Embedded Webpage Videos don't auto play on Windows 7

Client's computer stopped auto-playing embedded videos on web pages, and they would like the videos to start again.
Windows 7 Pro 64
Websites that used to auto-play:
GoldDerby.com
HollywoodReporter.com
LAtimes.com

I looked at one of the web pages that I visit, and I noticed that the embedded video had a link to "never autoplay videos"
"Never Autoplay Videos"
Is there a reverse option for this that would start auto-playing the videos?  A right-click didn't offer any options.
I realize that there are different plug-ins for playing embedded videos.  I didn't see any specific options in the Flash Player Control Panel, but I saw an option to delete all local storage, saved choices, settings, and other data.
Would this reset auto-play option for embedded Flash videos?

Run a System Restore to a time before this started.

Some background:
Many people want to turn off AutoPlay.  How to do it depends on the browser, the site, etc.
Here is how they turn AutoPlay.

You can do the reverse.
