Is it by design or accidentally that the autoPlay preference can't be set
through the web interface?

If the player has a current playlist that is remembered across restarts, the
autoplay pref will cause the player to start playback automatically after a
server start. its been there as long as I can remember, and has always been
hidden. No idee if it was originally intended to be hidden. It has come up a
few times, and no interface has been done. I guess on that level, it has
intentionally been ignored :)

If I got it right: start playback automatically when a player is powered
up. (Slim::Players::Client.pl line 966)
