SUMMARY: Tired of YouTube videos automatically playing as you access the pages? Try out this extension.
While browsing YouTube in Google Chrome, if you are a "power user" you might want to open multiple videos from a search result in their own tabs. However, since videos are set to automatically play, you must go to each tab and pause the videos else several may try to play simultaneously.
The "Stop Autoplay for YouTube" extension helps solve this problem. Not only will videos be prevented from automatically playing, but pre-buffering will still occur. This way your browser can still buffer several videos while you are watching another one, so they may start faster when you're ready to press play.
1. From Google Chrome, visit the "Stop Autoplay for YouTube" page.
2. Click the "Install" button.
3. Click "Install" in the "Confirm Installation" dialog box when prompted.
Return to the Google Chrome page.
