Thanks @Rohit Yadav !
I'm not sure why the flag has been removed. I did find there is a bug with possible issues with Media Autoplay, thus could be related why the flag is not there today.
As for the future of Media Autoplay, we've captured your feedback and ask.

Today I tried to disable Autoplay, and to my surprise, it was not available in edge://flags/ anymore!
Media Autoplay is very annoying especially when I am in the meeting.

@Rohit Yadav There's a key, but it seems to have no effect on sites I'd like to see blocked. Not sure what is meant by "Most popular websites ", but I'd like to be able to block autoplay on a web site like i can in Safari, perhaps in the "padlock" menu.
Limit Media Autoplay
Algorithmically limits certain websites from playing media automatically. Most popular websites will remain unaffected. – Mac, Windows

In Canary 18.104.22.168 the Limit Media Autoplay flag has disappeared for me. I hope that this is an indication that it will move to a standard feature as in Edge Legacy. I am also hopeful that the feature will be implemented as Block Media Autoplay instead. The Limit Media Autoplay flag did not seem to stop much in the way of autoplaying video.

And while I am hoping, I am hopeful that whatever the final solution is it will provide a way to stop the Netflix background preview autoplay and any others like it.
