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.

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...
