    OK so it seems as though every site now has to have auto play videos. Does anyone have recommendations for a blocker on Chrome?

    Thanks

    I use FlashStopper. Don't know if there's one for Chrome or not.

    My quick glance at the thread tile read Autopsy Videos. I thought we had reached a new low.

    Chrome supposedly blocks Flash, but doesn't do a great job. Most of the annoying sites seem to use HTML5 now

    I hate what you describe but what's especially annoying to me is the delayed video on the tab still left open after you have moved to another site. Now while watching the current tabbed site somewhere, hidden, that damn audio-video starts playing out of sight on one of the other open tabs.

    Disable HTML5 Autoplay

    Yeah I've already been trying that one out, it does stop some sites from playing although it still lets the video pop-up but it's on pause. There are still some sites that this will not block though.

    Very frustrating.

    I just plugged this in an went to my local online rag, and sure enough, their HTML5 videos that blare at volume 11 got right past it.

    I keep my computer speakers turned off until I go to a site where I want sound.

    I would contact the author of that one, provide the sites that are able to bypass the addon and have him fix it.
