For the previous one week, I’ve skilled an odd factor on the favored video internet hosting web site YouTube. Video playback works high-quality, however once I depart the web page on which the video is enjoying, for instance by clicking a YouTube video to return to the service’s homepage, the audio for that video continues to play.
This occurs when Adobe Flash is getting used to play the video, but additionally while you use the HTML5 video participant by becoming a member of the HTML5 beta on YouTube.
As you may think about, that is very annoying, particularly as a result of it may imply that a number of movies begin enjoying on the identical time (when you launch one thing within the new tab as a substitute of the outdated one).
I’ve spent a while attempting to determine why that is taking place, and whereas I wasn’t ready to take action, I got here throughout various choices on YouTube to resolve the problem.
So what are you able to do to cease audio from enjoying on YouTube while you depart a web page that is enjoying a video? Listed below are your choices:
- Shut Tab. Sure, it won’t be the most suitable choice if you wish to watch extra movies on YouTube, however it’s an choice nonetheless.
- reload the web page. Notice that you should both use Ctrl-F5, F5, or right-click and reload from the context menu to take action. Clicking on YouTube’s homepage icon or every other web page on the positioning is not going to clear up the issue, except it’s a video web page.
- Set up the Google Chrome extension Enhance YouTube. that is all there’s to it. You need not make any configuration modifications as it’s going to cease the audio subject robotically. Nonetheless, you can also make modifications to the choices in order that they give you the results you want, provided that the video modifies the web page considerably when the extension is enabled.
- Swap to Firefox or every other browser that does not have the issue, and watch YouTube movies utilizing it.
Whereas nothing has been confirmed by Google, it’s doubtless that this can be a bug that will probably be mounted in upcoming variations of the Chrome browser. For now, use the reload choice or a Chrome extension to unravel it in your finish.
