Some of them require a double-click or some other quirky way to properly start, but they are in any case still usable. I've been told that even porn websites still work with autoplay disabled.

    It is therefore with terrible sadness that I have to report that your blasted "player" doesn't work at all with autoplay disabled (seems to get stuck in an infinite "loading circle" loop), forcing me to hunt for a youtube link in your page source. Could you please do us autoplay haters a solid and fix that?

    Sincerely yours,

    Welcome to the Cognitive Era ;-)

    What person thought HPCAC, inevitably pronounced "HP Cack" was a good idea? It seems rather a cack idea to me. Or perhaps whoever thought of it hates Hewlett Packard.
