I want to disable this very annoying youtube autoplay feature on my web browser. I try to disable it using youtube UI but after some time it turns on and autoplay starts working again! I am using Firefox 70 on Ubuntu. The answer from 2015 on this site doesn't seem to work for me.

  • There is a toggle above the "play next" list on the right. – Burgi Nov 27 '19 at 9:18

On the left of your playing video there is a list of videos that will be played next. At the top there of that list there is a toggle switch to enable or disable autoplay.

This image shows the switch in disabled mode:

  • It is a cookie maintained option. Do you clear your cookies regularly? – Burgi Nov 28 '19 at 15:01
  • no, but i want to maintain autoplay disabled even after clearing cookies? – Azatik1000 Nov 29 '19 at 13:28
  • That is not possible I am afraid. – Burgi Nov 29 '19 at 23:08
  • I believe this is possible with some javascript magic. I just can't figure out what exactly to do and need an advice. – Azatik1000 Jan 4 at 13:58

I'm with you, I can't stand this feature. I don't log in to Youtube and I browse in private mode so autoplay is enabled every time I close the browser.

I wrote a userscript that checks if autoplay is enabled every 10 seconds, and disables it if so:

https://openuserjs.org/scripts/thomper/Disable_Youtube_autoplay

The usual applies: no warranty, have only tested it on Firefox with TamperMonkey (Works On My Machine™), etc.

Though if it doesn't work for you, you can open an issue on OpenUserJS and I might have time to look into it.
