Less ads on vods, please
I have no problem with ads usually and I understand why they're there, but it seems that a new feature rolled out that makes it so that an ad plays every 20 minutes when you're watching a vod.
I find this really annoying, as the ads are usually about 100% more loud than the vod so every 20 minutes I need to stop whatever I'm doing and turn down the volume on my computer (since I can't change the volume of the ad, which is not great either btw) and wait for the ad to finish so I can turn the volume back up.
Even if tedious, I'd be ok with this if it happened like every hour or so instead of 20 minutes. So... pretty please?
There’s an ad every 10min during a VOD and the best part is that on some platforms the VOD starts from the beginning after the ad so you can’t even continue to watch the VOD Absolutely horrendous

Interesting how after 2 years they still haven't addressed the ad volume issue, it's a really easy algorithm of taking the average volume of a vod and adjusting the ad volumes appropriately. Ads also still appear in random places in vods, ruining the experience. Ads are coming up like once every 10 minutes at least now. Absolutely terrible, they are abusing their oligopoly on the streaming market.
