  1. Site URL: https://fashionfilms.co.uk I have built a portfolio page as the home page for my new website https://fashionfilms.co.uk Each of the blocks is coded to give the interact I was after. The videos are iframes from Vimeo at 240p, the smallest I think I could use. I am happy with how it looks and love the quality of the videos vs gifs. BUT I am a bit concerned that the video heavy page is too slow to load and that it will be held against me in the SEO arms race. Attached is a screen grab from Pingdom. The page is 15mb and it takes 5.6 seconds to load. I understand the conventional wisdom is that I need to get this down to under 3 seconds. Which I guess could come from halving the page size. So my questions are Does it really matter? Does Google really penalise slower sites? I can imagine that my target audience- professionals, working in marketing on desktops, might be more patient than a doom scrolling consumer. So I am not overly worried about user experience but more about whether the site won't rank as well (other things being equal) as competitors. Is Vimeo the best video delivery platform for what I am doing? I can imagine that host the films on Squarespace maybe faster/ allow me to use smaller versions- but I am not sure I can code iframes for videos on Squarespace. Is there another way of making the videos smaller? How can I reduce the DNS lookups? Not even sure what that is. Would I be better off having a smaller landing page with a strong link to the portfolio? Any other thoughts on what I can do would be very welcome. Thanks S
  2. Site URL: https://www.pinteafilmcompany.com Hoping to add a popup "lightbox" video on the "WATCH OUR REEL" button on the home page! Would love to do this without the use of third party plugins... but if it's necessary, let me know what you suggest. Similar to this: https://www.noravera.com/ Mike
  3. Site URL: https://fashionfilms.co.uk Hi, Thank you for taking the time to read this and special thanks if you have any thoughts on my new site that you would like to share. https://fashionfilms.co.uk We create fashion & beauty content & advertisements and are based in London. This is a portfolio site that hopefully will entice new clients. We have had a 7.0 site for a while and decided to upgrade and use iframe videos rather than gifs to animate thumbnails for links to our films. I am particularly interested in hearing about the following user experiences: Load times- the main page is quite video heavy. Is it making everything drag? Design- Is the home (main portfolio) page to frantic? Does the amount of moving content drive you nuts or keep you interested? Messaging- Is it clear what we do? Navigation- Did you find it easy to get around? Suggestions- Would love to hear any thoughts on any aspect of the site. Any way of making it faster? Thank you in advance
  4. When using the video code block in squarespace 7.1, is there a way to disable the recommended videos after the youtube video finishes playing?
  5. Site URL: https://osloeventhub-copy.squarespace.com/ password: oehcopy Is there a code to remove the user interface of the video block and make it looped autoplay? TYIA!
  6. Site URL: https://www.moochcreative.co.uk/ On the desktop version of the website, we have a full width video, which work perfectly, but on mobile, it's too small, the plan is to switch to a portrait version of the video, when adding the video a separate section on desktop, it does not full the full index section, so when it's on mobile, you have space either side, the idea is that I was the full poirtrait video to take up the full depth on mobile. As the site is live, the portrait video section is hidden, so if anyone knows, I can make it live so it can be expected and any code can be shared, a screen shot is below showing the issue. The site is on 7.0. @tuanphan
  7. Site URL: https://thomasdepontes.com/portfolio/hawaiipressurewash My videos are becoming so incredibly discolored every time I add them into my website. I heard something about there might be an overlay over the video but I can't find where that would be located. I searched the site style tab for hours and I could not find the correction to make.
  8. Site URL: https://www.aireelography.ca I have a video on our home page as Code Injection. it autoplays and loops fine on desktop <center> <video autoplay loop width=1280; height: auto > <source src="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/62aa4929c26e8132135830a4/t/62d806511b9c3c0b8dd2f62c/1658324572985/Home-web-page-intro.mp4" type="video/mp4"/> </video> </center> iPhone format is terrible (need to scroll and all other elements are pushed to left). I would like to modify the video so it displays on the mobile iPhone correctly in Portrait (I guess using Media query) and have it play only when user clicks start button (so no autoplay or loop). Desktop autoplay and loop should remain Also adding text to video will help as well thanks in advance
  9. I've been having numerous problems with SS and they're telling me it's bc the homepage of the website uses 15 MB of data rather than the recommended 5 mb. The biggest thing I have on there is a 12 second looping video- it's 12mb. I just readded it as a Youtube link instead. Will this lower the data usage of the site?
  10. Site URL: https://nectarine-oboe-kme5.squarespace.com/ Hi there I am trying to autoplay the video below from Vimeo on my page. On home, the background video in the header works like a charm, but later the next video above the headline motions, does not work. https://nectarine-oboe-kme5.squarespace.com/ PW: orneverornow I adjusted the code, but i can't find why it is not autoplaying on the site. Can anyone please help mit with this? Here the code: <iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/330769192?autoplay=1&loop=1&color=EEEDEB&title=0&byline=0&portrait=0" width="640" height="360" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; fullscreen; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> Many thanks! Sibylle
  11. Is there a way to place vertical videos side by side in the gallery page for the flatiron template in 7.0? Thanks for any thoughts. Maybe a padding edit to the embedded code?
  12. A black line shows up on the border of my video. Sometimes it disappears. Sometimes it appears or reappears on either side of the video depending on mobile, ipad, or computer format. How do I fix this? I exported the video from iMovie at 1920 x 1080p. And then upload it to Wistia. Then linked it to my website. Not sure why its doing this.
  13. Site URL: https://roadrunner-tuna-ex3b.squarespace.com/home Currently the text is above it but i want it on the actual video, i had it before but for some reason it now shows above and i cant change it back. Password: Test1 Thank you!
  14. Hi all! I'm trying to make a gallery like this website https://jasonhan.com/ For the videos displayed, I love that it shows all videos, and then when you toggle between commercial, narrative, and music video it doesn't load a new page but the boxes shift instead. Is there a best feature to do this in squarespace? Apologies if it's obvious an I've missed it in the forums/templates. Thanks!
  15. Site URL: https://www.recaprabbithole.com/recap/citicorpcenter @tuanphan how do i make the videos full screen on mobile. I want NO white space on the left and right like the screenshot:
  16. Site URL: https://www.troycharbonnet.com/editing Hello, I am new to SquareSpace and I wanted to recreate what the website I provided or close to it. I wanted to have an hover effect over the video thumbnail and have text. This is the website for reference : https://www.troycharbonnet.com/editing Any help ?
  17. Hi there! I'm currently struggling uploading videos and changing the video aspect ratios as I'm trying to post previous TikToks and Instagram reels on to my portfolio website, but every time I upload it it turns into a 16:9 ratio with the blank borders around it. Is there a way to change it through CSS rather than getting the embed code from the social media websites directly since I'm uploading it from my own drive? For reference I'll be uploading into a gallery-like section so I can't have the borders next to each other as there will be 3 videos in 9:16 all next to each other. Thank you!
  18. Site URL: https://www.keystorage.com/video-copy I am currently upgrading to fluid engine and while upgrading I decided to try a different design on my video resources page. While adding some custom code to the pages advanced code section I got everything working the way I would like except for 2 things. 1.) the border around the iframe video is getting cut off in some videos (I will upload photo). 2.) There is some extra padding below the video itself I cannot remove and would like to for this page only (I will include a photo). This page is currently live but not accessible to the public as of right now. Any help would be appreciated.
  19. Site URL: http://www.westofnashvillehomes.com Need some help here. Trying to resize this sites Header Video on Mobile but not having much luck
  20. Site URL: https://www.zachkononov.com/press-media Hi all! I'm trying to embed a YouTube video to my website with a URL that starts the video at a specific timestamp. I pulled the URL from the YouTube video at that specific timestamp (2:06), but when I play the embedded video, it always starts at 1:45. On my boyfriend's laptop, it starts at 0:00 sometimes and 1:45 other times. I have changed the URL to different timestamps as a test, and it still always starts at 1:45 or 0:00. The page with the video is here: https://www.zachkononov.com/press-media. The video in question is the second video on the left, at bottom of the page. Regular video URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-sJCxXyHg4 Timestamp video URL: https://youtu.be/4-sJCxXyHg4?t=126
  21. Site URL: https://thedematerialised.com/shop Hello, can somebody advise how we can autoplay and auto loop videos like the site I referenced? Seems by default you can only loop section background videos and not individual video blocks? Thanks in advance! Cyrus
  22. I have a YouTube background video that doesn't look great on mobile. Can I use a completely different YouTube video as the background video on mobile?
  23. Hello, does anyone have the code for taking the player off of videos? Like make them look like they are playing in a background, but they are actually in a video block with no player? THANKS SO MUCH if your have figured this out! LK
  24. Site URL: https://www.nickwaldinger.com/branding Hello, I have several videos being used on my website (linked from Vimeo), but they don't line up flush with pictures above and below them (see screenshot attached). I would like to adjust the padding on all sides of the video to match the pictures above and below it. Here is a link to the page I am referring to specifically: https://www.nickwaldinger.com/branding Thank you!
  25. Site URL: https://mabonstudio.squarespace.com Password: mabon I am using Squarespace's new feature to directly import a video as a backgrounf from my computer, but something is off on mobile devices. The video is loading properly on the Squarespae viewer, but on devices looks as a video itself and not a background... I attached a screenshot from a mobile device and the way it should look (and how it actually looks on Squarespace's editor).
