How to silence autoplaying website?

Is there a way to mute websites that automatically play audio or video when you load the page? I LOVE that Chrome added the little speaker symbol to the offending tab, which at least makes it easier to find, but I would prefer just to silence it.
Michael has a good answer, but here's a link to the Chrome support page in case you need it later:

Go to chrome://flags/#enable-tab-audio-muting. Enable that and if you click on the speaker it will mute that tab (and that tab only).
