YouTube and others
« on: July 29, 2013, 07:49:30 AM »
Is there anything more annoying than a autostart video when opening a topic?  Probably but it's a pet peeve of mine.  Is there anyway using board preferences to shut it off?
Thanks
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Buddy....I've 'complained' about this very same thing at least three times.

Short solution....mute your volume once you've heard/watched the video.

I disable my shockwaveflash add on and that cures most of it.

It's not just here.  It's just here and FB I have an audience.  It's like the suits have destroyed everything cool about the Internet and Al Gore ( :whistle: ) have worked so hard to build.  Currently, one of our state's congressmen purchased every inch of bandwidth available in his quest for the Senateship and every time I click it, the cretin appears.
Thanks anyhoo though!
