Not sure if this is a bug or intentional, but for a few weeks now I've been having the twitch feeds start playing by themselves when I log in to the GB homepage.

I'm getting this, too, but I can't tell if it's a problem on Twitch's end or Giant Bomb's end.

I believe that is an intentional feature. A toggle of some sort would be nice to have though.

Same thing here. I thought it was a new "feature," that was being used to artificially bump up views on streams. I wish there was a way to turn it off.

Yeah, I'm not sure why it changed, but I'd definitely prefer for it to not autoplay.

I would prefer for it to not happen, but it seems to be an intentional change.

Yeah, that's really fucking annoying. Several times just today I've gone to the front page only to be accosted by very loud noises I didn't expect. If it was an intentional change, I'd very much appreciate it if they'd make it not so.

Please disable the autoplay. I changed my bookmark to this site to the podcast page instead of the main page for this reason.

@eskimo: @monetarydread: @scratch: @jking47: @truthtellah: @chaser324: @punkxblaze: @parsnip: @herbiebug: I think we disabled this today. Sorry for the trouble; it was always supposed to just be on the chat page. Let me know if it's still happening on the next stream. (It wasn't to bump up stream plays or anything; we actually had problems with some users who couldn't figure out how to properly hit the "play" button on the embedded player and would wind up getting sent to the premium Twitch stream, which doesn't work unless you have the password for it.)

@rorie: Cool. Yeah, this afternoon during the stream, it didn't seem to autoplay; so, that's good. :)
