What is Stop AutoPlay Next for YouTube™ extension?
YouTube has a new feature to play a relevant track once the current track is over. Unfortunately there is no simple way to permanently turn this feature off. Even if you click on the blue slider to disable the auto-playing feature, on next session, the auto-playing is enabled. Using this extension, the auto-playing will be permanently disabled. In fact you will see that there is no blue slider button on the UI anymore and the next suggested track is blurred out.
