  • (2019-06-03) Mad Artz Graphics: Just found out the culprit of my high data consumption on chrome and firefox. It's Facebook Newsfeed's Videos! Hey, before you argue. I've tracked down this statistics via NetBalancer Data Manager and guess what? Facebook eats my 2GB in just a matter of 1 day on an idled news feed. Not exactly, the main culprit are those Facebook lives and videos being uploaded by streamers and pages. Although my Auto-play is OFF. It's a proof that Facebook videos are automatically eating data, being played or not. Thanks Video Blocker Plus. I hope this app gather more user as it helped me solve my big problem. I won't bother this bandwidth hogging videos on Facebook anymore consuming my metered connection on a regular basis.
  • (2019-02-19) john gerity: Doesn't seem to be a way to control what it blocks. It just blocks all video. And I think audio sometimes plays anyway, which is the only reason I wanted to get this. If you want to block ALL videos ALWAYS, than this may work for you, but if you only want to block Facebook videos, good freakin' luck.
  • (2018-11-04) George K: Works! Thank you for this
  • (2017-10-27) Pamela Toles: I think a Trojan is attached to this thing. After I downloaded it, immediately a threat was blocked! I'll look for another blocker...
  • (2017-09-07) Taint Murder: It's perfect!
  • (2017-07-01) David Dempsey: this thing sucks, since I added it, I'm unable to click on youtube videos without removing them for good, Now I'm having trouble removing it!!
  • (2017-06-26) Emvayey: It is Useful
  • (2017-05-02) Clara Quinion: Does not block all videos. What I really would like is something to prevent videos from autoplaying. Also there should be either a button in the toolbar to pause it, or a way of whitelisting sites where you want videos to play, such as YouTube or Vimeo.
  • (2017-04-20) Tamara Villa Waalkens: does not work,,,has no icon
  • (2017-01-14) Pradip Shenolkar: Great add-on
  • (2016-10-13) S Galanter: Does not work after installing, restarting computer, restarting browser. "Options" is grayed out on my settings after installation. Videos are still autoplaying.
  • (2015-11-18) Felipe Castillo: There should be a way to customize which site I want to block as other people has mentioned before. For example, I just want to block facebook video but allow youtube video. With all the rage about facebook stilling video from youtube and creators, this extension has a huge potential to help that community.
  • (2014-11-15) Kat Gee: Definitely needs options to turn on and off for specific web sites.
  • (2014-06-26) Markus Mayer: Sehr nützliche Erweiterung um endlich die lästigen Youtube Videos los zu werden, an denen man normalerweise stundenlang hängen bleibt.
  • (2014-06-20) Stephen Dougherty: Works perfectly...only one after trying several others. One thing that could make it better is a option to toggle it off/on on a page-by-page basis.
