  • Next click the “” link under the “Video Posts” heading
  • FBP will then open Facebook’s Video Settings page and should automatically turn off the Autoplay option for you

  • **UPDATE** Facebook has now started auto-playing animated GIFs, even if you have the above video autoplay setting turned off. If you don’t want to see Animated Gifs autoplaying in comments, you can hide all Animated Gifs using some Custom CSS code, which is listed on the CSS page which you need to add to the CSS box on the FBP settings screen.

    Please note: If you have videos that autoplay with sound, thats a sign that your computer most likely has malware installed on it, as Facebook’s own videos do not autoplay with sound. You should run an anti-malware scanner in that case, to get rid of it. Suggested scanners are: “SuperAntiSpyware” and “Malwarebytes Antimalware

    I hope this helps you,
