Hi, please share your suggestions, we are listening

Please remove the autoplay videos from your front page.

I visit Yahoo! from many places, most of which I don't want videos to be autoplayed. That's the primary reason. The secondary is that I would like to READ the news at my own pace. I get that videos are more profitable for you, but I will just use another site if I can't visit Yahoo! without videos autoplaying.

    i have tried several fixes but cannot get the vids to stop autoplay. VERY VERY VERY ANNOYING!!! I PREFER TO READ MY NEWS. PLEASE ADD A DISABLE AUTOPLAY FEATURE. THE RESULT IS I AM STARING TO GO AWAY FROM YAHOO TO READ MY NEWS

    Yes, Yahoo. I am completely capable of pressing the Play button if I decide I want to watch a video. I may be somewhere where I don't want the video to play. Or it eats up data. Or I'm reading an article and all of a sudden the video loads, I have to stop what I'm doing, and go turn it off. Really annoying.

    Yes, Yahoo is the worst!! So annoying to click on a news story and be greeted by an autoplay video at full volume!! Give the reader the option on whether to play the video or to read the article.
