Can also report, using chrome, videos play in the background just fine. Videos sometimes don't start if I click on them and immediately tab away, but if they're playing they will continue playing.

So I am testing it, and Twitch automatically pauses if I click away from the tab and the volume is on mute.

This happens to me as well when I mute Twitch via it's player and go to another tab. What I do to prevent this is right click on the Twitch tab and mute it from there. It keeps playing if I do that.

Nice, thank you! Trying to get those free things from OW.

You think this is the same for other HTML5 videos?

so yea, once you mute the video it does indeed pause when you switch tabs, but if you don't it keeps playing fine.
