Google Chrome Extension – Stop Autoplay for Youtube Videos

2-26-11: Initial release.

So for the longest time, I have been a proud user of the Google Chrome browser. What I like about it is not just the minimalistic interface, the sandbox tabs, or the bookmark sync, but also the plethora of extensions readily available for the browser.

For me, I have a youtube account that requires daily activity to answer various youtube comments. What I hate doing is going to a video page, and have to manually click the play button to stop the video from playing. Isn’t there an easier process?

In fact, there is. There is a Chrome extension called “Stop Autoplay For Youtube”, and it does what it says. When you visit any youtube video, the video does not instantly play out loud, it is paused and buffering in the background.

For me where all I want to do is answer a quick comment, this works very well into my workflow.
