Can you please remove the auto play videos on the main page? It is a nightmare to have five different videos play when you visit the page and have to scroll down, find each one, and then pause them.

none of the videos are set to auto-play. Check your browser/plugin settings.

I'm using Safari 5.1.2, the only plugin I have installed is ClickToFlash 2.6, and I'm definitely getting auto play videos.

After looking closer, click to flash is converting the flash videos to HTML5 and the HTML5 videos are the ones that are auto playing. I'll just add mac rumors to the allow flash list and that should correct the issue.

The 'Load Media Player Automatically' option on the Media Player tab of ClickToFlash was the problem. I once again have peace and quiet on the main page. :D

Thanks for the help!
