This plugin improves page load times and increases your Google PageSpeed Score. It replaces embedded Youtube and Vimeo videos with a clickable preview image. By loading videos only when the user clicks on the preview image, no unnecessary JavaScript is loaded. Especially on sites with many embedded videos this will make your visitors happy. Additionally, all Youtube videos are loaded in a privacy-enhanced mode using the “https://www.youtube-nocookie.com” embed URL.

Some additional features: Display video titles on preview images Pre-roll and post-roll advertisements: Convert all videos into a playlist and automatically add your corporate video, product teaser or another video advertisement to every video. (Great for branding and video ads!) Hide annotations such as “subscribe to channel” to avoid distractions Add custom CSS via the plugin’s admin panel Choose custom colour for your Vimeo player Hide controls from Youtube player Hide information like the video title and uploader when the video starts playing Even lazy load videos in text widgets (Youtube only) Choose between thumbnail sizes (standard or cover) Choose from several play button styles Choose the traditional red or the alternative white progress bar for the Youtube video player Don’t show related videos at the end of your videos Works with WordPress Multisite and...
