Does it annoy you that Facebook auto plays videos?

    It drives me nuts, only because it opens the video if you barely graze it when scrolling. So annoying!!!

    So turn it off. Settings > Facebook > Settings > Auto-play

    Except this does not work on the mobile app. I have contacted them and reminded them that I don't have unlimited data, but I'm sure they could care less.

    Personally, I have NO interest in ANY Facebook videos.

    What do you mean it doesn't work on the mobile app? I'm looking at it right now with no auto-play and it's working fine.

    I see no settings for auto play in this app. Where is is located? I've looked before and never seen them.

    NM...Just found the settings. It's in iPhone settings, not in Facebook settings where I had been looking.

    So glad I read this thread. One of my streams filled up with videos and I hate it.

    Don't quite recall where I actually found it myself, but it's been in quite a few different tech blogs and news sites, like http://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-disable-autoplay-for-facebook-videos/ for example. A quick search usually gets quite a few results, which is how I came across it at one point when I wondered if I could change it.
