Background videos with sound were already banned from the browser's side a few years ago. So you can try what you want, the browser won't allow it anyway.
Foreground video, that users start, obviously can contain sound.

If you are using jplayer, you can place an icon or animated icon somewhere and detect the click.  On the click mute or unmute

https://jplayer.org/latest/developer-guide/#jPlayer-unmute

for icons, maybe fontawsome if you are using it  https://fontawesome.com/v5.15/icons/volume-up or https://icons8.com/free-animated-icons/sound
