Disable auto-playing videos

  • I don't know if it's possible for Opera to implement something like this, but as far as data savings go I would really benefit a lot from being able to block auto playing videos. I don't have Internet where I live anymore and I have limited mobile data, so a site pulling auto-playing videos (which is terriby common side the world runs on broadband) makes it where I can never use that site because they will have an obscene data footprint that is 100% wasteful.

    I'm a longtime user of Opera and I'd really like to hear that the devs could help me on this one. Please do everything you can to make Opera better!

  • Chromium itself is already implementing this, which means within a couple of versions Opera will have it without their developers actually doing anything.
