Coming from https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=162366#c44 I'd like to describe my use case:

I am trying to create a video sampler where musicians or musically interested people can create short video loops (in the gist of audio loops in a traditional sampler) and share this with their peers.

To achieve this, WebKit needs to be able to play simultaneous clips in a group of video elements. I don't think this needs to synced on a per frame base but that would be great of course.

Thanks for looking into this.

Best regards, Dirk

Would like to "+1" this and add another use case - web based video editor/creator. Users should be able to arrange compose various media (images, videos, text; any of which can overlap each other) together into a single video.

I am currently facing this issue on iOS Safari, which will force one of the videos to be muted, while all other browsers work as expected.
