HOVER .gif loading very slowly

Recommended Posts

Hi

https://www.simoneaves.com/home-reshaped-gifs

As I hover over my images they supposed to instantly reveal .gifs, however they are loading excruciatingly slowly. I assume it's because the hidden gifs are not loading as the page loads. 

I cut all the gifs down to <4.5mb (most are around 3mb), and I based this on a similar website in which the gifs are all around 5mb and function in the same way. 

How can I get the page to load faster?

Cheers!!

Problem is the gif file is not load on page load so when hovering it took a while to load the file before it can played

You can try to use this plugin to allow gif play/stop on hover

freezeframe.js (ctrl-freaks.github.io)

I'm very new to CSS etc and I'm embarrassed to say that I don't really understand how to use the plugin you recommended above.
