ScrollTrigger Video Animation - doesn't work on iOS

I'm using scrollTrigger to animate some videos (.mp4) on scroll.
Everything seemed to work fine, except that it doesn't seem to work on iOS (I tested on iPhone 11 iOS 16.0 and on iPhone 13 iOS 16.2).
In fact, it is as if it didn't load the videos, the space remains empty and obviously the GSAP scrollTrigger animation doesn't start.
Did I miss something?

This is totally unrelated to GSAP/ScrollTrigger - it looks like iOS requires that you have the playsinline attribute on your <video>...which React strips out unless you define it as playsInline (capital "I"). Same for the autoplay attribute...but since iOS requires autoplay and you don't want it to actually play, you must listen for the loadeddata  event and pause it and strip out the autoplay attribute (annoying!):
