This plugin improves page load times as it only loads the YouTube videos preview image on page load. And also provides the option/control to make your video sticky to side(top/bottom) of the window if user scroll away from the video viewport.
– Lazy load videos. No need to worry about complex settings.
– Support multiple videos on single page. Plays only one video at a time. The video will pause if you play other video
– Sticky video to bottom/top if you scroll away from the video
– You can also add your own custom styling.
– Generate shortcode on post/page (WP Editor) by clicking on the icon “LLVASC”. This will show you a popup where you can add your YouTube video ID; Where, “Video ID” is the unique Alphanumeric code present at the end of your YouTube video. For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXGoAj7IEys, where the video id is iXGoAj7IEys. After you add your ID click “Ok”, then the shortcode will be added to your content.
– The shortcode it add to your content is: [lazy-load-videos-and-sticky-control id=”Youtube-video-ID”] on your page/posts/postypes. Hence, [lazy-load-videos-and-sticky-control id=”iXGoAj7IEys”] on you content.
