I hate this. I don't want these videos popping up on the page! I'll just stop using this website if there isn't a fix for it soon.

+1 from here, too.

 

I'm not always logged in and autoplaying videos are the reason an ad blocker is the first thing i install along with a browser.

Has anyone figured out a way to stop them from popping up yet?

Sorry for thread-necro, but I enabled my AdBlocker again to block this damn video. Banners are ok imo, this video isn't, just letting you know.

seriously, they're working on it for 3 month? What is the problem to disable that stupid overlay video? It's as hard work as for me to disable my adblock again. But i don't until they don't do this hard work. It's so easy: no annoying overlay video on nexus = no adblock by me.

Necro again, but it's now 5 months and it still hasn't been remedied.

 

Wouldn't even care about it being a video if it didn't follow my screen and force me to close it each time as it is an obstruction. It also doesn't even make sense to have videos showcasing mods the nexus as the ads. If I cared about a pistol mod for Fallout 4, I'd be on that page. These ads don't even support the platform, and we're still bothered for it.

 

It's daft.

Same here.... Usually Nexus is one of the very few sites I turn my adblock off. Nexus is important to me and what they provide is awesome, but this unbelievable annoying video add (which only shows mods on this site anyway) really goes on my nerves. Wouldn't mind if it would pop up only once, but please not every single f§/("§ time I load a page or make any action... I activate my adblock until this is gone, real sorry for that :sad:

 

(btw, wouldn't even mind if it stays always on the bottom, but the annoying part is that it attached itself to the lower right of the screen and follows you when you scroll, that's BS).

All sites that I use regularly are white-listed on adblock but Nexus is no longer one of them. I have very limited data on my internet and I don't need auto play videos.

 

EDIT - When I turned ads off I noticed I could just pay $2 to get rid of ads on the site so that's what I did. We good now?
