I was wondering if there was a way to prevent this video from popping up as you scroll down the page?

https://www.nbcsports.com/boston/patrio ... -vs-ravens

If yes, how do i do it. I prefer to not even see it when i scroll.

TIA

I thought it would be:

about:preferences
General -> Browsing -> Enable picture-in-picture (uncheck)


But it is not. So?

I was told, that in this case, it is the website itself that is doing that, & it does seem to be the case.
As in you get "picture-in-picture" even in browsers that never had any concept of "pip".

Blocking JavaScript would probably do it?
Or maybe there are particular items you could block with uBlock to thwart it?
