Dear fellow Newschoolers,
it bothers me that whenever I click on a video on the frontpage it begins to autoplay in a new tab.
I tend to open more than one edit at a time and I always open them in new tabs so I can watch all the edits I want and dont forget or miss a good edit. Plus I dont have to switch back and forth and go back to the frontpage, reload the frontpage and search for the next edit, picture, thread, whatever.
Usually my Internet is pretty fast and its not really that big of a deal to open every tab and just pause the video and then watch them in the order I want to.
But it would be way better if they did not autoplay! Right now I am away from home and my fast internet-connection for a few months and it always fucks up my computer when I open a few videos at once.
I can't be the only one who opens more than one video at a time in a new tab and then pauses it. Or am I?!
So my suggestion is to stop the autoplay and have the videos play when clicked on it. Similar to Vimeo. When I open a video on vimeo by following a link it does not autoplay. It begins to play when clicked on it and I really appreciate that.
So is this a good idea?
Any input from the mods?!
