Similar to Chrome extension to mute all but the active tab I'm having problems with multiple tabs playing music at the same time. I save all my tabs when closing Chrome. Eventually I end up with a lot of YouTube tabs which get loaded when reopening Chrome.
How can I pause "music tabs" (SoundCloud, for example. YouTube videos are also sufficient) or stop loading those tabs when opening Chrome?
The problem with the Mute Inactive Tabs extension is, that the music/video gets loaded anyway thus reducing available bandwidth. If I have 20 existing tabs when opening Chrome but actually want to listen to a new one this becomes a serious issue.
