Thank you for your feedback. We rely on ad revenue, including revenue from videos, to keep producing journalism. This is the reason we don’t have a feature to turn off autoplay video on the web.
However, if you join HuffPost Plus as a paid member, you will get a mostly ad-free experience on our mobile apps (available for Android and iOS) while continuing to support our journalism. Even if you are not a member, you can avoid seeing autoplay video by using the HuffPost app. Please visit this link to sign up: https://www.huffpost.com/subscribe
On the web, you can stop any video from playing by pressing the pause button at the bottom left corner, and can turn off sound via your device settings.

I absolutely hate, hate, HATE when sites distract me with video pop-ups. On your site, I am constantly forced to close video pop-up windows. Since you are using cookies and various trackers for a variety of other uses, why in the world not notice if I've closed three video windows in the last minute on your site, and quit forcing them upon me? I seriously can only stay on your site for about five minutes before being irritated off it. Not everyone appreciates "in your face": maybe tailor the user experience on your site to make the experience satisfying for more users.Anonymous supported this idea ·
