What is QuieNet?
QuieNet is a Chrome extension designed to stop the annoying auto-play feature on Ynet's website. It replaces the media player with a stub, preventing videos from playing automatically. Users can click on the stub to restore the original player and play the video if they choose to do so. With QuieNet, browsing Ynet becomes more peaceful and enjoyable without the disturbance of multiple videos playing simultaneously.

Ynet is a great site, but the auto-playing embedded videos can be extremely annoying. For some reasons, the site designers overlook or ignore the fact that people use tabs these days, and one might open a bunch of tabs before reviewing each one of the pages. When this is done, multiple pages start to play their content, creating a disturbing noise.

QuieNet is a Chrome extension that prevents videos from being automatically played. The extension hooks Ynet pages, and replaces media player with a stub. When the stub is clicked by the user, the original player is restored, and the video is played.

New in version 2.0

  • Video autoplay is cleanly prevented, without replacing the video player.
  • Autoplay is prevented even if player is not the first one on the page.

The only way I get it to work is if while on a specific ynet page I disable and then enable the extension. The next time I open ynet it's back to the same old loud videos.
