    Videos starting automatically

    I've been noticing that videos in news stories on nbcnews.com start to play automatically when there is a video with the story, like this one: Navy siblings this to me is totally obnoxious. I thought maybe it might be something in both I.E. 10 and 11 but ruled that out, when the same thing happened in Firefox.
    Anyone know of a way I can turn this off?

    thanks
    John

    There are different workarounds for each browser: Why do videos start playing automatically when I visit a website? How can I stop this?
