    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.

    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 cant users embed video from a server themselves instead of using vimeo/youtube? 
    I am envy of the speed video backgrounds take on platforms like wp, webflow etc. 
    Why is squarespace lagging behind on this, do you want us to switch platform? 
    Is there a workaround trick for this? I have searched all over but still no luck .
