Don't allow videos to automatically play
Very annoying, if like me you use mobile broadband and are effectively paying for something you don't want.
Also slows laptop down.
Videos are still playing I notice, Yahoo doesn't care, so have changed my home page away from Yahoo.
Don't see why I should have to pay extra to ignore something!
Agreed, Yahoo News no longer my home page, I wish to decide when to play the embedded video.

Sometimes I get an advert playing on top of the news video instead of advert playing first and then news video. As if that's not bad, Yahoo has a policy of LOUD videos, so I have to mute my computer before launching Yahoo News because you never know if Britta Come & Go bottle advert will play a loud video in the lower right margin.
Completely agree I use mobile broadband too, if a webpage has an embedded video I close it immediately, on top of they they play an advert first as well! BBC pages just as bad for that too. Very annoying.
