> One weird finding, switching to an <img> tag with the mp4 as src ( as described in https://developer.apple.com/documentation/webkit/delivering_video_content_for_safari ) appears to give much better performance, and that would work inline. Downside is no audio, it loops, and there's no controls / timeline or anything. Depending on your use case it might be helpful though...

Yes you are right - I mentioned this in observations in bug description as well.

> The very long time (10s +) between pressing play and the video starting can be seen in the first page - note the progress bar also takes a long time to complete.

Yeah I guess the loading bar is showing until the video is read in full (all 200 times it needs to due to random seeks across the file).
