reddit video embedding

Post by LordMortis »

Is there a way to turn the reddit embedded video links autoplay off? And why does it default to being turned on?

Sorry for my ignorance and to ask for change. I just hate being blindsided by self playing video.

This is the post in particular that keeps auto playing every time I open the page

Ya I hate hearing that each time that thread loads. I figure Id just let it go until we were off the page.

The following guide from ghacks.net walks you through the process of fixing such annoyances:

How to stop auto playing videos
"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." -- Daniel Webster

I just tried blocking autoplay for OO. We'll see if it works. Thanks for the link.

Edit: Nope. I'll trying going to reddit and blocking them...
