Prevents YouTube HTML5 and Flash players from auto-buffering (auto-playing) videos

Image from store YouTube™ No Buffer (Stop Auto-playing)
Description from store This extension stops YouTube HTML5 and Flash players from auto-buffering videos. Using this add-on (extension) you can save bandwidth and also prevent YouTube on multiple tabs from buffering media simultaneously. You will have to click on the player to allow buffering of the media files. Once a player is buffered, it can play multiple tracks. There is no need to activate the player on each new track (so you can easily watch playlists for instance). Features: 1. Stop auto-playing on "/watch?v=" pages 2. Stop auto-playing on "/user/" pages 3. Stop auto-playing on "/channel/" pages 4. Stop auto-playing on embedded YouTube players. 5. Supports YouTube's new Material Design (as of version 0.2.2) Notes: 1. As of version 0.2.4, this extension is compatible with YouTube's material design 2. As of version 0.2.5, this extension is not working on the old non-material design 3. If you would like the extension to not stop buffering when switching back and forth to the mini-player ("i" keyword on YouTube pages), go to the options page and check "Do not stop the player if the player is already playing" option. 4. This extension is compatible with ad-blocker extensions operating on YouTube pages.

  • (2021-07-03) AnotherLover: Fixing the broken universe one app at a time. THANK YOU!!!
  • (2021-06-23) Masked Guy: There's still autoplay in playlists.
  • (2021-04-16) Carlos Vaya: It simply does NOT work! So be careful if using limited data and think you are safer! ...helpful hint! Click pause, then click near end of vid! And read/copy what you need with minimal buffering... but obviously a little data will still be wasted.
  • (2021-03-02) Roman Radulov: Super!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • (2020-11-22) A K.: Great idea, this extension is badly needed, autoplay so often ruins the video experience. When I watch a YouTube video I let it play once through first so it is fully buffered, because my connection isn't great (Australian NBN = rubbish), so otherwise the video will stop repeatedly to buffer while watching... but that's pointless when the video is on a playlist, because it will just continue to the next video, and when I go back to the one I wanted to watch, it will again stop repeatedly to buffer. @#[email protected]%#U. I can't believe Google doesn't have an "auto-play off" setting for playlists. So I got very excited when I saw there was an extension to kill autoplay. Unfortunately it doesn't work, at least in my Chrome browser. Does anyone know if it works in other browsers? If so I might just get rid of Chrome. I just don't want to waste time installing & trying out different browser if it just simply doesn't work on any

  • (2020-03-30) Ali Saleh: EDIT: Thanks. The new update works great again.
  • (2020-03-28) Rainbow Warrior Princess: ***FIXED!*** Good, but when the video played for some seconds and the page is reloaded, the video plays for 1 second before stopping the video. ***FIXED!*** Pause option addionally added instead of only stopping feature and pauses/stops even playlists!
  • (2020-03-27) Ali Saleh: It was working fine for a long time but has recently stopped working :(

  • (2020-03-13) Serwusiak: Jakiś dziwny syf - nie polecam
  • (2020-03-04) Gabor R: It works as of today with current version of Chrome. Finally videos do not pre-buffer and play when you activate the tab.
  • (2020-02-03) Majengo Ss Jamal: I have been using this app for so long, it works properly. No comment for me.
  • (2019-12-02) Алексей Мишарин: У меня в Google Chrome BETA из-под Windows 10 плагин препятствует кэшированию в начале, при первом открытии видеоролика на YouTube. После первого просмотра снова работает как обычно, то есть, как было ДО установки плагина.
  • (2019-10-24) Ali Saleh: Works great on the latest version of Chromium. Thank you!
  • (2019-10-16) Kevin Brockman: I wanted something to stop autoplay on youtube but not stop playlists as an alternative to magic actions. This did that.
  • (2019-08-31) Selin Arkas: Thank You.
  • (2019-08-01) Steffon: Does not work. It has one job that it fails to accomplish. Uninstalled just like the other one. 8/1/19
  • (2019-06-12) EMRAH: Güzel eklenti, tamda aradığım eklenti diyebilirim. Lakin ilk videolarda :" Tarayıcı şuanda mevcut video biçimlerinin hiçbirini tanımıyor." diye uyarı veriyor. Sayfayı yenilemediğin sürece video başlamıyor. Bir sonraki videoda bunu yapmıyor ama youtube sekmentini kapatıp tekrar açınca yine yeni videoda yapıyor. Bu düzeltilirse güzel olur. its very good addition but it has a problem. when you open the youtubes video first time you see your browser doesnt recognize any video format so you need to push f5 than you can see video. i hope you fix this problem.
