    Sorry, I couldn't understand your previous post enough to help. What is the problem when you are trying to solve the captcha? If you post the picture of it here we could try and help you solve it by telling you which ones to press.

    Engage.tv is under the Discover tab and then AscendMedia (down the left hand side). There are a few you can choose from but I always go for the App Trailers one. It can sometimes take a couple of refeshers/video skips to get the first unskippable advert to play but then they should play after every video. You get 1SB for every 6 adverts you watch and it ticks off the Discover tick. You can earn unlimited SBs every day through Engage.tv and it can be quite good to leave running in the background. You do have to be on the tab for it to work though so it's best to open it in another browser to the one you are using if you want to do something else on the internet at the same time.

    I can do all on the 'To Do' list except for the Daily discover. Any tips on getting that one ticked off on a daily basis?

    With engage me, when should you see the first ad? I have refreshed about 10 times and every time the app trailer comes up first. Should an ad be before or after the first trailer?

    Ad should come before the trailer. Are you playing videos on other tabs? Might be worth trying without. Otherwise, just try again later.

    You don't need to have an ad appear first, I open it and leave it running, some people like to keep refreshing until they get an ad first.

    I don't know if there is a rule to the first ad, I suspect it's random and then they appear after every 6 videos.

    To summarise, I never bother to check when the first ad appears, I open Engage Me and leave it running, I always earn from it.

    Ah ok, so two errors, yes I had a watch video playing as well and I thought an ad came after every video so have been sitting refreshing it waiting for one to appear! Will leave it running for a bit and see what happens. Thanks all!

    Yes, but it only credited automatically the first time. After that I have to put in a ticket with screen shot, so only do it if I badly need the points.

    I think we get a bit hung up on trying to complete the To Do List. Yes, it brings an extra few points, but often only a couple.
    So, rather than fret about EngageMeTV, if I get no ad in 5/6 refreshes, I generally just let Watch play by itself. If it does crash you don't lose the ticks for the vids you've watched, and can just refresh/restart that set.

    For me, an ad does appear after every video (except maybe once or twice a week when I will have 2 videos in a row). I normally either skip videos until I get an ad (can take 5 or 6 the first time) or refresh until I get one. Some days it can take about a minute of doing this before the first ad appears but then I get one for one every time. I guess you could just let it play in the hope that one will appear but I like to see the first one to know it's working.
