Hello,

I live in France and there's a TV channel website that allows you to watch past series/movies/programs etc. BUT you MUST, and I want to emphasize MUST, watch the 60-second ads at the beginning of the video. There's no way you can skip the ad. If you change tabs, windows or even click on "Start" on Windows, the ad automatically pauses itself until you go back to the page where the ad is patiently waiting for you ><

Is there a turn around? There must be something that indicates the browser that the window is not being "active". How can I trick it?

I'm suspecting this kind of pratice will be more and more common, and I'm thinking of Youtube that already forces its users to watch the videos on Android (you cannot lock the screen).

Thanks!

Hello :)

You can try this add-on for FireFox: http://adblockvideo.com download the .XPI file, then drag it into FireFox, install the add-on, then re-start FireFox.

Also, Google "privoxy" - works well. No time to explain setup, as quite involved.
