We may, or may not, like automatic audio/video playback, but the reality
is, most, if not all, video sites automatically start video playback.
Question is, why not?
As a user, it's convenient for me to search for some video, click it and
... do I have to click the play button? Or ... wait, I have to enable JS
for the play button as well. (*cough* forced branded UI *cough*)
