Stop autoplaying videos! Some people browse with multiple tabs open (shocking!).
Stop autoplaying videos. Some people browse with multiple tabs open, or at work, or just expect to read text articles. Autoplaying a video at the bottom of an article is annoying, especially when I have multiple tabs going. I do not like yahoo videos, and almost always close articles with videos, or links to only videos.
STOP with the auto play audio or I'll stop going to Yahoo for news during the day!
Here's where this just happened. I hate it enough that open a few links in new tabs and have to find out what videos I need to shut off.
That particular one was at the bottom. I had to scroll down a big long page to stop it. Just stop the videos in general. Many of us open several tabs at a time, Many of listen to music while surfing. We don't want these things. STOP IT.
Stop blaring auto-played video at full volume! On many systems, this is simply too loud, scares the user, wakes any sleeping beings within 10 miles... Get the idea? Few people decide to regularly use sites that cause annoyances.
This thread is going to be closed as it has been a company focus to stop auto-playing videos when you come to an article page. Please open a new thread and include the link to the article if this happens to you again so we can address the issue. We do not want this experience for our customers.

I totally agree. I do not go to the site while I'm at the office anymore because it just starts blaring noise out of the blue and scares the **** out of me and an it's anyone around me. What an intrusive idea. Yahoo there are several things you're doing that are simply intrusive. It's time to take a good look at these things and decide how much you like your current market share.
Part A: Dec 27, 2012. Story entitled "RGIII fights Uncle Tom image". Link takes you to a Yahoo page that starts BLARING AN AD AT FULL BLAST SO THAT YOU CAN HEAR IT IN YOUR HEADQUARTERS, and after scrambling to try to find it, the video is buried down in the comments. Meantime, my wife woke up, the dog is barking, and the baby is crying.
Part B: What do you mean "provide an example"? It's YOUR website. Sounds like nothing more than a delaying tactic or pretending that management doesn't know anything about it gambit.
yeah stop the auto play...and if there are video options, cut back on the commercial length ...no need to be soooooooooo longgggggggg ....some are longer than the feature video
It is annoying. Lots of eople complained about this. Just look at the comments section.
I agree, no videos should auto-play, or even auto-download.
Here is an example. Reading the latest NFL power ratings, and not only does a video start, it is completely unrelated to the article.
