Back to Today's Deal

No autoplay videos/twitch feeds please


I do watch the videos… when I’m ready!


Exactly what we’re probably going to do. :slight_smile:


Why not a little gift animation like the one you have (or used to) for the items on the store? id still be a big file, but nothing compared to a video stream.


Another autplaying twitch stream again today.
Problem solved, I’ve just blocked the Twitch box with ublock origin. It’s so simple I should have thought of it earlier :smiley:

Why not make the game trailer the default selection?


Part of the attraction for our partners is the views from the streams, but totally understand the downside for folks with metered internet. We’re actively working on a solution for this so everyone is happy. :slight_smile:


Hello, Is it possible to disable the autoplay livestream from the homepage?
I forgot the page had it and found my internet usage cap decimated when i realised…


How’s this coming on? The stream today ate a bunch of my mobile data, it makes me not want to check the deal when I’m on mobile :frowning:


Hmm, autoplay should be disabled on mobile devices. Could you let me know what device/OS/browser you’re using?


thanks for making a topic about this. I dislike it as well when it autoplays streams/videos. “hey guys x here, don’t forget to subscribe”


what i dislike about the autoplay now is that it’s muted, so u don’t even realize there’s a stream open to begin with, and what if u happen to leave that page open…

Thanks, we’ll look into this.


Didn’t reproduce with today’s deal


We just pushed out an update and are working on another to solve this for good.




Good! :+1:t2:Because I was worried about that when i go camping as I use my tablet to get my coins daily.


Until there’s a proper solution to the autoplay problem, you can stop embedded Twitch streams from loading by blocking* in your adblocker of choice.


I blocked it like this in uBlock Origin, it removes the whole part with livestreams and trailers.

This is the result:


Just happened again with one of the charity Streamers
But I can’t get it to reliably reproduce.


We have a full fix for this in testing now, sorry about that!
