I have stooped video from playing automatically on my personal page a long time ago. It is very annoying. Now, as of a few days my business page does this and there is no settings/ Videos. to stop it. Does any body know how to do this? I have asked this several times on the FB help with no answers.

@Calvinder,
I just checked my own business page (I have an author page) and I agree, there doesn't seem to be a setting for auto-play, or to turn it off. At the same time, videos don't automatically play on my page.

Are these Vines or YouTube videos, or something you uploaded straight to Facebook, or something else? Are you seeing this on a desktop or laptop PC? On a Mac? On a phone or tablet, using a Facebook app? It's possible that the differences are stemming from either the content, or how it was shared, or the app or platform where you're accessing Facebook. I can't promise that any of these would fix the problem, I might add, but at least if you knew that the issue is only with videos you've uploaded directly, you could instead put them on YouTube and then just share YouTube links, that sort of thing could be a reasonable workaround.

@jespah,
Hey jespah
I am using a desktop and the videos playing are other peoples and are playing on the news feed. Nothing I upload plays automatically. It is the same with any browser.

Hiya! Smile

I wonder if these are Vine videos. Are they really short?

@Calvinder,
Ah, then I bet a lot of these are Vine videos. Far as I'm aware, they play more or less automatically, Facebook or not.

Like this link:

@jespah,
They might be Vine but I found some that are up to 4 min long. can vine be that long? Any that play do not say what they are and not you tube. Oh also they can go full screen.

@Calvinder,
It looks like some Vines can go pretty long (but I don't think they go past 5 minutes). You can always limit the postings to your page to only be from admins/moderators/other people with actual roles.
