Sorry but the Mitsubishi heatpump video ad which keeps expanding into the top left corner of my browser most times when I reload a page is becoming so obnoxious and annoying ad blocker is being seriously considered.

video ads can be annoying... not very user friendly or good for user experience.

I use a 1440p display and regularly have my chrome browser 'snapped' to 50% of the screen.

 

Occasionally the video ads will expand on their own with my mouse cursor going anywhere near it.

freitasm:

 

Do you have a small display? Perhaps consider a subscription instead?

 

 

This is a work display at 1440 x 900 so yes a small display I guess.

 

Click to see full size

 

 

 

The image I have uploaded is when the video expands to full size, when it first pops it it's probably 1/6 size. Sorry I can't get the ad to pop up anymore to show initial size.

We hide ads when the window is less than 1000 pixels. Hide, not remove. Some Browsers don't like it and will load a block on the top corner.

On larger widths the ads load as usual but they only expand if you leave the mouse pointer hovering over the add longer than three seconds.
