Remove support for loading media via filesystem:// URLs on Android. As part of our storage partitioning efforts, we will need to update sandboxed filesystem URLs to be partitioned by StorageKey rather than by Origin. Doing this will add complexity since the entire current codepath is not dependent on Blink where StorageKey currently lives. On Android only 0.0000001% of URLs are Filesystem URLs and this we consider this low enough usage to remove support.
