Nils Posted March 12, 2020 Share Posted March 12, 2020 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 . Link to comment
