    Does anyone know how to block videos from automatically playing on their website? I'm only referring to the Google Chrome mobile edition. It sucks to be browsing the news only to have the freaking video play without selecting to do so. I've got autoplay turned off in my settings but somehow CNN seems to circumnavigate my settings. It doesn't happen with other sites I visit. I guess the best answer is to simply refrain from visiting their site. Probably the best move anyhow.

    There is a disable html5 autoplay extension in the Chrome plugin library thing.

    That I don't know. I only use The New York Times app for news on my phone.
