Autoplay

I have autoplay turned off. This should apply to ALL YouTube audiovisual webpages.

However some webpages don't have the autoplay option. The selection automatically plays the next selection indicated. I don't want that.

How would I get NO autoplay to apply to all YouTube audiovisual webpages?

What settings are you using to block autoplay ?

You can look at these prefs on the the about:config page to see what settings work for you.

  • media.autoplay.default = 5 [0:allow;1:blockAudible;2:Prompt;5:blockAll]
  • media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2
  • media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages = false
  • media.autoplay.block-event.enabled = true

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
