Make videos click to start instead of automatically starting when the window opens.
I open multiple tabs with different things I want to read & then I close the tabs as I read each window. This is problematic when there is a video somewhere on a page. The videos automatically start and then I have to hunt down each page to figure out where the video is & stop it until I'm ready to watch it. The sudden noise from a video can be startling too if you are not expecting audio.
All pages take too long to load with all the links provided, email, facebook, twitter, etc. If someone wants to send it let them do it separately. Videos should not start automatically.
Please stop having your videos play automatically when I click on your page. I usually do all of my internet surfing at night when the family is sleeping, and it's terribly inconvenient to have a video and/or an advertisement play immediately. Huge turn off when I just want to read your articles and get information!
Hello Admin:... Make "videos click to start..." clearly refers to Both your Content, And Advertisements!!

Hi Brittany. Only one video per page is set to auto playback so our users don't have multiple videos playing all at once. But you brought up a good point - this would only apply if you have one tab open so we are working on a solution which will have no autoplay in our blog rolls. Thanks for the feedback and we hope this will help!
