Stop Youtube autoplaying videos
There are times when you might open a video on Youtube that you don’t want to watch immediately, which makes the site’s autoplaying feature more of a hindrance than a help. Disable Autoplay for Youtube ( bit.ly/autoplay431) is a new Opera add-on that lets you control whether or not videos play automatically by switching its toolbar button on or off. Unlike similar extensions, it works with Youtube clips that are embedded on other sites, too, and you can disable the add-on when you’re working your way through a playlist.
