Anyone noticed the mag dailies playing up? For the past few days Prima and Good Housekeeping, in particular, have been playing videos even though I have my Mobile User Agent extension on.

    Same here.
    Some of the vids dont even load first time and I have to keep refreshing.
    Its been happening every week or so for a day or two then goes back to no vids. They must be tinkering with them.
    Mag Dailies taking ages to do:(
  • this has been happening to me for ages, and you need to watch the flaming things too, if you go onto another tab they pause

    The videos stop playing if you don't stay on the page too! They are a nightmare. Has anyone tried using an adblocker extension again? An adblocker used to work. There must be some way of beating the damn videos!

    Thought it was a bit better to get those stupid questions instead of the videos today. Except after the questions I got the video AS WELL. The same ruddy video which I had to watch every time. I am really over seeing that woman suggestively stuff ferroro rocher down her gullet...
    My puter is so slow at running 2 browsers I cba so I did some sewing instead.

  • I use Chrome and for every page that has a video playing, I just drag out the tabs individually so that they become their own windows. Almost all the videos will still continue to play in all the windows at the same time even if the windows aren't active. I haven't tested this in other browsers though.

    I use chrome too - how do you drag out tabs?

    Hover your cursor on the tab, drag it away from the tab bar and release.
