Summary0028089: HTML5: Safari won't play streaming MP3s until after the user interacts with the game
DescriptionIf you run HTML5 and your default browser is set to Safari, then you'll never get any audio with your game as we generate MP3s. If you take the URL of your HTML5 game and then open it in Chrome/Firefox, then your game will work as expected. We should look into seeing if this is a format issue or if we need to change the type of audio we output by default.
Steps To Reproduce1) Open UNDERTALE
1) Run it on HTML5 from GMS2
3) Open it in Safari
4) See that your game has an audio icon on its tab but nothing is playing
5) Copy the URL and open it in Chrome instead
6) See that your game now has audio

issue is due to safari auto-play restrictions blocking streamed audio playback without prior user interaction
-fixed by playing silent streamed audio on first mouse event, which allows further streamed audio to play without issue; streamed audio will not play before the first mouse event
