  1. I found a sollution to this which forces the browser to load the fallback before the video: Go to SETTINGS - ADVANCED - INSERT CODE Insert this code in the FOOTER block: <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ // Custom script to load the fallback image of a video in the background while loading var startObserver = function(sqsVideoEl){ var MutationObserver = window.MutationObserver || window.WebKitMutationObserver || window.MozMutationObserver; if (!MutationObserver){ return; } var getPlayerElement = function
  2. Hi! Just noticed that the fallback i have used (jpeg 23kb) is not showing on newer Iphones (11), just a white background color. It was working a few days ago but now it doesn't load unless i navigate around the page and come back to the index page, and somehow forces the page to load it in. It works on earlier Iphones and even shows the video too and not only the fallback image. (Iphone,7,8) I am so frustrated with squarespace and the issues they have with video banners. They take incredible long time to show and you cant host your own. (must use vimeo, youtube etc)
  3. Site URL: http://www.helpinghand.as Hi! The instagram module is not showing the two latest post from my instagram account. I have deleted the old module and set up a new one with the same results. What is going on here? Regards.
  4. Thanks for your replay, but its doesnt really help. I have cheked other squarespace sites that use video and they all have the same issue with slow loading times. I did a quick test with a 720p video that was less than 1mb (765kb) and it still takes 4-5 seconds before it loads. If i use a image as a background it loads straight away even if they are larger in size. So the problem is on the embedding part. For some this might not be a big deal, but for me it makes my site looks slow and unresponsive.
  5. I have a huge problem with how video is used in the background on websites, and that is how long takes to load and show the video. No matter if you are on a super fast connection it still takes 5+ seconds to show the embedded video for first time users, and at that time most users have left the website. It also doesnt matter if you have a small looped clip witch should take a second to download in the browser because of the embed time. On mobile it fails to load, even if it was working fine a couple of weeks ago. Right now the background video option is unusable because of this. Why
