Steps to reproduce
open a website which uses video advertisements (foxnews.com, for example). notice that the video advertisements automatically play (with audio).
The user may indicate their preference for audio and video auto-payback.
If the user is on a non-metered connection, this option may default to auto-play. But for metered connections, the user should be prompted to indicate their preference.
ALL plugins are expected to respect this setting and the user should not have to indicate their preference on a per plugin or per website basis. While websites may configure their videos with a preference to auto-play, the user’s preference MUST be respected.
