Annoying video ad audio

Several times today I've gone into threads and after a short time a video ad has started automatically playing and hear the audio.

As I'm in Sweden, the ads are Swedish. I've noticed this on a few Swedish sites this happens but now they are branching out it seem.

I generally don't care about the ads, but when they come in the form or auto playing video and worse audio, that makes me angry as it is not a good for people who have limited data internet plans and you should not have unexpected sounds starting

I assume that this is a "google ads" or similar thing but maybe the forum can put limitations on what kind of ads are displayed?

Re: Annoying video ad audio

I'm assuming you have 'adblock' or something similar installed? The regular embedded ads; Solbian, Mantus, etc. show up, but not those targeted google ads that are selling you needle point accessories after Aunt Martha used your computer.
