Can you point me to an example? Videos shouldn't be autoplaying, but it may also depend on what browser you're using.

Ok. I think you have a browser issue. What browser and OS are you using?

From what I can tell is that most browsers are NOT autoplaying the videos here. So I would be interested in knowing exactly what browser you're using.
