BUG: Google Cast Chrome extension bug turns on auto-play for YouTube videos via Gigaom

Update: PSA: The Chromecast Extension Is Making All YouTube Videos AutoPlay In Chrome via Android Poilce 


What an ugly, ugly bug to deploy to thousands of Chrome users. I noticed this today when my Google Analytics page started playing help videos every time I reloaded the page. Android Poilce blog indicates this was a bad push of new YouTube software that manifested itself in the Chromecast app.

BUG: Google Cast Chrome extension bug turns on auto-play for YouTube videos via Gigaom
