Why am I now seeing this annoying video at bottom of my screen when I am on my Tracker page? It is People news videos, and there is NO 'X' to get it off the screen !

The People video ad can be minimized to the bottom of the screen by clicking the ^ on the left side of the video player. This will collapse it into a bar ad instead.

Any chance you could charge a fee to not see ads?  I don't have a problem paying $9.99 per year to not see ads on Microsoft Solitare; your website is worth paying to not see ads.  Don't believe me, ask your audience.  You could start a contest for a free year to stir interest.  All of those ads really slow down your site.  Here's what annoys me, if I want to shop, I go to E-Bay or Amazon.  When I'm at your site, I'm not shopping, but all the stuff I just looked at on E-Bay and Amazon keeps floating by.  Do those ad people really think I am going to buy something when I visit YOUR site?  And now this stupid bar at the bottom, just more clutter you need to train yourself to ignore, only to have it moved or reshaped on a regular basis.  I would love to be the first to sign up!

So not impressed with the video box at the bottom of my screen. You really do need to make that go away. It is not a benefit to this site what so ever and is getting in the way of using the site.

Late this afternoon or early evening these annoying videos started to play on my tracking page.  I did not request them, nor do i want them.  Please either get rid of them or give me the option to hide and mute them.  I detest ads.

I actually paid Sidereel, or donated, however you want to call that, to NOT have ads on my account/pages/whathaveyou. I was informed I would not see ads. And this morning, here's this media widget for People and other media in a black pop up on the bottom of my tracker. Very frustrating. If I want to see People or other gossip/sensationalist outlets, I will go to their sites. I've been tracking with Sidereel for almost a decade. This is the type of thing that will send me packing.... -_-

Hi Swayyde! Thanks so much for supporting SideReel. Unfortunately the ads-free version of SideReel is app-specific, but we totally understand your frustration. We're taking your feedback into consideration and are working to compromise! Thanks for your loyalty and your honest feedback.

Not to mention it's slowing down my tracker from loading. 
I had to adblock it. And it's still slowing down the page because, essentially, it's still there if not for the adblocker that simply keeps me from seeing it.
