autoplay on videos

Post by brownjeans » August 19th, 2014, 1:06 pm

Today, for whatever reason, all posted youtube videos are autoplaying as soon as the thread with the videos is loaded. This is super annoying. I don't know if it's something on my end or something that's changed with the message board. Please advise.

treesap mentioned this to me last night as well but I haven't been able to replicate it. He logged out of YouTube and restarted his browser and it stopped doing it. I think it may be some changes happening to YouTube but nothing has changed on our end.

Chrome has a Flashcontrol plugin that disables autoplay on Youtube and other flash player videos.

I've had it on for months, so I haven't experienced BJ's problem but it's sure helped with the autoplay ads on a lot of other sites.
