Why do some videos start playing as soon as you enter a thread, and is there any way to turn it off? It's annoying as fuck. ty.

You can add auto play to the embed code.

I don't see any benefit to having auto play really.

I'm not a fan of it at all... but oh well. It can be done, so count on some who think its cute to do it.

If videos I encounter are on auto play, I will remove the video.

If I might offer suggestions that might appeal to both lovers and haters of Autoplay, I added autoplayed "Feelings" to the "Feelings" thread last night and pulled the autoplay this morning. I haven't seen any comments against it being up for a short time.

If anyone does think a thread requires autoplay, limiting it to a maximum of one day or the time it takes to get to the next page, whichever is shorter might make it more acceptable to everyone. Plus, any autoplay song or sound effect should be on topic and really funny. If we need another limiting rule, one autoplay per month per member might keep it from getting out of hand. Just throwing out suggestions on how we can live with autoplay rather than banning it completely.

If you were to have 4 members autoplay something on the same page, it would be pretty annoying.

moderators can edit them with the quickness.
the majority of autoplays are annoying, but when they are done at the right time and in the right thread, it can actually be pretty hilarious. as long as nobody gets carried away with it, it should be fine.

To make it easy, we could always just say if 1 or 2 people complain about the autoplay in the thread, first mod to see the complaints or OP get rid of the autoplay. If the autoplay is really good, no one will complain.
