Anyone who is a cricket fan would've surely noticed the ridiculous auto play video functionality on ESPN cricinfo. It's very annoying to not be able to disable the auto play mode on cricinfo videos, even when there is a toggle button to do it. It just does not work when you reload the page or open another page containing any video. Unfortunately, Adblock Plus also does not show 'Block' option like it does for flash. Not sure, but it could be because ESPN cricinfo uses HTML 5 for it's videos. Anyway, I googled and found a solution to the problem. No need of installing any addons.

In firefox, just type about:config in address bar and click on "I'll be careful.." and then search for 'media.autoplay.enabled' and change boolean setting from 'true' to 'false'. That's it. No more annoying auto play!
