Stopping autoplay on thumbnails on You Tube

Last week the You Tube station started auto playing the thumbnails.  It never used to do that and while you can disable the 'autoplay' for the next full video to play, there doesn't seem to be a way to stop the annoying nauseating moving images on the thumbnails.  If there isn't a way to stop that, I will have to stop watching it on the Roku TV because it literally makes me want to barf every time it frantically tries to play the video in the little thumbnail pic.

Re: Stopping autoplay on thumbnails on You Tube

That doesn't happen for me.

What I'm wondering is, are the thumbnails you talking about regular YouTube videos? Or are they YouTube music videos? If they are music videos, there's a separate setting for those. The regular disable autoplay setting doesn't affect music videos. Look for the setting for those.

Re: Stopping autoplay on thumbnails on You Tube

no, it is not music videos, it is all videos if the cursor is anywhere in the vicinity they will start frantically playing at accelerated speed. There is no setting to turn it off.  The auto play setting is for it to play the next video automatically once you finish watching one, it has nothing to do with the thumbnails.  I hate it.  HATE IT HATE IT  HATE IT!!!!!!

What cursor? Roku doesn't have a cursor like you have on Web browsers. You can use the arrows on the remote to move from one selected item to the next, but there is no cursor to be "in the vicinity" of anything.

Maybe restate the issue.
