Do yourself a solid and head on into the options for Instagram v4.0. There you're find a checkbox to keep the all-new InstaVines from automatically playing. Your ears will thank you. The ears of your friends will thank you. And it should speed up the app a little as well.

And we, also, thank you.

Wish I could make my own instavines. My galaxy note 2 makes me sound demonic.

Joe H. says:

works fine on my note 2 (with no case) and cm10.1

jmart75 says:

That's funny my Note II did the same thing with the demonic voice. I'm running Jelly Beans v17 and put a video of my kids on there. The video plays fine but the sound is in slow motion and not synced with the video. It was actually quite funny though...

And I thought it was just me.

Yes! I noticed this feature when I updated the app, it's what I like the most comparing it to Vine, which autoplays everything and is kind of annoying.

Thanks for the heads up! Should be off by default. Sheesh.

Notice the screen shot is an HTC One. Sweet. :) I imagine auto-playing videos could be embarrassing with those speakers and BoomSound. ;)

Yeah, I found that yesterday.

The whole "It's not Vine, it 15 seconds, not six seconds." thing reminds me of the scene in "There's Something About Mary" where the hitchhiker is explaining that he's going to get rich by coming out with a workout program called "Six-Minute Abs" to one-up the popular "Seven-Minute Abs" that dominated that ab workout/scam market of the time.

Typo in the second sentence. I think you meant: "you'll".

The most important option?
Don't download Instagram.

First thing I went looking for after updating the app. I'm not sure how these videos are cached, but if they're downloaded entirely whether you play them or not, then there should be an option to disable that, too...
