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?

No problem. I can't speak for other things because my Youtube plays just fine regardless of if it's muted or not. If I click on a Youtube link and quickly shift to another tab before it fully loads then yea it doesn't play anything until I switch back to it. Otherwise it plays 100% of the time.

Yeah youtube works perfectly but I have to watch some videos for work and those stop playing when I switch tabs.
