We should be able to lazy load the embded youtube/vimeo because it destroys our performance on Google PageSpeed. The solution already exists in full code with the implementation of a facade image where the client clicks and that loads the video only from that moment.
Hi Julie, it's Charles again!
We are thrilled to announce the latest feature that has just gone live - lazy loading for video thumbnails. With the new lazy loading feature, video thumbnails will now only load when users come into view on the screen, which will significantly improve the page load time and overall user experience.
We are always looking for ways to improve our platform and enhance your experience. We hope that this new feature will make your time on GemPages even more enjoyable.
Thank you for your continued support!
Hey Julie, it's Charles!
Good news, GemPages will be supporting lazy loading for embedded videos starting next month, thanks to your suggestion. Your feedback was truly valuable to us, and we appreciate it so much.
I'll keep you updated on our progress and let you know when the feature is live via email.
Have a fabulous day and talk to you soon!
