ESPN's AutoPlay settings are nonsense. AutoPlay is a setting on the video controls of all of ESPN's videos. It basically allows you to toggle whether videos should play as soon as the website is loaded, or if it should wait until the user presses Play. Well, obviously, I don't want ESPN's videos playing automatically because that's straight up obnoxious. So I always turn AutoPlay off. But in the last couple of months, I must have turned it off at least 20 times. Why? I don't use 20 computers! It doesn't work. Not only doesn't it work, but it always gets reset at the slightest little thing. Like, if ESPN changes their website a little, it gets reset to ON. If flash is updated, it gets reset to ON. But what's worse now is that I have it set to off, as in the picture below, and the videos keep playing automatically! Bullshit.
And, of course, it's not like it accidentally ever is OFF. It's always "accidentally" on, never off.
