    What gives with the video in the lower right of screen

    So recently I keep getting a video in the lower right corner of my screen. It comes up whenever I go to another page. I’ve put up with the first post having half of any video posted being cut on half but this is getting to be a bit much.

    Anyone else having this problem or is it time to move on? Hate to do that since there is too much good no,here but if I can’t see it it becomes pointless.

    Just curious.

    Hope it will help.
    Edit: I am late.

    Well, as I said, I don't own one and I am not familiar with Safari Browser(which I suppose is what your using),but it looks like an ad.
    Try installing AdBlock Plus addon for Safari https://adblockplus.org/en/ad-blocker-safari
    Edit:You can also try installing another web browser eg Firefox.

    Yeah, I had the same thing happen when I used my Window$ computer. This little (2"x2") video would just start running. I didn't pay it much attention at first. When I did watch, I have no clue what is was for. Just like watching someone on youtube video their car engine. Weird.

    Right now I am on my regular Linux (Mint 17.3) computer and there is no video in the corner. Must be a micro$oft/apple hack.

    Well, Adblock got rid of the annoying video that would play in the lower corner of the screen. I’ll just have to hope nothing good ever happens on the right side of any videos that people post on here.

    Thanks for the help.

    I use an iPad on occasion. For YouTube videos, I always go straight to the YouTube App to play the videos as they are always cut off on the right side on here. I never bothered to ask Admin about it, but you could do so in the Site Help and Support section.

    Sometimes one needs to make the TW Forum page full screen in order for linked videos to play without their right side being trimmed, or just go to Youtube as previously stated.

    However original complaint sounds like adware, not exactly malware; however another example of how internet is being corrupted into an intrusive marketing device without our consent.. ADBLOCKER usually works but another free program to run parallel is MALWAREBYTES.

    I believe the issue is not unique to this forum. A call to Apple tech support can often result in a good diagnosis and hold your hand through a repair, or correction, process
