Lazy Load for Videos

WordPress Plugin by Kevin Weber

Speed up your site.

This free WordPress plugin replaces embedded Youtube and Vimeo videos with a clickable preview image. That improves page load times and increases your Google PageSpeed Score.

By loading the videos only when the user clicks on the preview image, no unnecessary JavaScript is loaded. Especially on sites with many embedded videos Lazy Load for Videos is needed.

Customise your video player.

Lazy Load for Videos allows you to customise your video player. For example, you can display the video’s title on your preview image, change the Youtube player colour and remove related videos.

With a growing number of downloads new features will be developed and added!

Plugin can be customised

You’ve probably already seen lazy loading for images, where you scroll down the page and the image appears as soon as it’s needed. Weber brings this concept to video loading.
