hi,

i discovered an autoplay toggle option in the about:config (media.autoplay.enabled)
i set it to False to desable any video/sound html5 autostard media.
you can safely check it with
https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.as ... o_autoplay
the video is not playing ! well done !

Now, i wish to know if this stop the loading of the stream media too ?

i hope the big stream file content is not load in background when the autoplay is stop because i wish to gain some bandwidth.

does anybody have a way to check the media file is not fully loaded when the autostart is disable ?

Else not, a media.autoload.enabled option would be pleased...
