Very pleased with phone but when I 1st set up I selected autoplay videos when going through the gallery, it slows down browsing a tad and plays vids when I'm not ready. How do you stop them from auto playing.

Thanks

Hi I have the same problem.

I found the setting to switch the video autoplay in the gallery off but it still wont stop to autoplay the videos and it mutes the videos when it starts. I even restarted my S9 but nothing works. 

 

I am so frustrated with this. Please help me

 

Thank you

 I must say the settings for this phone are not very direct at all but I did find where to shut off video auto play. Open up a video on your phone. Any video and let it start playing. You will see the vertical 3 dots up in the right hand corner of the videos screen. Click on it and select settings in the drop down menu. It will take you to the video player settings where you can switch off autoplay. Let me know if this helps.

I still can't seem to resolve this, even after trying everything, it must autoplay regardless,

Thanks anyway
