Turn off/on autoplay on

There are two ways to enable or disable autoplay on the website. 

One method is to access it from the site player itself. During playback, move your mouse around on the player to bring up the control panel. Click on the Gear icon and you'll see a pop-menu with several options, including Auto Play. Choose either On or Off, depending on the setting you prefer.

At the end of every video you watch on, there will also be a Pause option. If you click this, Auto Play will be turned off for the next video.
