Disables autoplay of all HTML5 audio and video
THIS EXTENSION IS CURRENTLY UNMAINTAINED; Please see GitHub for the latest news:


Disable HTML5 Autoplay disables HTML5 audio and video autoplaying.

In addition to removing the HTML autoplay attribute from media elements, Disable HTML5 Autoplay also hooks into the media's JavaScript API. This allows for restrictions on media control and simulation of expected behavior to ensure that all pages behave normally.

Head over to the wiki for documentation, support info, and more:

  • Didn't work for me. Also this didn't work: 1. Go to “chrome://flags” in the URL bar 2. Search for "autoplay” in search bar 3. Look for “autoplay policy” and pull down the submenu 4. Choose “Document user activation is required”
