Every time I pause the video I get an AD saying my device is infected and if I accidentally click it, it tells me I have been looking at adult websites and to "click here" to fix it. Please remove these garbage ADs that ruin a good app.

What's the exact name of the ad? That or post a screenshot. This way the developer can blacklist it.

Did you send report to mxvideoplayer@gmail.com? If so, it looks like not delivered yet. Please sync/refresh your email client. Thank you.

Thank you, I got it.
One more question is; Does the report sent while malware ad. is showed up? And then it is actually from the Google ad. network.

No it wasn't sent while it was up. I'll try to trigger it to get it to appear again for you and if I can, then I will send another email.

Actually I filtered out all kind of "vaccine" ad. because many malware disguise a vaccine. It will be even better if you do not see this ad again
Thank you.
