The Day In Online Video News And Views 6th November 2013

It's been less than a week since Twitter enabled in-stream previews for video clips and images but the internet hasn't stopped moaning about it since. Personally, I love the new feature but for those who really cannot stand it, AdBlock Plus, that enemy of the online ad, has added a new filter which removes the previews for anyone that installs it. Apparently you can block them via your iOS or Android app if you're on your mobile, but there's no such off switch for the web so Adblock Plus have seen a gap in the market and jumped right in.

Elsewhere, Netflix have won a legal case brought against them for failing to carry a particular film for distribution. The $10 Million lawsuit, filed by filmmaker T. Allen Chey, was dismissed by a Californian court earlier this week. Chey had accused the VoD company of damaging his reputation and causing financial hardship by refusing to carry the film, "Suing The Devil", whilst also putting the film on the site with a "save" button against it. These stories and more in our review of the day in online video.
