Enable/Disable option for autoplay feature in past broadcasts

Hey, I watch alot of past broadcasts and I don't quite understand why we're all being forced to use this option. It might be good with short videos like on other platforms, but on here it's more painfull than useful.

Me and probably many other people watch them while going to sleep. So If you wake up and there are random streams marked (auto play plays random pb's for me), it's hard to remember what you actually watched.
I also noticed that it doesn't always shows what's going to be played next https://gyazo.com/838517e196f50c6d757a3f6d9b1a9a3d .

I really hope you implement this feature as fast as possible.

        I've desired an actual option to turn this feature off for quite some time.

        +3. Strange feature, this autoplay. No idea why not more people have a problem with it, since there's loads of people using VoDs to fall asleep. Hopefully either of the two (twitch or BTTV) will implement something to resolve this soon.

        When playing a past broadcast, it will autoplay to the next video. If I watch a past broadcast and fall asleep, twitch will continue to play overnight, or until my laptop battery runs out. This is an undesired feature and there's no way to turn it off.

        In fact, the feature doesn't make sense, since the upcoming video is always the previous one, videos will never be played in the correct sequence.

        It's shameful to see that this hasn't been removed already.

        Please let me turn this off.

        I've opened this as an issue on BTTV who will hopefully implement it, if twitch does not: https://github.com/night/BetterTTV/issues/1996
