The default embed block for Youtube videos sucks. It slows down your site. The more videos on the page the more it slow. This single-block plugin fixes that.
Why this block is better than the default one:
- Instead of loading the entire iframe, only the video thumbnail is loaded, resulting in significant performance improvements
- Automatically load the video title as the caption
- The same UI as the default core/embed, and you can use the video title as the caption of the block with one click
- It can be transformed from/to the core embed block.
Please check out this page to see how fast it helps. The page contains around 30 embedded Youtube videos but they don’t slow down the page.
