I noticed this change to autoplay videos this week. It may have come earlier, but I hadn't seen it.

Thankfully, there's no automatic sound play.

I noticed it about two weeks ago and disabled Adobe Flash on their site. Web is the only version I viewed. I seldom go there anymore, that just reinforced it.

I've only noticed this on the web version. I always find the idea of autoplay videos a little worrying.
