    Step 1. Launch Chrome on your computer and enter: chrome: // flags in the URL box with a normal link
    Step 2. Next, press Return / Enter.
    Step 3. Now, you need to find the auto play section. To do that, just enter Ctrl + F and then enter Autoplay policy.
    Step 4. Next, specify "Autoplay policy" and select the submenu. Next, you must select "Document user activation is required."
    Step 5. Finally, click Restart Chrome to make the change complete.
    And From now on, the video will not play automatically on the web. So if you want to see, you'll need to click on them to see.
    This is everything that I did when the Facebook videos always auto-play on my newsfeed. After that, I use FB2Mate to download videos from Facebook to my PC. You can take it easy like me.

    The thing about that Mr JoJo is that as long as you don't interact with the website then it will not play, otherwise it will.

    As for FB, there is a setting within FB that you can disable autoplay.
