Chromecast extension causing auto-playing YouTube videos in Chrome, fix coming today

Wondering why all the YouTube videos in Chrome seem to be auto-playing on their own all of a sudden? It turns out the problem seems to be a bug with YouTube and the Chromecast extension for Chrome installed by users of Google’s $35 HDMI stick. 

AndroidPolice point us to the issue being reported to Google and a note from the YouTube team confirming a fix is rolling out today:

The YouTube team confirmed that there was a bad push yesterday which caused this issue to be triggered.  There is a fix being qualified and that is scheduled to be pushed today that will correct this issue… Closing this issue for now, since there’s not a Chrome issue here in any event.  Thanks to everyone for reporting this issue.

In the meantime, you can remove the Chromecast extension (Window>Extensions) to temporarily disable the auto playing videos until the issue is fixed.
