Hidden Audio Advertising!?

Do I really have to turn my speakers off because of hidden (uncontrollable) ads that play on the page? There is nothing to indicate the ad or stop it or turn it off. That's completely annoying. :/

Thank you for reporting Jeff. Can you please let me know on what page does this ad show?

It was on on my photos page. Never saw it, only heard it. It went away when I closed the page. Very odd.

It's not hidden. it's so happen you unintentionally put your cursor over the ad and the video played even if your didn't play it. Most page ads are like that, not only in Pixoto.

That's the thing, Jasenka...... There was no visible ad, anywhere. Just audio. Only Pixoto open in browser. If it happens again, I will scour through the html code on the page and post it. Never happened before and hasn't since, yet very odd. Might remain a mystery until then.
