Block HTML 5 video autoplay (Chrome)

Disable videoMonday 2nd January 2017

Popular news sites are slowly moving from using embedded Flash videos to HTML5 videos, which is a good thing – except all my work setting up browsers to prevent the autoplay of Flash videos is slowly unravelling.

Install the Chrome extension below to prevent embedded HTML5 videos from autoplaying. The videos still load, and are available to play if you click the Play button, but they won’t play automatically.

Install the Disable HTML5 Autoplay extension (Chrome) >>>
