Interesting. Setting this to "Document user activation required" eliminated all autoplay for me.

It seems to work intermittently for me at best. Bloomberg is a notable (notably annoying) example that not only autoplays (though at least without sound) but highjacks your first click on the video (usually trying to pause it) and enables sound instead.

Hmm. Actually it seems to be less effective this week than in the past.
