Description from store Disable Autoplay for YouTube™ is a lite extension that lets you easily stop YouTube videos from auto-playing. Toolbar button serves as ON|OFF switch for this addon. In other words, you can simply click on the toolbar button to enable or disable this addon. The icon will change color accordingly. Green color shows an active state and dark gray color shows a disabled state. Simply add this addon to your browser and start browsing YouTube. With this addon, videos are stopped automatically from playing when you open them. There is an option in the settings page to play or pause videos when a tab is focused or hidden (unfocused). These two options are not active by default. This addon works for all YouTube videos whether they are embedded or not. However, you can disable this feature from the settings page. Note: in order to report bugs, please fill the bug report form in the addon's homepage (http://mybrowseraddon.com/disable-autoplay.html).

  • (2022-04-16) Trent Isaacson: If this disabled videos from automatically playing on Youtube, it would be named appropriately. However, it does not do this. I suggest the developer change the name to "Does Not Disable Autoplay For Youtube".

  • (2021-04-04) EndyDiD: If you are Looking for a Good Youtube only Autoplay Blocker/Disabler - This is it!. This is the best one for that And I Highly recommend that anyone who thinks they need this tries this😉
  • (2021-03-20) Julian Jones: Works very well for me. Very useful extension if you don't want youtube to autoplay, as Google seem to have progressively removed the ability to do this from their own settings. Easy to switch on and off with the toolbar button and simple option selection by right-clicking the toolbar button. One minor glitch is that youtube channel pages sometimes fail to display when the extension is enabled, but a simple workround if this happens is shift-refresh.
  • (2021-03-17) Anas EL BOUDALI: this extention has NO FUNCTIONALITY
  • (2021-01-14) Jay Cee: Doesn't work at all. Click on a youtube video, then it plays automatically.
  • (2020-12-15) Blackpaw: Every third or fourth time a new page is opened, the page won't load. But when pages do load, the video doesn't play, so I guess it works when it's working.
  • (2020-12-14) Jacque Fresco: У меня работает )))) Единственное ))) Версия 86.0.4240.75 (Официальная сборка), (64 бит)
  • (2020-12-14) Nojus Klemensas Anskaitis: Best Extension for the Job. it also has a bunch of extra things that are just like a cherry on top. I love this thing <3
  • (2020-12-09) olymind1: Thankfully it's still working on my end without any issue.
  • (2020-11-13) Jem Crystal: update: nvm it stopped working today ___ Works as intended but it stops the vid at the BEGINNING of the video. What I need is when sharing my lessons with students to stop the video at the point where I share the lesson. Youtube "Share" you can copy paste a url that puts you at point on vid. If I try use this extension and youtube share exact spot on vid this extension will not let me go spot on vid.
  • (2020-10-24) James Hamilton: sucks. does not work
  • (2020-10-14) Виталий Дементьев: То, что надо. При загрузке страницы, видео не ставится автоматически на паузу… Оно даже не пытается запуститься! На месте видео видна картинка оформления видео – та, которая обычно видна только на миниатюрах в списке видеороликов. А когда готов посмотреть видео – нажимаешь F для полного экрана и пробел. Установил, проверил – пока работает стабильно.
  • (2020-10-13) Kardo Rostam: It really works! :D the video does not auto play now when you open it. A blessing for people with many Youtube tabs open.
  • (2020-10-09) Valentin Pshenichnikov: Не работает
  • (2020-10-07) Nojus Anskaitis: BEST😍
  • (2020-07-18) James Henson: Did exactly what I wanted. However, if you are on desktop and go back to a previous page it still allows the sound from the previous video to play for several seconds. A minor annoyance, but way much better then a YT vid playing as soon as I click the thumbnail.
  • (2020-04-13) Igor Frolov: Не работает!
  • (2020-04-12) Tomas Prochazka: great stuff against more and more gluttonous Google Booble corp.
  • (2020-04-07) Mi Monir: It's working. Thanks
  • (2020-04-03) Come On Fhqwhgads: I can open multiple youtube tabs & not have to go in & stop each one. Edit: Only Stop Autoplay app still working in 2020. Recommend uninstalling & reinstalling if not working.
  • (2020-03-31) Sprache Chroe: No longer works, in a catastrophic manner. It blanks out every page you open on YouTube. Major bug.
  • (2020-03-24) Víðarr Kerr: The extension no longer works. The video is stopped, but then it is completely unable to resume. YouTube just displays an error message. This extension is broken on all my browsers on my Win10 machine and all my browsers on my Ubuntu machine.
  • (2019-12-23) Doctor Bag PhD: Not often i'll leave a review but I wanted to get away from Magic Actions which had started causing chrome to crash and this has done the trick. Thank you!
  • (2019-11-02) Gianmaria Bonici: this works great, finally!
  • (2019-10-28) Brian W: As of 10.1.2019 this extension works nearly flawlessly. the video might run for 1-3 seconds, but it's so much better than an autoplaying ad.
  • (2019-10-11) S: Only addon that de-facto stop playing background tabs with video from youtube
  • (2019-06-30) Лапшинов Вячеслав: Добавьте возможность заблокировать кэширование роликов.
  • (2019-03-02) Sourav Soni: not working
  • (2018-12-08) Mm To: 10/10
