How to disable media auto-play in Safari on Mac

Safari-AutoPlay-Preferences

How do you think when you’re browsing the web and you stay on a site that plays a video immediately? It might be a news site, a YouTube link, or just an advertisement. No matter what it is, it can be annoying.

Fortunately, you can stop the annoyance in the Safari settings on your Mac. You can turn off the video auto-play for specific sites all of them. Here is how you can do it.

Access website settings

The set of instructions is good if there are many tabs opened at the same time that you want to adjust. To do so

1) Once Safari is opened, click on Safari from the menu.

2) Click on Preferences and move to the Websites tab.

3) Select Auto-Play on the left side.

From there, you will see your Currently Open Websites with any Configured Websites below.

Choose your website preferences

There are three options for auto-play for you to choose from.

  • Allow All Auto-Play: If the website offers a video when staying on the page, it will automatically play.
  • Stop Media with Sound: This option only allows videos without sound to play automatically.
  • Never Auto-Play: No videos can automatically play, regardless if there is sound or not.

You can also configure each website visited separately by heading to the center of the window and choosing from the drop-down box. When you configure the auto-play option on a specific site, it will be listed under Configured Websites.

If you want the auto-play option to be set on other websites, navigate to the bottom of the window and select it from the “When visiting other websites” drop-down menu. However, this setting won’t apply to people you individually adjust that is under Configured Websites. Otherwise, it will apply to all sites you visit.

Use Settings for Website

When you are browsing the web, you can then change the auto-play setting for a specific site. It is convenient if you just have a tab open, rather than a list of open websites.

1) Once the Safari is opening the page that you want to adjust, click on Safari from your menu.

2) Choose Settings for This Website option

3) In the appearance of a pop-up window, switch to Auto-Play and select from the drop-down menu.

If you want to configure certain websites by this way, they will appear in your Configured Websites list in the Preferences as discussed.

Remove Configured Websites

In case you change your mind about configuring certain sites in Safari, you can easily get rid of them from the list. If there are not any sites listed under Configured Websites, the When visiting other websites setting will also be applied to all the ones you visit. To do so

1) Choose the website you want to delete under Configured Websites.

2) Click on Remove button at the bottom and the website will immediately disappear from your list.
