Back to Today's Deal

No autoplay videos/twitch feeds please


#39

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…


#40

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:


#41

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


#42

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”


#43

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.


#46

Didn’t reproduce with today’s deal


#47

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


#48

Nice


#49

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 https://embed.twitch.tv/* 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.


#53

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


#54

Is not a good thing, you know? I couldn’t even understand what was eating up my traffic at first. I would’ve been really angry if I didn’t appreciate your site so much. Avoid doing that shit (and “funny music” or whatnot) in the future, alright?


#56

It’s easy to stop this in Firefox without relying on extensions:

The video doesn’t buffer or play until you click on it.


#57

You’re still doing it. Just a reminder.


#58

You don’t want to fix this, do you?


#59

Please fix this. Imagine having a metered connection and having a silent stream on the bottom of one of the tabs just eating up your money for nothing - this is it precisely. It’s not a minor issue.
