Follow the steps below to do this!

1. Click on your profile picture in the top-right corner

The first step is clicking on your profile picture in the top-right corner of the Odysee window. Log into your account, go to your homepage, and look in the top-right.

There, you should see your profile picture, just like on YouTube. Click on it and follow the next steps!

2. Select “Settings

Select "Settings"
Select “Settings”

After you click on your profile picture, a window with several options, just like on YouTube, find the “Settings” option and select it.

3. Go to “Content Settings

Go to "Content Settings"
Go to “Content Settings”

Once you select “Settings,” you’ll be redirected to another page where you can find the Odysee settings. Look on the right sidebar and find the “Content Settings” option.

Click on it, and you’ll be taken to the video settings on Odysee.

4. Uncheck the “Autoplay next recommended content” option

Once you get redirected to the “Content Settings” on Odysee, you’ll find several autoplay options.

Find the “Autoplay next recommended content” option and uncheck it. Once you uncheck it, Odysee won’t autoplay videos again.

5. Click on “Save” in the top-left corner

Once you uncheck the “Autoplay next recommended content” option, you should save your settings. This is different from YouTube, where the changes take effect immediately.

That’s it! Now you don’t have to worry about auto-playing the next videos again on your computer.

Is Odysee a safe website?

Odysee is as safe as YouTube, according to the official platform. They use state-of-the-art encryption for their servers.

And considering that Odysee is owned by the people behind LBRY, a cryptocurrency protocol, you can expect serious cryptographic encryptions.

Odysee also has a system that tells you if your password has been pwned.

I’ve tried entering a password when creating my account and received the notification that it’s been pwned. Good to know, eh?

Other than your password, there’s no other security system like a two-factor authentication method.

But then again, YouTube doesn’t have other security mechanisms. So if you were on YouTube, you’d be safe on Odysee too!

Is Odysee decentralized?

Odysee is a decentralized YouTube, indeed. It is a trustless and independent platform that’s hosted on cryptographically encrypted databases.

Hackers can’t gain access to these databases with ease. Moreover, Odysee keeps your video content locked in an isolated space.

So, even if the platform is somehow hacked, no one will access your video content to be able to delete or modify it.

Think of your videos on Odysee like crypto tokens locked behind a crypto password that only you know.

This isn’t to say that your account on Odysee can’t be hacked. That’s the only weak link – human error.

While Odysee has user guidelines, it also emphasizes free speech and anti-censorship.

Allegedly, it won’t interfere with user content as long as it doesn’t breach its user guidelines (pornography, terrorism, brutality, etc.).
