Allow media autoplay

Allows you to control if videos can play automatically (without user consent) with audio content in Google Chrome.

If the policy is set to True, Google Chrome is allowed to autoplay media.
If the policy is set to False, Google Chrome is not allowed to autoplay media. The AutoplayWhitelist policy can be used to override this for certain URL patterns.
By default, Google Chrome is not allowed to autoplay media. The AutoplayWhitelist policy can be used to override this for certain URL patterns.

Note that if Google Chrome is running and this policy changes, it will be applied only to new opened tabs. Therefore some tabs might still observe the previous behavior.

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
