Auto playing videos – Oh how I hate thee
I am seriously getting annoyed with auto playing videos on websites these days. It feels like a plague that is spreading quickly through the internet.
Now in the context of video sharing services like YouTube, I really don’t have a problem with adverts that start playing before a video.
But on a flipping newspaper or magazine website? Come on. That just makes me navigate away from the page and the brand.
Now I know web pages are amazing things and are by their nature multi media experiences, but I think there is a time and a place for these things.
What say the rest of you?
Oh and I just needed to get this off my chest. I feel better now and can relax for the rest of the day. ;)
