 > Hmm, maybe not allowing all audios/videos but what about fixing this in
 a way that only Youtube videos can auto-play. Can torbutton or another
 thing do this or only Noscript?
 > Also I think dailymotion too has changed the way html5 works. I now see
 the html5 player automatically but cant get any video to work. It says
 "Media not supported" in every video also on
 [http://www.dailymotion.com/html5]. Can we do anything about this too?

 Could be worth checking out the viewtube greasmonkey script
 (https://userscripts.org/scripts/show/87011). Would need to be vetted and
 modified to stop inserting http (no TLS) elements in TLS sites though.
 Also it doesn't seem to work half the time, but the idea is there.
