Support » Plugin: WP Fastest Cache » Elementor Background Video not playing

    Hi there,

    on the bottom of my page i integrated a background video with elementor. The video is sometimes loading, sometimes not when caching is enabled. When caching is disabled it always loads.

    Did anyone experience this before or how can this be excluded?

    Thanks, Tom

    After it stops working, does it work again? Or does it no longer work after it stops working?

    When clearing browser cache it works, when reloading the page 2-3 times after that it stops working (and no longer works afterwards).
    When clearing browser cache it works again for the first load.
    Thanks, Tom

    you can disable the “Browser Caching” option of wp fastest cache then.

    Hi @emrevona ,

    I think I found out why it’s not loading. It’s not the browser caching, but the lazy load feature. I added the background-video URL to the excluded resources – but it looks like it’s not working.
    Any suggestions?

    Best, Tom

    is the problem solved when you disable the “lazy load” feature and clear all cache?

    yes, correct. Looks like the lazy load is not compatible with the elementor background video feature?

    you can exclude the source as below instead of disabling the lazy load option completely.

    @emrevona thats what i did – i excluded the full url as well as the file name of the video.
    I thought the lazyload is only working for images, not for videos.
    Guess i have to search for another lazyload alternative then – thanks
