Stop automatically playing videos
It's very disconcerting to go to a page, and suddenly hear a blast of sound. If I want to see a video, I will click on it.
This is part of data usage, and is not a minor problem.
I've had to find an add-on to stop this nonsense.

I keep seeing video ads about a sports TV program. The articles I read are not about sports. Could ads at least be relevant to the article where they appear?
NEVER START A VIDEO SILENTLY!!! NEVER START A VIDEO WITHOUT MY COMMAND FOR IT TO START!

Easy Idea stop playing sound from ads I didn't click on, I have sound from other browsers playing, you might just keep some visitors on your site if you stop annoying them. Will find my news in other locations if this doesn't stop. People have already left Yahoo in droves, soon will be just like AOL. No one needs it
