I want videos to autoplay.The recommendation is to use the standard video element directly. Will it load all videos at once? If so, is it possible to use the API to load the videos when the slide becomes active?

    You may use events like rsAfterSlideChange (that triggers every time a slide is switched), or rsAfterContentSet (that triggers after slide content is added, for lazy-loaded slides too). And activate your videos there.

    For example:

    var slider = $('.royalSlider').data('royalSlider');
    slider.ev.on('rsAfterSlideChange', function() {

    ... will give you the current slide element, and you may either dynamically create video element or play/pause it.
