    hi,
    Has anyone got a solution? The annoying problem I have is with the video pop ups on the daily mail website and I would like to block them from auto opening on my ipad retina 2.
    Regards

    I'm not actually sure if this is possible in iOS. I have checked Safari, Firefox and Chrome browser settings and can't find anything that turns off video autoplay!

    An add blocking app may work, but also might block more than you want.

    Other than that, if you have an account with Daily Mail, you could look to see if there is a setting to turn off autoplay on the videos.

    Also, the Daily Mail articles that show up in the News app don’t autoplay. You can try adding them to your News app, and see if all the articles you care about are showing up.

    This might work in Chrome on the desktop version of a computer, this does not work in the Chrome app on the iPad.
