Just a quick question: Some websites (like CNN) start to play videos automatically, even when you haven't clicked 'play'. Personally, I find this tactic annoying and intrusive, and it sometimes results in a page crash. Is there any way to turn off this 'auto play' feature? Thanks in advance.
PS: I just searched the Opera forum and found this topic discussed on 32 pages. Too lazy to read all 32 pages. Has there been any progress toward disabling auto-play? How about a quick re-cap from a kind soul? Thanks again.
And while I'm on a roll, here's a message to CNN and all the other websites that engage in this practice: 'If I want to watch your f-ing video, I will click on the f-ing PLAY VIDEO icon'. There. I always feel better after venting
