In Google Chrome i tried extensions such as Disable Youtube HTML5 Player, Stop Youtube HTML5 Play etc but they don't block any HTML5 videos .Disable Youtube HTML5 Player seems to work but only occasionally when it likes to.

 

In Chrome i think only flash videos or ads are blocked most of the time i.e. is really good but i have problems while blocking only HTML5 videos in Chrome

 

I am running Windows 7 with all the security updates except Net Framework. My Chrome browser is also updated to the latest version along with the Add ons.

 

Using the built in setting of chrome to disable HTML5 videos is also worthless for example i tried going to chrome://settings/content and selecting "Let me choose when to run plug in" but still the videos are getting auto played.

 

Any form of advise is appreciated. I am really frustrated with this problem.  :bounce: 

Thanks in advance

I have not used these but you can give them a try. Edit: I really need more sleep. I read your post again. Sorry for posting something you have already tried.

 

For Firefox - Stop Tube HTML5

 

Chrome has a couple of HTML5 blockers. Here is one.

hey i think that add on really works great it just stops the youtube videos from loading into my Firefox browser unless you click on them

yours was a great solution only for Firefox browser

 

now i am going to stop using Chrome because none of those extensions work fine for Youtube videos. Firefox is only good.
