Defer YouTube or Vimeo Videos
Divi Nitro has a feature that allows you to defer YouTube videos. What happens is that the video is NOT loaded until the user clicks the play button.
Below is a video and written documentation.
Divi Nitro does not defer YouTube videos automatically - you would need to use our custom module we have created.
Using the Divi Builder, add the module called "Defer YouTube Video".
- Add the preview image you want to be shown before they click play
- Add the YouTube ID. This it the id at the end of the URL of the video. As below the ID would be: 2EEwRh8TpEc
- Save the module.
