Say Goodbye to Annoying Popups and Unwanted Video Pauses




Suppose you've ever been deep into an educational video only to have your focus shattered by an unexpected popup or an abrupt video pause when you switch tabs. In that case, you know how frustrating the online learning experience can be. But worry not, dear reader, for today, we bring you a solution that promises to enhance your learning journey on platforms like MedMasterTH.


Understanding the Culprits

Before we dive into the solution, let's understand the issue at hand. Many educational websites use engagement tactics like popups or auto-pausing videos when you're not actively on their tab. While these features aim to keep you focused, they can sometimes detract from the learning experience, especially if you're multitasking or referencing other materials.


Enter Tampermonkey

Tampermonkey is a powerful browser extension that allows you to run your own JavaScript on any website, giving you control over your browsing experience. With a few lines of code, we can eliminate those pesky popups and ensure our videos continue playing in the background, uninterrupted.


The Magic Scripts

We've crafted three Tampermonkey scripts to address these issues:


1. Removing Annoying Popups on the Video Tab Out

This script hides popups that appear when you switch tabs during video playback. It waits for the page to load and then executes a function to remove any popups identified by its CSS class.



2. Detect and Prevent Popup Before It Shows

To preemptively stop popups, this script monitors changes to the webpage and removes any newly added popups before they can interrupt your viewing.



3. Advanced Video Play Control

Lastly, to keep your video playing even when you click away (but allow manual pausing), this script cleverly overrides the video's pause function, only permitting pauses initiated by you, the user.



Implementing the Solution

To use these scripts:

  1. Install the Tampermonkey extension for your browser.

  2. Create a new script for each code snippet above.

  3. Tailor the @match directive to the specific website you wish to apply the script to, if necessary.

  4. Save and enable the scripts in Tampermonkey.

Conclusion

With these scripts, you're now equipped to tackle the common distractions of popups and video auto-pauses, making your online learning experience smoother and more enjoyable. Remember, while these scripts offer a workaround, always consider website policies and copyright laws when using custom scripts.

We hope this guide empowers you to take control of your learning environment. Happy learning!
