I'm seeing videos about the best of IMDB at Toronto, or the making of Goldfinch, and there is no way to turn it off.  This is unacceptable.  You do not have permission to play content on my computer without my permission.  What the ..are you people thinking?

Somebody posted about this a year ago, and they were told to click on settings and turn it off, but there are no three dots anywhere on the widget, and the three dots on my google browser don't have the option.  This is terrible.  I can't do what I want to do on IMDB because this stupid fff widget is taking control of my computer.  This is crap,.  I am going to have to stop using IMDB because I can't control my computer when it is running.

Hi Mark,

Thank you for your feedback regarding the autoplay function of the video advertisements you referenced. Keep in mind that you are typically able to "Hide" or "X" at the top-right hand side of the player. 

I've gone ahead and passed along your feedback to our team for further consideration, and will change this post to an Idea, where it can be reviewed by other IMDb staff and users.
