There must be a way to make it so this video does not automatically load as soon as I click on the Newsstand link, but I don't know what it is.

"...and as your president, I will support mandatory jail terms for anyone who puts self-loading videos on a web page!"

If you can say that with a Joe Quimby accent you've got my vote.

If anyone wants to post disparaging things about me with no risk of me ever reading them, now's your chance; I won't be back to this thread again.

Zeth, you're an idiot! (Because the video's actually pretty good. Toe Nash is 32 now?!)

Flashblock (for Firefox and Chrome, and also for most other things if you look around a bit) is a dear, dear friend. Instead of a video I get a medium grey square with a stylized "f" in the middle of it, that I can click if I wish to discoer Toe's wisdom.

It was actually pretty good, despite the Autoplay crap.

Zeth borrow Chico's soap and never give it back.

If you're browsing in Chrome, you can disable the autoplay. Go to Settings:Privacy, click the Content Settings button, and then under Plug-Ins unselect "play automatically" and choose "click to play".

If you open a page with a video on it, it will just sit there until you click on it.

(I recently learned this, and it's made my internet browsing infinitely more pleasant - I hated clicking a link and immediately being bombarded with sound I wasn't expecting.)

Or, you could just take the .5 seconds required to pause the damn thing.

Thank you, #9. I could have searched all day without finding that!

Thanks, #9!

Came here to ##### just like post one and others...Ugh...this is bs...everytime I get to the home page it starts loading(and no, I'm not looking for a download solution or change settings. I like what I have...I just shouldn't have to be bombarded without actually clicking on something)


If you're browsing in Chrome, you can disable the autoplay. Go to Settings:Privacy, click the Content Settings button, and then under Plug-Ins unselect "play automatically" and choose "click to play".


Thank you...will try it, but if this then means I have to click every time some other plug-in that I'm used to using, it won't work for me.

Zeth get more expensive meal and want to split check evenly.
