Apparently at least one feed I read has embedded media links that play automatically whenever a story from that feed shows up in the feed view. I really really wish those embedded media links were disabled so that I didn’t suddenly get blasted by sound just for a story I never intend to open.
It’s up to the publisher, unfortunately.
Euuu. That’s a shame. I was kind of hoping there was some kind of rewriting you could do to the html: add/remove an attribute that said “autoplay” or something.
I guess I’ll just have to do the dirty work of figuring out which feeds are responsible and nagging them about it. For what good that will do.
