  • Use Turbo, that disables autoplay on all videos.

    Even the ones that are not Flash based?

  • One would hope, though I can't guarantee thwt.

  • opera turbo not working , facebook videos still buffering in backend ....

    come on opera developers fix this or create plugin for it , or stop using new realease of chromium engine ,

    old opera was best 😞 this new chrome sucks full of bugs

    please fix few bugs
    -> autoplay of videos specially on facebook
    -> opera/chrome freeze no input of text from keyboard in web :: reasons when u have 25+ tabs open , and developer console is open and you close tab without closing developer console first , occur when models are not closed like when you browse for file upload and click on web page then file upload model is still there not closed , these things cause oepra deep freeze . which need fix

    thanks

    I may be wrong but i guess this is how things work. If a (embedded) video is part of a page then it will be downloaded as it should.

    Btw, Facebook videos do not autoplay, at least here. Backgroun buffering has nothing to do with autoplay.

  • Still, the point of turbo is to reduce bandwidth so it shouldn't load videos.
