Auto-playing Videos are annoying at best (perhaps you didn't want that video clip to start playing before everyone visible of your display) as well as data-wasting at worst (perhaps you didn't want to burn up that data on a video clip you didn't also really intend to view)-- so we absolutely recognize if you want to place an end to it. Allow's start with Facebook's mobile applications then relocate onto the desktop for complete insurance coverage.

Ways To Disable Auto-Play on Mobile Instruments
To disable auto-playing video on Facebook's mobile applications, we need to going to the Settings menu. We're using iOS for this tutorial, but the alternative coincides on both iphone as well as Android. Select the menu icon to access your Settings.
Select "Settings" in the resulting menu.
Select "Account Settings" in the pop up menu.
Select "Videos and Photos" from the Account Settings menu.
Within the "Videos and Photos" menu choose "Autoplay".
There you could toggle the Settings in between constantly playing regardless of the network, only auto-playing on Wi-Fi, and never ever. Select "Never Autoplay Videos".

No have to stop our battle there - let's spend an added few seconds to do away with it on the desktop computer as well. Log right into your Facebook account as well as click on the menu arrow in the upper right edge. Select "Settings".
Within the Settings menu, pick "Videos" from all-time low of the left hand navigation pane.
Within the "Video Settings" menu, pick the fall box beside "Auto-Play Videos" as well as toggle it to "Off".
With that quick modification, auto-playing Videos are currently a distant memory.
