turning off Edge Autoplay Video

After moving to Edge from Firefox a few days back, i noticed all the stupid autoplay videos are back… After a bit of digging, there are a couple of steps to fix this:

First, go to edge://flags. Search for Show block option in autoplay settings and mark it Enabled

Restart your browser and now to go edge://settings/content/mediaAutoplay

Select Block. This will block all Autoplaying Video on all sites. If you want to enable a particular site, you can add it to the allow list.

And that’s it! No more stupid autoplaying videos!
