YouTube: Prevent Automatic Playback – Here’s how it works
Watching videos on YouTube automatically is not for everyone In fact, the video platform inherits videos based on preferences into an individual playlist and plays them automatically after the current video. To stop this from happening, you can quickly and easily disable the auto-play feature.
To turn off Autoplay playback on YouTube
First, open or open any YouTube video in your web browser, such as Safari or Google Chrome. Normally, when you get the link or video, it will start.
On the right side, above the suggestions, you will find a small button called “Autoplay”. Click on it, it will switch to the off position and just look at the video that is open – no more and no less.
Note: Disabling autoplay Feature will be applied with immediate effect to all devices connected to your YouTube account.
