Suggestion : Stop auto playback!

My suggestion, or rather, request, is to stop videos from automatically playing. When I visit or click into certain web pages, videos on those pages automatically play and sometimes it gets frustrating because you have to search for the video playing in order to stop it. That's really annoying! If ADBlock added the ability to stop auto playback on most if not all websites it would be awesome! Thanks and great product!

    Hi Marcomania,

    This is actually something you can control yourself. Makes a nice change sometimes, doesn't it? :)

    1. Type chrome://settings in the address bar.
    2. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Show advanced settings.
    3. In the Privacy section, click Content settings.
    4. Scroll down to Plugins and select Let me choose when to run plugin content.

    Please let us know if this doesn't help!
