Question about internet video players.

I'm actually kinda embarrassed to ask this but this is important to me.
Maybe I missed an important step or something like that.

So I'm on a page with a lot of youtube videos on it, I preview one but in the middle of the playback I saw what I need, got bored or not interested and decide to watch the other one.

The thing is I can't stop the video from loading, when you pause it, it still keeps loading the file, making sneak previews of other videos a hassle due to my slow connection. I don't want to wait to finish loading a file I'm no longer interested in viewing. That's losing time and bandwidth.

That is not only to youtube videos, other internet video players are like that too.

This happens when playing a couple of videos on the same page.

I haven't seen a way to do this but maybe this could be resolved with a firefox plugin or something like that.

My only workaround atm is to reload the page and open the other video, sometimes losing focus and interest by doing that.

What do you think?

Not sure but I think it's like that for everyone, once you start playing a video there's no simple way to stop it from streaming.

I suppose you could just temporarily block the specific script for that video with ABP and allow it once you're done with that page.
Why have it installed as well when ABP can do the job well enough?
