Please press Play to Play

I’m one of those who are annoyed that YouTube videos start playing immediately when you open them, especially if I want to open several, but watch them one at a time. I found these two little gems that address this problem:

For Google ChromeStop Autoplay for YouTube (current version

Stops the video playing, but allows buffering. You may find that the video plays for a fraction of a second before stopping, but that’s a minor detail.

For Mozilla Firefox: YouTube Autoplay Stopper (current version 1.0.7)

Replaces the YouTube video window with a blank frame and a big Play button in the centre, but does not start buffering until you press start playing the video.

In the words of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation: Share and Enjoy 🙂
