Can I Turn This Automatic Video Playing Off?

A few days ago I noticed as soon as I click on an item the video starts playing automatically. It never did this before. Is there anything I can do to disable it? TIA!  Smiley Happy

Ditto....it's annoying. When I click on an item, I don't want it to launch right into the video with a voice in the background. I'm usually looking at the pictures or reading the description.

There is a box you can check (right under the main photo/video) that allows you to opt out, or into that feature.

@beach-mom   Yes. 

 

Uncheck "Play Video Automatically."

As is often stated on here, no, there isn't a box for some people.  That is why we are frustrated.

@santorini I didn't know that.  That's strange.

 

Adding:  I'm using Chrome, if that makes a difference.

@santorini  Same issue if you switch browsers?

I'm surprised it's there  (the box) for some but not for others. Usually use Firefox and it's there. I just tried Chrome and saw it also. I wonder why?

Also if you are looking at clothing and the video comes on, if you click on a color, it stops the video.
