Comment 1 Philip J├Ągenstedt 2011-07-22 12:25:05 UTC
Like poster="", muted="" has no effect on <audio> elements. For consistency, defaultMuted should only be exposed on HTMLVideoElement. Currently, it's rather odd that <video muted> gives video.muted == video.defaultMuted == true, but <audio muted> gives audio.muted == false and audio.defaultMuted == true.

I've implemented it in Opera with defaultMuted exposed only on HTMLVideoElement, it is my hope that the spec follows.
Comment 2 Philip J├Ągenstedt 2011-07-22 13:55:05 UTC
Oops, the spec actually does make <audio muted> work, it's just one description
which is confusing: "The muted attribute on the video element controls the
default state of the audio channel of the media resource, potentially
overriding user preferences."
