On the main site, you can find a post I've written. Let me first summarize it and analyze it, and then ask you about it.
Summary and initial analysis of my post on the main site
YouTube offers a little-known service called "YouTube Kids". This service consists of a website, an iOS app, and an Android app. The service is targeted to kids 12 and under. It tries not to let them see inappropriate videos. It doesn't always succeed, but it still does better than the regular YouTube app.
The problem: On the website and in the Android app, I've found, autoplay is always on, and there's no way to disable it. After one video ends, the next starts right away. This is problematic, for various reasons.
Really, I have two questions:
A) In the iOS app, if there's any way to disable autoplay, how can I do so?
B) On the website, and in the Android app, perhaps there's some way to disable autoplay which I somehow missed. If so: What is this method of disabling autoplay?
But, in practice, on the main site, I've folded both of my questions into one:
- How can I disable the YouTube Kids autoplay feature, on iOS or on any other platform?
I've posed that one single question in my post on the main site.
My post on the main site is really partially a cross-platform question. It's asking:
A) How can I do what I want on iOS?
B) If I can't do what I want on iOS: How can I do what I want on another platform?
I looked at help/on-topic. It looks like like question A is definitely on-topic. It's unclear to me whether question B is on-topic or not.
My two meta questions
Question 1. Is question B also on-topic?
Question 2. In the end, should my entire post on the main site remain open or closed?
Allan kindly heavily edited my original post. I'm not sure that this meta question is still applicable. If it's not, maybe we should close it.
