Help! Can you ID these fast white critters please?

Hello plant experts! I’m quite new to houseplants, and entirely new here, so it’s good to meet you!

I’m trying to identify the spider-like, very fast little critters in my Peace lily. I’ve put a video on YouTube and the below awful quality image is taken from that video. They’re very small bugs, around a millimetre I’d guess. I thought they could be white spider mites but the leaves look ok. I’ve isolated the plant and sprayed it with a rubbing alcohol solution. I’m not happy with not knowing for sure what the problem is. I’ve checked my other plants and for now they seem ok.

I’ll greatly appreciate your experience and responses!
