    well, wp youtube lyte’s aim is not to delay the page rendering and as such it loads the thumbnails after (almost) all other items (JS, CSS, images, fonts, …) have finished loading (as you can see in the waterfall chart in this test I ran on your URL). so this actually is expected behavior, which should improve if/ when you succeed in making “the other stuff” more performant as well 🙂

    hope this clarifies,

    wow! Thanks Frank!! Your support is exceptional

    Dear Frank,

    I’m also worried for same thing.

    When page completely finished loading, then thumbnail appear..
    I think, in meanwhile people don’t wait but they directly click on YouTube Link and leave my site. But, I want people stay and see video while being active on my site instead of going to YouTube.

    Performance wise, this his plugin is awesome and very easy to use. Just, It would be great, if thumbnail load will quickly, or if it says “Loading…” before appearing thumbnail

    Regards,

    that indeed is how it works, idea being that nothing of the lyte player should delay the content (page) rendering. as soon as the page has finished loading (and if you have a lot of … stuff, then that could take a while) the lyte-js kicks in and loads the images. try cutting down on “stuff” maybe? 😉

    well, you could disable the option to show the youtube-link? 🙂

    As far in my knowledge, except jQuery all are in ASYNC/Defer mode. I have only 3 heavy objects at post page.
    Adsense ad units, twitter platform js, & Facebook sharing counts js. All are in async mode, and page also load fast.. there is no problem..

    Specially, I get shocked when I see that even after seeing Adsense Ad (which is in async mode), then I see the YT thumbnail in very last. Means, when browser loader completely stop, then finally I get.

    For instance, yeah Disabling YouTube Link is a nice solution, but I don’t want that as it is for their convenience as secondary option. (Suppose, If they don’t like to wait or do copy-the-link). I’m afraid, either they will return back or not, or they may lost in glorious Youtube.com 😀

    Mostly, I’m afraid for these 2 conditions.
    1. If my video exist in above the fold. Probably, they will see just YT link in plain text.
    2. If they are on bit slow connection.

    For all these issue, I think one solution is better..

    If we could show “Loading…” in center of dark black background. I hope, it will make some patience sense to reader..

    Because, firstly as possible I did favor for them to show DOM earliest as possible as 😀
    So, I expect, if I will show ‘Loading…’ message then they will wait
    🙂
    Till I’m afraid, because I don’t know how to make this possible
