After the last update videos started playing automatically again. How do I get them to only play when I click them?

I already have about:config media.autoplay.enabled toggled to false. The one add-on I found isn't compatible with Firefox Quantum.

How can I stop videos from starting automatically when I load a page?

hi, in firefox 63 the autoplay preferences are reorganised in preparation for this feature shipping out of the box in one of the upcoming versions. in about:config you can set media.autoplay.default to 1 in order to block automatic playback on all pages or set it to 2 to decide on a per domain basis.
