Hi,

I am hoping someone could help me out with an issue I am having. When I open some web pages, when there is a video to play at the top of the page and then the article below I begin to scroll down the page to read the article. When i do this, the video will appear on the right hand side of the page when i scroll down the video follows me. It is very distracting as it covers up some of the words I am trying to read. Is there a way to solve this issue?

Here is an example of what i am referring to http://boston.cbslocal.com/2018/04/11/p ... y-workout/

Thx

There was quite a discussion about those annoying floating videos (AKA "sticky videos" or "sticky video player") here:

So far, there's no quick fix or "fix-all" solution, but there are a few things you can try.
