I often read the comments below the video after watching an episode. To prevent interruption of my reading of the comments, a setting to turn off auto-play of the next episode would be nice.

Click the circular orange arrow at the bottom right of the player to turn it white. It will stay toggled until you click it again.

I never noticed that either, and auto-play is something that has been annoying me!

Thanks for this! Precisely the answer to the question I was asking, succinctly put!

This must be out-dated because I don't see what you are talking about.

Since comments are only available in a browser, this thread applies to the Flash web browser player, since the original question mentioned stopping autoplay so that he could read comments.

Click the circular arrow when a vid is playing, it will remember the setting:

Autoplay is off here:



Autoplay is on here:


For IOS and android there's a toggle at the top right when playing a video. For Roku, there's no way to turn it off. I don't have any gaming systems, so I don't know whether those have a method or not.

Thank heavens I have a choice in this. When shows in my queue suddenly started switching on to the next episode, I thought I had been sabotaged!

Next video in: 5

Next video in: 4

Next video in: 3
NoNoNo!
Next video in: 2
Backspace! Backspace!
Next video in: 1
...
...it broke...
