iOS 9's WKWebView now exposes a property which allows videos to not be autoplayed and require user interaction to start: https://github.com/WebKit/webkit/blob/master/Source/WebKit2/UIProcess/API/Cocoa/WKWebViewConfiguration.h#L107. We should expose this as an option to users.

Seems like autoplay is turned off by default so not sure if we want to allow users to turn ON autoplay?
