Video won't play at start of scene



This test scene has a video that starts as soon as you enter play mode. This works in the editor or in Desktop Standalone, but it won't work in WEBGL builds.

To reproduce:
- download this project
- open the Menu Scene and press play
- notice that a video will start playing
- ensure the build target is WEBGL
- press build and run
- when the build is finished, in the browser, the video will not play, instead, all I see is a black canvas and the Text item that's also in the scene

Reproduced with 2018.4.28f1, 2019.3.13f1, 2019.4.13f1, 2020.1.10f1, 2020.2.0b8 and 2020.1.0a1

Playing from URL is just as broken. try using this URL to test:

    Resolution Note:

    VideoClip cannot be used with WebGL, but Playback using URL does work, so the Docs need to be updated instead
