Automatic loading and playing vimeo videos is an undesirable behaviour

    Version 3.7 for OS X

    RSSOwl automatically loads any and all Vimeo videos found in any feed's news-item (which is not even on-screen) into Safari tabs, which then start playing. This is an annoying and time-wasting behaviour which slows everything down. A vimeo video should load and play only when the user clicks on it. By default they should just be displayed as embeds. Just because one has subscribed to a feed doesn't mean that the person will want to watch every embeded vimeo video in every news item.

    It's 99 percent that there's an option in Preferences that I have overlooked! Please tell me what it is.
