Video playback in the background

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 36.0.0
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android & iOS

I’ve been searching online for a long time and all I’ve come across is other people asking this question.
Is background video playback still not possible in Expo?
In my project I’m using react-native-webview to load a website and I would like the videos on that website to keep playing when the app is in the background. This seems pretty impossible so far, even if I were to use the Video component from expo-av to load the videos instead of playing them inside the webview.
Is this really impossible?
(I really don’t want to consider ejecting because I don’t own a Mac and I need to build for iOS)
