This extension has a bug: it prevents my Chrome from correctly accessing my camera so that I cannot use Chrome for meetings and interviews. I'd like to submit this problem to the developer here.

Stopped blocking all of the sudden. Websites must be constantly updating to bypass auto-play blocker extensions, then, in turn, must update to overcome the new bs LLCs push. They have the nerve to push narratives like crypto is bad because of energy consumption while forcing autoplay down everyone's throats.
