disable imbedded videos

  • imbedded videos are bugging my browing experience. when reading the NYTIMES or slate, scroll over a imbedded video and it starts playing with sound. I did not ask for that and it annoys me. I'm reading the news, If I wanted video, I'd own a TV( don't).

    Other browsers, I'm told have a setup to disable these videos. Is there such a feature in Opera?

    If not, get one.

  • If they are flash based videos, you can enable click to play for plugins in settings.
    You can also try to use some extension.
