My data is expensive, but I often read NYT/WaPo/BBC articles on Chrome, and these websites have a tendency to embed videos that load in the background (or even start playing) without my consent. Whenever I see one I rush to click the stop button, then add to Adblock the URL if I can figure it out, but sometimes the video has already eaten megabytes before I scroll far enough to see it.
Adding to the problem, I have to disable Adblock on some of these websites.
So, I am looking for a Chrome addon that would block all videos on these websites.
- Works on NYT/WaPo/BBC at least
- Maintained, so that website changes are usually reflected within a week or two.
- Bonus if the video can be played by clicking a button, but that is not a requirement. If I really want to see the video I will open the page in another browser.
- Disable HTML5 Autoplay: Not maintained.
