In your App Dissections, how do you get multiple videos to autoplay at the same time? I've put mine on Vimeo & embedded them as you did, and it works on desktop, but on iOS it literally causes both safari and chrome to crash. Been struggling with this for a while. Also using Next.js as you are. Thanks for any help!
