Support » Plugin: Lazy Load for Videos » Request to ytimg.com

  • Hi,

    I noticed that a YouTube embedded video using Lazy Load for Videos still calls YouTube in ytimg.com domain, for getting the static/background image.

    Is this supposed to happen? If so, is there any way to disable? I wish my readers never contact/be contacted by YouTube/Google.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi,

    you can change what video previews look like by updating the “Thumbnails/Patterns” option on the plugin’s admin page. If you change it to one of the patterns or select “none”, there will no longer be a preview image and therefore no call to Youtube. Does this work for you?

    There’s currently no feature built into the plugin that would allow you to upload a custom preview image and thereby circumvent the call to Youtube.
