Disable Facebook’s auto-playing videos feature in the browser

This article was been published more than 6months ago. The information contained herein may be outdated.

Facebook recently added a new feature; whenever you scroll to a video in your timeline; it automatically starts playing. If you like it; well, good for you. You have no need for this. If, however, you, like me, think it’s an annoyance, here’s how to disable it:

  1. On the right-hand side of the facebook top menu, click the downward pointing arrow, then Settings
  2. Under Videos, you will find a setting called “Auto-Play Videos” – set that to “Off”

Annoyance stopped. Enjoy!
