Are we blocking download of video files too? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great, yes, it decreases the noise and eye pollution, thank you. I have limited bandwidth and my main concern is to not download big video files when I just want to read the news. This app is not letting me know if I am successfully blocking also the file transfer.

The inverting plugin (or FlashStarter) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very strange plugin! On the site Youtube, he stops the video as it should be and that's all right. But all the other sites, it is the other way around their launches!
I checked, this is really to blame for this plug-in, because as soon as I unplug it, and at other sites all comes back to normal.
It does not prevent me, and I am very happy that I found this handy plug-in, because I very often use Youtube. But imagine other people who love and other sites, meaning they do not have to install it because the plugin does the contrary, from what they want to get rid of.

In Russian: Очень странный плагин, на сайте Ютуб он останавливает видео как положено и с этим всё в порядке. Но на всех остальных сайтах, он наоборот их запускает!
Я проверил, в этом действительно виноват этот плагин, потому что как только я его отключаю, так и на других сайтах всё приходит в норму.
Это мне не совсем мешает и я очень рад что нашёл такой удобный плагин, потому что я очень часто пользуюсь Ютубом. Но представьте других людей, которые любят и другие сайты, им смысла устанавливать его нет, потому что плагин наоборот делает то, от чего они хотят избавиться.

See my post in the support site to fix

it's more of a player issue but i'll consider it for the next version

This is it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you've tried all the others and not been happy with breaking playing of html5 or flash, or e10s, then this is what you want. Stop looking. Works perfectly for me. Using dev channel version.

Flashblock is dead. Love live FlashStopper! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

No autoplay on Youtube, which means no throwing megabytes down the drain.

Excellent Add On Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use it along with Flash Control. Together, they have stopped every video from autoplaying on my computer--for years.

Prevents me from replying to comments Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works, which is nice. BUT! When I try to reply to a comment on YouTube, I get an error in red letters and can't comment. When I disable this add-on, I can reply to comments again.

Any fix for this?

Answer to your comment:

If I go to a Youtube page with a video on it, which is paused by your add-on by default, in order to reply to comments I have to first click on play (play a portion of the video). Otherwise I'm not able to reply to comments (error in red letters appears).

With your add-on disabled, I don't have this problem.

It seems that comments on YT works only when the video is paused...

let me know if it worked

Edit: you need to make the change described in the post...
let me know if it worked in the support site!

Does the job Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Does what it says in the description.
The name was chosen badly I guess (since it also works with HTML5 and webm).

One thing that massively annoys me though is that it only has a whitelist and everything from sites not on that list is stopped automatically.
But on most sites I actually want to let videos play automatically; instead there's only a handful of sites where I want to stop the videos. So a blacklist and an option to switch between whitelist/blacklist mode would be much appreciated.

阻擋自動Flash的好東西 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

有的時候會逛到一些掛載了一堆自動撥放Flash影音的網站,覺得這些會自動撥放的吃資源玩意很煩嗎?這個時候這個附加元件就派得上用場了。

The e10s version is still experimental since proactive blocking only works with a workaround... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you very much for -yochaim- Flash Stopper and hint!

Great job! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly on Palemoon. This is functionality I've been wanting for *years*! Why isn't this kind of basic thing built into the browser? ANY browser?

Nickel sur Palemoon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sur 10 add-ons testés FlashStopper est le seul qui bloque parfaitement l'autoplay des vidéos html5 youtube et dailymotion sur Palemoon 26.4.
Thank you yochaim!

Does exactly what you'd expect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good for older computers as Flash content is heavy and it's quite annoying to have something play as soon as you open a site.

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Unlike every other addon I have seen this one seems to work with all videos i have found so far ( all ofthe other addons I tested had difficulty working with one or more of my fav sites making me need multiple addons that all do the same thing to get it working completely on every site but this works for all sites tested so far). It also has an option to add sites to an exclusion list which is nice because my youtube addon (youtube high definition) doesnt work well with most other addons and 1 of its many features already disables auto play. So being able to whitelist youtube in this addon to prevent conflicts is great. The ui is clean and easy to use/understand as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a way to stop videos from auto playing.
