I don't mind (in fact I prefer) it show in the medial player in the viewer pane, but I don't want it to just start playing.
As an alternative, is it possible to persist the state of the mute/volume settings? I thought this might be a workaround but the player resets the volume to max and with mute off each time you click on a file.
All I can find is posts from 2012 and 2009, and none of those methods work, or they refer to pugins or settings that are no longer present.
Worth noting that I have tried disabling autoplay in the movies plugin (as suggested by posts from years ago) and not only does this not stop audio from autoplaying, but doesn't even stop movies from playing either.
