Check out the below images, in first tab the favicon is normal which is the YouTube and Dailymotion home pages respectively. Now look at the third tabs, there you can find Unicode play symbols (►) across the favicon of both YouTube and Dailymotion. This means videos are playing on those tabs. Now check the second tabs that are the video pages of YouTube and Dailymotion respectively, where the videos are either paused or finished their playback, so there is no symbols along the favicon.
