Ease of Access blocking background videos..to do?

Hi everyone -

Working on a client site with a background video on almost every page, which, I discovered, are now blocked due to Windows Ease of Access setting defaulting to block animations. I found this from April:

I have a newer Mac running Monterey, all videos are blocked in Safari and Chrome as well, but on my Catalina system everything works as it should (and has).

I suspect there’s no workaround for this and will require a revamping of any and all sites with background videos, but wanted to throw this out to the community to see if anyone has any ideas about maintaining video functionality without play buttons or attempting to get people to change their operating system settings.
