Hey, did anyone make a solution on this? I know the discussion is referring to the video element usage within Webflow, but for a whole host of reasons that’s simply not practical…
So I have a element pulling in a Vimeo clip, which works fine. When I do an asset load test on the desktop version, there’s 1.3mb of data for the page, load time 2.37s.
I then have the video HTML embed code (and container) set to no visibility from tablet down, and have a slideshow in its place. Which works fine — except for the video in the embed code is being DOWNLOADED to the device memory every time.
When I do an asset download test on mobile, despite the video link not being there (and it’s a simple embed, remember, not a video element in WF), there’s 20mb data and a load time anywhere from 15 to 37 seconds…!
This site is just about to go live (Hawaii time, I’m in Munich) and this is the last item preventing launch. Every time I review on my phone, I have a 10-20 second wait on the homepage for the slideshow, because it’s downloading the movie in the background…
Hoping someone can assist. The share link is below:
Homepage background video embed (HTML) works fine desktop, is turned off for tablet and mobile yet those are in fact downloading the full 20mb of the embed movie before showing the page.
