Weren't we getting rid of autoplaying videos on the home page? I recognize this is valuable content, but I hate autoplay. Really
The video player on the home page is by Universal Sports. They are advertising with us and providing current video highlights of ski events.
There is an option to dismiss it with the X in the upper right hand corner if you choose to not see that video.
This is one of the key advertisers who helps us keep the lights on and they also provide the video's. I'm glad that they allow us the option of dismissing it if someone is not interested in the player.

That is correct. To make it reappear for one person it will reappear for everyone, which can be dismissed again on an individual basis.
We're working on an option to make it reappear on a personal basis.
