    All I'm trying to do here is get a add on to disable autoplay on Youtube and I have this agreement I have to agree to.
    Are there any shenanigans afoot here?
    It's overwhelming to read really

    Short answer: Use AdBlock Plus, it's the best one and there are no shenanigans afoot.

    Also, if you need to download Youtube Videos, FlashGot and Download Youtube Videos As MP4 are both fine.

    Oh, I've got you, I thought you were trying to block ads. You're going to want to use NoScript and Stop Tube HTML 5 to be 100% sure. The terms you posted look fine, I just don't know what app we're talking about.

    EDIT: Also, NoScript can break some websites, so you might want to disable it for sites it screws up that you know are safe.

    Oh, one more thing, for that to work right you need to sign up for the Youtube HTML5 opt in. Stuff like this is why I don't use Flash, it's the biggest security risk going.

    This just started happening like last week and you would think Youtube itself would have an option to disable it.
    They must've done an upgrade or something because they never started playing automatically before

    That one is safe, if it works for you, go with it. The workaround I gave you is taking flash out of the equation, because some flash players still get around YouTube Options.

    It's not Youtube, it's Flash, which is out of Google's hands (and in Adobe's). Steve Jobs was right about it, but companies are too lazy/cheap to switch to HTML5 so most people are stuck with it, unfortunately.

    Options is a plug-in for Chrome. Like TGS said, it allows you to modify things when you visit youtube.

    As for the agreement, it's standard fare. I did a quick read thru and it's saying by agreeing you waive all liability from the maker, allow them to use non-personal data as they see fit ( like your search results can be collected and data mined, but not your name or user info ). Then the typical you can't decompile, modify and sell stuff. Nothing any normal person would have an objection to. Trust me, I have read some that are super wacky ( like we can sell your personal info to anyone, any time )
