It's a good idea, but it doesn't work anymore.
1.0.3 isn't working anymore even after *leaving trial* of HTML5. I read about the intended fix to circumvent the Youtube upgrade. Having said that, it's a great tool. Saves lot of bandwidth.
nice, finally you fix it GJ
the option "don't buffer videos" doesn't work after a few days from working..
Update works just fine.
Thank you for reacting so quickly!
edit (30-September-2012): I think it’s not working again (FF v. 15.0.1; add-on v. 1.0.3, YT HTML5 is off).
Just installed the update, work great again. Big thank you!!
Best app out there in my opinion!! And your response time is admirable!!
Update is out, but it's not yet reviewed, check the description.
I don't know what happened, but all of a sudden it doesn't work at all anymore. I had 5 videos up & they all started playing at the same time! I hope you fix this soon or i'm gonna have to uninstall, it's really annoying!~
Go to https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/stop-youtube-autoplay/versions/ and install version 1.0.3.
When it works it's great. But it's very inconsistent. For example, these videos still autoplay with the extension installed and enabled:
What makes these videos different from the ones that don't autoplay, I have no idea. This would be a five-star extension if it worked 100% of the time. Or even 90% of the time.
UPDATE: Yes, sure enough I am in the HTML5 trial. Well, I still can't go to five stars given that not all YouTube videos are stopped by the extension. However, I will bump it up to four stars given the developer's quick answer and awareness of the issue. Hopefully it can be resolved, and if and when it is, I will happily bump this up to five stars.
Are you in the html5 trial by any chance? If you right click the video, the last menu item will be "About HTML5", which is the case for both of the videos.
It seems Youtube changed something with html5 videos and broke the add-on.
Simple, Yet powerful
Amazing addon, now I can:
1. Open a video in a new tab for later viewing, like I do with all other webpages (don't know why Youtube thinks they are so special that you want to see the videos immediately).
2. Open multiple videos without the hassle of switching to each tab and pausing them.
This should be the default Youtube behaviour.
Editing my review because this hasn't worked at all for some time anymore.
No it does not work after doing that process. ,,After restarting, disabling and enabling extension,,
My only complaint is that I have to click on a video 2 or 3 times for it to play.
Sometimes YouTube takes a while to start buffering the video, if you try playing it before it starts buffering, nothing will happen.
Pros: I still don't know if there's any...
Cons: Doesn't stop or prevent YouTube videos from autoplaying on YouTube site. Useless against YouTube videos embedded on blogs.
It's not meant to stop embedded videos, as those are not supposed to autoplay anyway.
As for not stopping videos on YouTube, make sure you don't have other add-ons that might conflict with it, and try disabling and then enabling the add-on.
Another GREAT add-on that should be installed into the Firefox browser.
Is a very great addon helps buffer time auto play is an annoyance.
Excelente! Funciona bien.
Hello. Your addon works flawlessly on my FF 13.0.1 and I pretty much like it.
The only thing it lacks, imho, is the ability to cancel not only autoplay, but also automatic video pre-loading.
I personally prefer saving most youtube videos with a download manager and then watching, so I always have to right-click on youtube player and select "stop download".
Download 1.0.0 from https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/stop-youtube-autoplay/versions/
(it's awaiting review)
Go to the options, and check "Do not buffer videos"
Check this video, as it starts despite this add-on being installed!
"[E3 2012] Watch Dogs - E3 Gameplay Demo " at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xU7WGAJPRRw
Thanks to the developer for this great add-on.
Sorry, but it works perfectly for me, except for this Firefox bug:
Please check if disabling and then re-enabling the add-on after a firefox restart fixes it
This is exactly what I've been looking for. I had a similar addon, but it stopped working after updating FF to version 12. So thank you very much!
Unlike intoxikator I did not think this author was in Google development. I usually open "news" links in a background tab and I'm annoyed when one of them (which one?!) starts blaring. Now they just wait until I get there. Nice; quiet.
BTW, I'm on 13.0.1 with no problems.
Пользуюсь этим дополнением очень давно, все устраивает. раньше раскидаешь 10-ть вкладок с видео и бегом на паузу ставишь, сейчас все в спокойном темпе смотрится. Спасибо авторам!
I can't believe it took this long for someone to make this addon for FF.
Thank you so much!
This should be standard in Youtube. I hate when videos and audio just autoplay at random. Also, I hate that we have to make hacks to fix what Google messed up on.
But kudos to dev for doing a good job.
@Nx... honestly, the idea behind the addon is not truly unique. Or rather, not something that without a doubt *adds on* to the main resource.
Youtube could have a simple setting for autoplay on or off, but doesn't. So one has to install an addon. That's what lowers my rating.
But because the implementation is good, and addon is stable, 3 stars. Hope that makes sense.
While we are on the topic, I hardly ever give any addon 5 stars. For me 5 = many years of consistency, reliability and one that makes the FF experience what it is. I think DownThemAll is the only one I gave 5 to; if I did any other, it was a mistake/I was high on something.
1 = a waste of space. Useless
2 = good idea, implementation could be better
3 = good idea, well built app
4 = great idea, great implementation
5 = I can't live without it
Yes, YouTube could have a simple setting to turn autoplay off. It doesn't. It's a major annoyance for a lot of people, including myself. It's not exactly an original idea to fix this, but I do honestly believe my implementation is the best out there.
You are lowering your rating based on the fact that Youtube does something stupid and that you have to fix it by installing an add-on (which, btw, doesn't even require a restart with my add-on, unlike all the others for Firefox). I don't think that's fair. You're punishing me for something that's no my fault (and yet I'm trying to fix it as best as I can!) It's not even something I can change.
Anyway, I'll grant you that it's not an earth-shattering invention that will change the world. It's just that I was surprised that you gave me such a low rating even though it seemed you were satisfied with the add-on.
