You Tube auto loading videos after playing a video

When I want to watch a video on You Tube it always immediately starts loading another video after the one I wanted to view ends.  Extremely annoying but even more important that feature will gobble up data...I was just looking through settings and trying to find a way to disable that, so far no luck.  Can anyone help with how to stop this annoying setting?  Obviously if I wanted to watch a specific video I would select it to watch I don't need the site using up my data loading stuff I don't care to see.  Thanks.

In the upper right hand corner there an autoplay feature for up next that can be toggled on/off:

 

Off hand the setting appears to be saved in a cookie so beware of how you're handling/clearing those.

Thanks!  Got it,  I guess that button was too obvious to me, I was looking through all the less obvious places for a spot to turn that off I guess.

Thanks Old Labs. Makes me wonder what the next video after "Best of dogs meeting kittens ...' would be. :)

This is some what unrelated but keep in mind that everyone that uses add blocks and don't see the commercials in the videos that means that the person behind the video is not getting paid because you didn't watch the commercial. On the plus side for satellite users they are xomming out with YouTube red which is $10 a month and you get commercial free videos
