[Ads] Video Ads for slow Connection

I don't really mind all the ads, Spotify is mostly used as a free service and they got to make money from somewhere, I can understand that. The only real problem that hinders me from the music streaming are the video ads. I don't have the best connection. Most of the time for my household, the connection speed is way below par. It is good enough to stream audio files, so music and auditory ads are fine.

 

But when a video ads wants to start streaming, my connection speed cannot handle it. An ad that is about 30 seconds, might take up to 3 minutes of a stuttering video. It isn't very pleasant. I'm not saying it is necessesary to get rid of them, but to at least have saved versions of the ads on my computer so whenever they do play, it isn't being a parasite on my connection and stutter every half a second upon playing.

I'm experiencing the same. I don't have any problems with connection until a video ad comes up. Takes about 5 minutes for a 30 seconds ad.

OK I think you understand the problem. You know its not working. Now act. Stop these videos already.
