I've had some issues with unofficial dedicated servers when creating Left 4 Dead 2 games. Over the weekend when creating a game my friends and I would keep getting the same dedicated server which is configured to show a home page which appears to be designed to test my patience.
The home page continuously plays advertising videos on the connected screen, which don't stop when you close that view because, well, you might want to press 'h' and see that screen again. The designer of said page didn't see the need to allow the video to be stopped, or paused for longer than a few seconds.
The videos are too loud, like most advertising, and tend to make the L4D2 client struggle slightly, even crashing the client a couple of times. It pretty much renders the game unplayable for me. Apart from the havok caused by the adverts, the server itself appears to be otherwise playable.
Is there any means to disable the playing of videos in the L4D2 client, or even disabling the home page view altogether?
