Stop YouTube Video Autoplay (Unwanted Videos Starting When Your Video is Done)

I have received several emails from teachers asking how to stop random videos from starting to play automatically after the video they’ve selected has finished. Here is what you can do:


1. Visit YouTube and choose a video you want to watch > click Play and wait for the Ad to finish running.

2. Click on the Settings gear in the bottom right hand corner of the video box, and turn off AutoPlay.

If you are using a Chrome browser, you can also add the Stop Autoplay For Youtube chrome extension. This extension prevents YouTube videos from playing once they finish buffering if you want to cue up multiple YouTube videos at once. After you visit the Chrome web store and search for Stop Autoplay for YouTube, just click Add to Chrome. That’s it!
