How to Prevent Videos from auto-playing in Chrome

Post by Rudi »

    
I was reminded on John's post here regarding disabling auto-playing media in Firefox, so I have linked these two together since this is how to disable auto-playing videos in Chrome. I have just recently discovered it, so I'm going on faith in google that it "actually" works...

To disable videos from automatically playing in the Chrome browser, do this:

Copy the following (or type it) into the address bar:

chrome://flags/#autoplay-policy

Find the setting for Autoplay policy and using the drop down, select "Document user activation is required".
(Do not adjust other settings in this page without knowing what they do!)

Restart the browser.

Yikes... I completely missed that post John!

I would have been concerned (re. my mental state) if I had replied to your thread and still posted mine! :crazy:

Rebel beat me to the advice Robie (as per his link above), so I'll keep a little of your gratitude :grin: and pass along the rest to him. :thankyou:
