You could go into about:config and set these two preferences to false:

media.autoplay.enabled
media.autoplay.allowscripted

But that will stop autoplay for all sites, not just YouTube.

If what you're asking about Youtube's definition of "autoplay" -- meaning automatically play the next video, then block this script in uBO or ABP:

Code: Select all

watch_autoplayrenderer.js

Unfortunately, since latest player update, YouTube Lazy Load not always prevents autoplay. You can track this issue here.

This does not help either. YouTube Control Center and YouTube No Buffer also have the same problem in both Firefox and Chrome.

I suffer very much from this problem myself :cry:

That's strange, cuz it works just fine for me!
Setting the "YouTube Video Auto Play Behavior" to "Auto Pause" effectively prevents YouTube videos from auto playing.
Also, unchecking the "Suggested video will auto play next" prevents new videos from loading after playback has finnished.
Perhaps when testing, you had a similar extension installed, and they somehow conflicted with each other?

Actually it is not stop of autoplay, playback is starting and then pausing. This does not prevent data preload and a few second of audio are heard. There was no such problem before player update.

I can confirm that the video buffer loads, but at my end there's no actual playback whatsoever.
