How to disable Videos Auto Playing?

  • How do I stop videos from Auto playing on for example this site :

    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/

    Is there any way to make videos stop loading?

    Would prefer this to work using Opera's built in controls and not having to add another extension or add-on.

    Thank you for any help.

  • @operalinknx1 You need to use an extension.

  • Hi, so I have found another notorious website that autoplays videos and literred with annoying ads.

    https://www.pcgamer.com/

    I found out that using uBlock Origin on its own was simply not enough. Even by using element picker and adding it to filters did not work.

    So I got Adguard extension. Using both in conjunction solves this issue.

    However for epic games store, I am not necessarily looking to completely remove the Youtube videos, just looking to stop it from loading and playing automatically.

    I will continue to look for the best extension that stops videos but does not remove them completely but if anyone has any info on it please let us know.

    Thanks.
