I use Chrome. After I watch any video at YouTube it connects to another one without even asking. How can I delete that, so that one video finishes, that's all?

YouTube started an autoplay experiment last year.

Here's YouTube's guide on how to turn off autoplay.

You can turn off autoplay in your browser so that it is disabled for all videos, as long as they are not in a playlist. Here’s how to turn off autoplay:

  1. Click the gear icon in the corner of the video player

  2. Select OFF next to the Autoplay option

Alternatively, you can use the toggle above the Up Next section on the video page to turn off autoplay.

Note that autoplay will remain turned off until you turn it back on again.


I know the question is old, and there are many others, sorted by age, beginning with the oldest:

Still, there might be one other workaround which should be the easiest overall. If you are in a playlist, which looks like this:

You cannot see the "switch autoplay on/off" button. Then, copy just the title of the video, search for it on Youtube, and run it from there. Do not click on anything that is called mix/playlist.

By this, you will have left the playlist. And the "switch autoplay" button will be there again:
