        <pre>Playing the following video in Safari on macOS 11+ and iOS 14+, it has audible crackling/popping:

<a href="https://res.cloudinary.com/scv/video/upload/small2.mp4">https://res.cloudinary.com/scv/video/upload/small2.mp4</a>

In Chrome, or on earlier macOS/iOS versions, it does not.

I think this is the same issue reported by many people here: <a href="https://discussions.apple.com/thread/252705782?page=2">https://discussions.apple.com/thread/252705782?page=2</a>, but I couldn't find an open WebKit issue about it. I will also submit via Feedback Assistant, and post the ID# here.

Is there anything anyone can share about the root cause, or possible workarounds?</pre>
