Support » Plugin: Product Video Gallery for Woocommerce » Slow loading from youtube

  • Resolved fogush



    All of sudden, many products on my site started to load super slowly – more than 20 seconds. As I can see in the dev tools, this comes from youtube videos added by the plugin. It happens randomly, for example, only after the third refresh the requests are slowed down. So to reproduce it you’d need to go through some random products with a video in the gallery. That’s a drastical change in page load 🙁

    Do you know what can cause this?

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

  • Hello fogush, Hello Nikhil,

    I have the same problem, randomly the products having a video in the gallery, take 15 seconds to completely load the requests related to Youtubes & Video Gallery. This can be harmful for SEO and user experience.

    Thanks for your help,

    Hello @fogush and @hgo44 ,

    For the YouTube video, lazy loading is enabled for pagespeed and SEO. You can check our demo site in gtmetrix or any other page speed testing tool.

    @fogush I’ve checked your site and found your server response time is too slow. So it is creating an issue.

    Thank You.

    @nikhilgadhiya thanks for the response.

    I’ve cleared the cache recently and not every page was re-cached, so probably you opened some of these pages. With the cache in place, the server response time is low (up to 300ms). However, the issue is still there and I found a way to replicate: a normal page reload after a hard reload. Also, I recorded a video to show what I mean:

    I’m pretty sure I’m not experiencing anything like this with videos from youtube on the other sites across the Internet.

    Do you have any idea whether it can be related with the way the videos are embedded?
