In Turn Off the Lights v3.1 and higher, there is a new amazing feature to stop automatically playing the YouTube and HTML5 video on that web page. So if you open a YouTube video (or an HTML5 video on that web page) in a new tab, it doesn’t continue to play. So it stops directly with automatically playing the video. When you opening this new tab, you will see that the video is on pause. And you can easily play the video with a click on the play button of that video player.

Stop Automatically Playing HTML5 video enabled thanks to the Turn Off the Lights browser extension
