    Hello Guys

    I am noticing every time I embed a youtube video on any blog post it becomes slow on mobile

    Desktop Google Speed report 98
    Mobile Google speed report 60

    If I embed more than one video the speed on that particular blog post drop even more.
    I have tried decreasing the width and that helps a little but not enough. I have tested different videos but have the same result.

    I currently have two posts with videos and looking to fix this issue.

    Can you advice where to look to fix this issue

    I only have 5 plugins installed and have GP Premium 1.11.3 and GenerateBlocks 1.1.2

    Google speed report is showing

    Hi,

    That’s the default WordPress video/embed blocks behavior. By default, it loads all the embedded scripts as shown in the report.

    To improve pagespeed scores, you may have to find a way to lazy load your embedded video so they will only load when it’s in viewport.

    Perhaps this plugin may help.

    Let us know if it works for you.
