Hi guys.
I have a small mproblem, more an annoyance.
On new site, NZ Hearld & Stuff idems tend to have videos.
I get annoyed that when I'm reading the vedio starts up.
You know of an app that can stop that?
Thanks,
Ian.

In order to change your Firefox Configuration please do the following:

In the address bar, type about:config and press the Enter key.
The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
Click I accept the risk! to continue to the about:config page.

Search for media.autoplay.enabled and set to false.

what browser are you using . that matters for the fix to stop autoplay .
some of the vids on the side are adverts , so they need an ablocker like ublock or adware .

I have tried this Wainui. It doesn't work, and just about all commenters in the link had it fail for them too. I saw somewhere that Google are working on a solution, but whether this is for the Chrome OS or the Chrome browser I don't know. Does anyone have any further information as this seems to be a world-wide piss-off.

The current version is Version 68.0.3440.75 (Official Build) (64-bit) As from V66 the auto run block was meant to be installed.

Some sites you still cant block, while others work well.

Yes, version is latest as you note. But I cannot locate any setting which blocks auto-run.
