You can't imagine how fantastic job Smartvideo can perform expediting the video load speed on your website. You can embed Youtube, Vimeo, self-hosted or other videos directly using their plugin that supports Divi builder, Elementor, Beaver Builder and Gutenberg page builders. Try it yourself and love it 🙂

Before Swarmify, I avoided linking out to YouTube and Vimeo and embedding videos on my pages. Now, it's my preferred method because Swarmify changes the whole user experience to something I'm proud of! And it's super-simple to add to WordPress sites - no modifying any links - just add the plug-in and it's done.
