Bug 1262053 - part5 : register audio agent immediately when media element starts playing. In ancient degisn, we would only register audio channel after the media element has audio track and enoguh data to playback, that is because the "audio-playback" event would be dispatched with the registration, and then shows the tab audio indicator. However, now the event dispatching doesn't follow with the registration, it would be triggered when the media element has really audible data which would be notified from media decoder. Therefore, the media element without audio track or without enough data can also register audio channel agent, it won't affect the display of tab audio indicator. The reason we need to do that is for blocking autoplay media in the non-visited tab. The autoplay can be adding "autoplay" keyword or playing by the script, and we don't want to dispatch dom event for blocked media. Therefore, we should register audio channel agent to know whether it needs to be blocked immediately even the media element doesn't have any enough data which can let us to distinguish it have any audio track or not (this information can be known from metadata). First, we must check whether the media is blocked which is notified by audio channel agent, and then we can decide whether need to dispatch the event. If we don't register audio channel agent, that we can't get blocking information. MozReview-Commit-ID: HLLkOuecql1
