Only optimize background video after a timeout

Desktop / Chromium - Dale Curtis [] - 9 August 2017 16:21 EDT

After some further testing, I concur that it's super annoying for background tab optimizations to kick in and out if you happen to be moving between tabs relatively frequently. Say for watching a live stream, it may take a second or so to resume even though you just left that tab.

As such, impose a 10s delay before background "disable track" optimizations. Pause optimizations are left in place since pause w/o suspend is expected to be very low cost for resume.

Additionally if we add this deferred timeout we eliminate part of the reason we didn't ship this feature for src=. It's not possible to trigger track changes fast enough that we will lose av sync. Unfortunately src= track changes still work by returning the next keyframe, which may be up to 5s ahead which is too far, so we still can't enable until is fixed.

BUG=678663,752726 TEST=manually verify that bg opts don't occur until after 10s.
