Poll: Autostart Video on Website?

I've been debating this in my head for far too long. I don't like sites that play music, so I'm tempted to take off my autoplay video. At the same time, as visitors get the feel of the site, that is a beautiful time to be loading the video. Your vote?

Don't autostart music unless there is a very obvious way to stop it. Don't autoplay a movie when the user first loads the page either. The video should autostart if the user specifically clicks on a video link though.

Since the video is the center part of my site, I'm thinking about playing a silent clip that either loops or ends with a suitable graphic.

Anyone else?

A silent video would be good. I hate sites that play loud music or videos when they load. A graphic or similar without sound would be a good idea.
