Will the widget affect page loading time?

Learn more about the widget and how it affects page loading time

The widget itself only has a slight effect on the total loading time of a page. The main cause of any lag is due to the YouTube code, which affects the loading time even if videos are embedded directly to a product page, instead of the widget.

If you feel  your loading time is not optimal, you can choose the faster option of loading the YouTube player inside the Videoly widget. There are currently three options available:

  1. Default - the YouTube player is preloaded for every product page that currently has a Videoly widget
  2. Every product page - the YouTube player is preloaded for every product page
  3. After click - the YouTube player starts loading only when a user clicks on the Videoly widget's thumbnail
