I've been watching Extra Credits on PATV for a while now, but have been very disappointed lately. On at least three different days (the last three times I attempted to watch an Extra Credits video), the ad that plays first is not a video. I have seen two of these ads so far:
- a small expedia banner/button-looking-thing which sits offcenter on the black background. Bizzarely, the bubble has an X button, but pressing it does not seem to do anything but make said bubble disapper
- a larger, secretformula.com Coca-Cola ad with the title "do challenges unlock rewards"
In both instances, the "advertisement playing: XX seconds" is at the bottom of the player as normal. BUT, when it reaches zero, nothing happens. The ad never goes away, and the video never loads. Reloading the page does not change this behavior, and it's been going on for about a week now.
