If you are like me, you get irritated by the new auto-play videos in your Facebook newsfeed. Here’s a great tip from Shelby DeNikeon on how to disable autoplay from within the Chrome browser.
In your Chrome address bar, type:
A window will pop up with some settings. Scroll down that list to “Plug-ins”…
…and toggle “Click to play”
After that hit “Done” and that’s it! Load up Facebook in a new tab and all videos will now require a click before they play.
For those on iOS, you can sorta disable the feature – but only in the Facebook app and only if you are not on a WiFi connection. Lame, I know. See the screen shots below for how to change the app’s settings.
