Plugin click to play broken

  • I went to


    and set Plugins to "Let me choose when to run plugin content". is not listed as an exception.

    I confirmed that Adobe Flash was not set to "Always allowed to run"

    in vivaldi://plugins

    Then I went to a page on Youtube and it still auto-played.

    Also, can anyone tell me the normal way to get to "vivaldi://chrome/settings/content"? I can't find it under the normal settings page anywhere. I had to google to find it.

  • Aren't most YouTube videos h.264 now? You shouldn't need Flash, or any other plugins, to play them so far as I am aware. Which would also mean that that option won't stop them from playing.

    I actually managed to go about two weeks when I first switched to Vivaldi on my main computer before I even realized Flash wasn't installed.

    Youtube's video player does not use Flash player for modern browsers, so you don't get a click-to-play.

  • @Gwen-Dragon Ahh-- thanks for the clarification. That's a different feature request, then.

  • The extension Magic Actions for YouTube will allow you to disable autoplay
    along with other customisations for youtube.
