Autoplay should be disabled or unmuted by default.
I hate using Twitch because EVERY TIME I load the page, a video starts playing somewhere in the background, muted. I don't know if you're aware, but many users don't have unlimited internet bandwidth, so having a video start playing when I can't even hear it is just wasting my data. PLEASE stop doing this. I would love it if there was an option to disable autoplay entirely, but if that's not in the cards, then at least stop muting the audio! If I go to watch a VOD, I want it HEAR it in addition to seeing it. Forcing me to find and click the little "unmute" button while it is already playing just makes no sense whatsoever. I honestly don't understand why this site is so popular when it is so blatantly unfriendly to its users.
Please give me the goddam option to deactivate Autoplay. I can decide by MYSELF when I want to watch a video. I DON'T NEED you to start every goddam stupid video, because I'M NOT WATCHING IT!!!! Seriously, this is so infuriating!!! AAAAAAH!!!!
