Block embedded videos

Post by adhater » Sun Jul 16, 2017 3:08 am

I have a metered internet connection. I try to save on bandwidth. So, in Opera, I disable images and turn on Turbo mode (compresses bandwidth of HTTP pages).

How do I block Wibbitz videos from loading and playing?

I see it on sites like

Code: Select all

Do you guys know if there's a list that blocks videos (embeds)?
If not, how can I block all embeddable videos, including Wibbitz, from loading?
