Turn off Auto-play in Safari?

Is there any way to block Auto-Play media from loading in Safari? Example is the Funny or Die teaser embedded on the MacRumors homepage today. I installed ClickToPlugin extension, but it just won't stop this thing from playing.

Give the AdBlock extension a try?

I use adblock and it doesn't block the videos from starting. I'm wondering if ClicktoFlash might work.

Edit: I just turned on ClickToFlash. It works for stopping the auto loading of flash videos, which I think most of those autoloading ads are flash.

Yeah; I have AB and CTF as my only extensions and I don't see anything.

I don't even have Flash installed, but I will check out AdBlock. Thanks for the tip!
