How to Turn Off / Disable Autoplay Videos on the Facebook web on PC/Laptop
Facebook offers a variety of features to make it easier for us to connect with other people, and share information or news in the form of photos, videos, status, location, feelings, stickers, and more.
One of them is video, which often rotates on its own or autoplay on Facebook.
Videos that spin themselves or autoplay are very annoying. Not only does it often appear with a burning sound, but autoplay videos on Facebook can also spend more internet quota than expected.
Facebook’s autoplay video feature is available on the web (computer) and its application on Android / iPhone smartphones. You can overcome or turn off autoplay videos on Facebook easily and quickly.
