Faster video loading speed

Postby dyn » Fri Jun 03, 2011 14:37 UTC

Threads like "Now Playing" can sometimes load slow, even closing them is slower. This is because each video loads its own flash player, so it can slow down page load/close times, and it uses much more resources than normal pages. I improved this today with special code to load thumbnails instead of videos -- just like looking at pics! -- and when you click on it, video will play. :)

Thumbnails have no description, so it is best if you let others know about the artist / track title. You can use bold+center (bc /bc) tag, Like this:


Dragostea din tei - opera version



:-D
Syntax used:
Code: Select all
[bc]Dragostea din tei - opera version[/bc]
[youtube]MZ3lXZT7PFY[/youtube]


Video thumbs are enabled for YouTube, DailyMotion and Metacafe. I will add Google Video and MySpace Video later, but they do not have direct access to thumbnails, so it will be generic picture.
