Some users find it convenient, others find it annoying: automatic video playback in Safari on a Mac. It’s a trend that suddenly popped up since Safari version 11, but disabling the AutoPlay was never an issue in Safari for Mac, until now. Since Safari 11, which has been released with MacOS High Sierra, you can turn off automatic video playback on websites in Safari. This can be set per website or general.
Turn off automatic video playback for Safari on Mac
- Open the Safari browser
- Open the menu of Safari
- Goto Preferences
- Open the tab Websites
- Select Auto-Play
Now click on the drop-down menu next to “when visiting other websites” and make the desired choice. To always stop AutoPlay for videos in Safari, choose “Never auto-play”. If you want to organize this website, you can use the new website settings in Safari.
