Description from store --- THIS IS THE EXTENDED VERSION: IT PLAYS THE VIDEO WHEN YOU SWITCH TO THE TAB --- If you don't want this, search for the version without "Extended" or use this link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stop-autoplay-for-youtube/figkapeodjhdgnpiamleongcmecfjccb Version History --------------- 4.1.0: Modernized the code, more bullet-proof stopping. Merry Christmas! Performance work; Also updated options page to give more information and a way to contact me when having issues. 4.0.5: This release stops pausing on playlist pages. 4.0.4: Right click on YT Video -> Loop is supported now. Version 4.0: A YouTube™ experiment plays the video after being stopped. This updates addresses that. Also, it has a better performance now. Description ----------- If you've ever opened a bunch of videos in the background, you'll know how annoying it is when they all start playing automatically. With this extension, videos only start playing when you actually switch to tab which has the video in it. You'll never have to worry about videos autoplaying in the background. Plus, they will auto buffer, so no annoying load-spinner. Do you encounter any problems? Feel free to contact me on the GitHub project page: https://github.com/kurtextrem/StopAutoplay/issues. FAQ --- Why does it auto play the video after I switch to the tab? See below: What means "Extended"? Stopped a video because you need to do something else? Switch back to the tab, it will start playing again. If you don't want the extended feature, try out the standard version: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stop-autoplay-for-youtube/figkapeodjhdgnpiamleongcmecfjccb (Search for "Stop Autoplay for Youtube" (without the "Extended")

  • (2018-05-16) Scott Gartner: I liked this extension, but my big annoyance is that it restarts videos that I've already watched (when I return to that page, like after reading comments). If it could tell that I've already watched it and not start it, then I would love that it starts the unwatched (or partially watched) videos. Switching to the "other" extension.

  • (2018-01-10) Kieran Colfer: "Automatically start the video when switching to the tab: [Yes/No] To keep the extension fast, there is no way to change this behaviour through options." So, an extension called "stop autoplay for youtube" explicitly says that it has no way to stop autoplay for youtube. So, what's the point of it really?

  • (2016-10-28) martin flaxman: didn't work - what was wrong with the original? that worked beautifully...
  • (2016-07-20) Steven Lithgow: It's pretty confusing what exactly this is supposed to do. It didn't stop YT videos from playing for me in anyway I could observe so, given the add-on's name, this is a failure. I tried the other version before (without "extended") and it stopped videos from auto-playing but it also interfered with playback in other ways that I didn't like. Out of curiosity, does anyone know WTF is wrong with Youtube that they don't just have this obvious-as-it-can-possibly-get function already as part of their service?
