How can I stop videos playing automatically when I go to a page for a video? The autoplay button only stops the next episode playing. It changes the what episode shows up in my queue. I like to go back to video page to rate a video or read the comments, but don't always want to watch the video again at that time. And I might load the page before I'm ready to watch the video.

Not sure if this will help. I use Google chrome as my browser and I've set it to not play any flash content until I click on it. But that means ALl flash stuff not just here on CR. It's a small inconvenience to pay but I avoid a lot of annoying stuff that way.

FYI, you can access just the comments for an episode by appending /comments to the end of the URL for an episode.

Most browsers will allow you to right click and copy the URL from the thumbnail for the desired episode either on the main page for the series or from you queue.

Thanks. I unticked the "Always allowed" box for Adobe Flash Player in chrome://plugins/ , and now I can click on the grey box if I want to see the video. (I'll have to see how it affects other websites.)
