Suggestions to optimise Vimeo video players - John Clegg - 08-13-2014 10:01 AM

Hi

Does anyone have any recommendations on how to load Vimeo videos in the most efficient way?

We're using the Universal embed code from Vimeo .eg

<iframe src="//player.vimeo.com/video/VIDEO_ID" width="WIDTH" height="HEIGHT" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>

(http://developer.vimeo.com/player/embedding)

This seems to load a lot of peripheral requests that get included by using the universal player.

We have a responsive site and we want the videos to load faster.

I can find a lot of info on how to load youtube videos in an optimised way but not lot of info on how to optimise Vimeo loading.

Any suggestions or links would be appreciated !

Cheers

JC
