How to disable video auto-play on MacRumors front page?
I opened MacRumors.com just now and a video about the new iSteve movie began to play. How do I prevent this from happening?
I am using Safari 6.0.3 on Mountain Lion 10.8.3. I tried it with all extensions turned off and it still happened. I do not have Flash installed. (If I need Flash I open Google Chrome which has a Flash player embedded within it.)
I've gone through all the all the Preference options and Menu options but cannot see what might be contributing to this behavior as I am certain it was not happening a day or two ago. I do have the Safari "Develop" menu turned on, but I have not selected any of the options.
Any help appreciated.

Only people with Flash disabled or uninstalled had the video HTML5 autoplay.
We've moved the video behind the jump so that it only autoplays for people who have Flash disabled and open the standard page. Only had a couple people mention it, though.
<b>Edit</u>: We moved it behind an image link so you have to click the image and it takes you to Funny or Die's website.

You could switch to a more customisable browser. I use Firefox for just that reason.
