Follow up to #56319 (updating to the latest 4.x release).

The latest version of mediaelement, as of today, is 5.0.5.

Version 5.0 made the player WCAG 2.1 compliant, but some of the changes required are breaking. It's possible this update can be merged into WordPress without issue, but this update needs to be fully tested, and there may be a developer note required to communicate action that needs to be taken by plugin and theme developers.
