it wasn't just me!
That said, it only happened about 10 times for me... haven't seen it since. Hopefully it stays that way.
