Hi, Charles. Enjoy the the Sunday links, but is there any way you can set it so that the video at the top of this post doesn't automatically start when you come to ionarts?

Ugh, I know. It's been annoying me all week. After much fiddling with the embedding code, I cannot find any way to turn off the autoplay. I think I will have to remove the embedding and not use that site's embedding code.
