saavn.com vs adblock

Issue Saavn tries to show ads at various events, most of which are during song switches and before the song and a lot other events. But the issue happens when they can’t show an ad at any event.

So logic for displaying ads is very simple:

  • try displaying an ad
  • if not shown, retry

Recreate the issue > Install AdBlock plugin > Open Saavn.com > Play any playlist and wait > See the counter on the AdBlock go biking!

Solution Try implementing a single counter condition that when you are unable to display an ad for more than ‘n’ time, it will try to show ad later, maybe after one song finishes.
