Unable to remember what that particular advert was from earlier today however, you are correct it is currently blocking video ads.
Thanks for the follow up.

If you try to watch a game through ESPN MLB Gamecast, e.g. http://www.espn.com/mlb/gamecast?gameId=370913105, the site tries to load a 30 second ad. The video gets blocked and doesn't play, but the ad never actually clears and thus you can never see the content underneath. Instead it just says "Advertisement: Gamecast will continue in..." and hangs there. Please note you can only see the behavior while a game is live, not after it ends. Screenshot here.

Oh, I should also mention that this happens with 3 different browsers, and if I whitelist Gamecast the video plays normally and the ad clears.

No issue for me (using uBo adblocker).
What adblocker (and version) are you using and what filter lists ? Also, what browser (version) ?

Is this mean there is an issue using AdBlock or Adblock Plus?

Thanks.
