Description

WebPositive auto-plays videos from websites that have autoplay videos embeded. This uses bandwidth and in my case, uses part of my allowed monthly data for videos that I do not wish to view.

WebPositive should have an optional setting to disable auto-play and save my data and bandwidth.

This is available in WebKit, only the UI needs to be connected to it:

webSettingsPrivate.setRequiresUserGestureToLoadVideo()
webSettingsPrivate.setVideoPlaybackRequiresUserGesture()
webSettingsPrivate.setAudioPlaybackRequiresUserGesture()
