Pause videos until you click on them.
Block autoplay in videos. No options.
- (2021-10-09) J S: Finance.yahoo.com this is the ONLY blocker that works! Not even ublock origin will grab and remove the frame. I'm guessing that this works because it simply lets it play for a few milliseconds and then hits the "off" button. Recommended. FIGHT back! Don't let Yahoo beat you.

In my 5 minutes of exhaustive testing it worked perfectly on several MSM "news" sites, completely silencing the annoying swarm of unwelcome auto-play video windows that pop up and ruin my browsing. The peaceful, quiet experience of scrolling and reading without having to shut down the pesky video windows was magical!

- (2021-05-27) Chris Carter: Simple and does what I needed. I tend to have multiple windows open in Chrome with lots of YouTube videos queued up to watch…eventually, and every time I restarted my Mac or Chrome, all the YouTube videos in the active tabs of the various windows would all fire off and start playing and I'd have to go chase them down and manually pause them. This extension did the trick and now they open up paused and silent!

- (2021-02-01) Old Balls: Finally found a blocker that keeps websites from stealing bandwidth (I have data caps).
- (2021-01-27) Sigurður Jónas Eggertsson: Did not block video powered by www.anyclip.com on a site that was auto playing videos.
- (2021-01-17) Beth Moursund: I picked this one from the bunches of autoplay blockers because I liked the name. :) It works. 'Nuff said.
- (2021-01-04) Chuck Summers: Does what I want it to do. thanks. I mainly want it for videos on pages such as fox or cnn or other fake news sites like that. You cant get through an article without ten videos playing as you scroll down to read. This stops almost all of them, usually the first one, the main one, gets through but the rest stop as you scroll.

- (2020-03-05) Hosa: does not always work... works when i open a new youtube video does not work when i refresh the page 4 some reason
- (2020-01-30) prm1394: Wow! seems to work perfectly. Going test it a little more, works great on Youtube. Thanks!
