Disable html5 video autoplay

I’d remove the autoplay attribute, since if the browser encounters it, it autoplays!

autoplay is a HTML boolean attribute, but be aware that the values true and false are not allowed. To represent a false value, you must omit the attribute.

The values “true” and “false” are not allowed on boolean attributes. To represent a false value, the attribute has to be omitted altogether.

Also, the type goes inside the source, like this:

<video width="640" height="480" controls preload="none">
   <source src="http://example.com/mytestfile.mp4" type="video/mp4">
   Your browser does not support the video tag.
