Add profile flag for autoplay option on launch

As a user, I want to adjust settings and other options in the native Streams site without the video playing automatically every time the page reloads.


Please add a flag or other option associated with the user so the user can specify if videos should play automatically when page is loaded.  As it is now user must stop the video everytime they make a change to video settings.  If working with several videos (such as working with a series of workshop video's) this becomes very distracting from efficient work.

Would like to have it as personal setting for every user!

Opening a video to editing the settings also artificially inflates the views.

How is this not a default setting or at least an option?????

I'm also a little shocked that this is not already available. I adjust a lot of video descriptions, permissions, and other settings, sometimes during other meetings, and I do not want the video (or more importantly, the audio!) to start every single time I load the page.

WOW... only 4 upvotes.  I expected this to be a popular request.  This is a definite need.  Please add this feature.

I loathe and detest autoplay with every fiber of my being. Let me decide if and when I want to play my video. I have course lectures that I want to trim and then add to a channel. I don't want the video to start playing every time I land on the page; I want to perform the necessary actions without having to go stop the video again and again and again. Just stop, already!

I cannot believe it is not possible to disable autoplay.

We're finally starting to make use of the platform and, while it's a bit annoying for our users it's utterly infuriating for those of us who upload and manage the videos to have it auto-play every time!

Occasional Visitor

A definite must. Thought it was just me not finding the appropriate setting - very surprised that this feature does not exist. Please, please allow user to disable autoplay.

Occasional Visitor

Yes, please! We're talking about a corporate environment. It's almost sure there are other employees working together and quietly, many times. User HAS to have an option to start to play the video or not.
