    If there's one thing that really :censored: me off when browsing it's videos that autoplay, especially with audio. :mad:

    Give it a click, it pauses it. I'm going to feedback the request for an option to mute it on load for next year.
    Meanwhile I've timed the video so it displays only during the show time so there should be something of interest to everyone at some point during the day. So hopefully it's more of a benefit than not.

    And then every time you leave a thread & go back to the list the damn thing loads again. Thanks for taking the time to reply but I'm out until it's gone. Can you advise when that will be?

    Edit
    From Panasonic's site that would appear to be Monday evening?

    A flash video that is autoplaying when you enter this & other forums. Maybe you have flash disabled?

    Sorry I mean, is it financial advice or what? :p

    I've never seen a video pop-up - how ghastly.

    Same here.

    Think I will give avforum a miss for a few days until IFA is over and I don't have to put up with this constant annoying intrusion seemingly every time I visit a different part of the forum.
    Once. Fair enough.
    But every time I visit or revisit a different forum? No thanks.

    Thank god i use flash block!

    I did have it pop up here at work but a quick install of flash block on FF sorted it out for me :)

    Really hate adverts like this.

    It's intended to be more informative than advert. Thanks for the feedback. This is the first time we've tried a live feed from a technology event and I think it's interesting.
    Monday our own Phil Hinton is talking about AVForums.
    In future I think we should have an opt out method for the current session.
    The event finishes Monday early afternoon.

    It's not what it is - advert or information - it is the way it behaves.

    I don't like something playing automatically with sound that constantly keeps starting afresh every time you visit a new forum. I don't need to hear it ten times in ten minutes.
    Can't you fix it so that once you have played it for me, it doesnt try to play it again, over and over and over?

    As it is. I have started using the avforums iPad app instead as that is free from such things.

    It's only a small number of forums but I appreciate the feedback.
