start video in backgroud
I need to start a video even though my page is in the background, this does not start until the page is in the foreground, I have already checked the following param network.http.throttle.enable network.http.throttle.suspend-for network.http.throttle.version media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.video-toggle.enabled dom.min_background_timeout_value but none works, any idea how I can activate the video in the background

You can check media*autoplay prefs like these:
- media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground = false
Note that services.sync.prefs.sync.<pref> prefs are about syncing prefs to other devices and best is to leave such prefs alone unless you do not want to sync the specified pref.
