Question Embedded web videos not autoplaying - all browsers except Edge

Issue just started happening recently. I have Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Brave, and Edge browsers installed. Edge is the only browser that will autoplay embedded videos in websites (generally HTML5 videos used as background or "atmospheric" design elements).

Issue is on my desktop. I have a laptop with the same browsers and video plays fine. Both machines are running identical anti-virus/security apps.

I'm thinking something at the OS level (Windows 10 current build) has become borked, but don't know where to look beyond the built-in video playback troubleshooter (which is useless).

At the individual browser level, I've done all basic troubleshooting - checked settings, disabled plugins/extensions, turned off hardware acceleration, etc.

Again, two essentially identical systems. One autoplays embedded website video fine, one doesn't.
