Pre-load embedding video on website before start

Feb 06, 2014

Q: Hi.

I'm back to testing again and I can see that on a test site I now have the <keyw id=1/> running but it seems as if it has to load the whole video before it will play. Is this any help in finding a resolution??

My best regards. Thanks.

A: Some video files have "control info" in the middle or at the end. So, they should be
pre-loaded (partly or completely) before will start the playing.

In your case file should be pre-loaded completely.

So, you can:

1) Convert your files into .flv or .mp4 format (use "mp4 quick start" option). Control info will be moved in the beginning of file and video will start the playing immediately.

2) <keyw id=0/> to VideoLightBox gallery from hostings (Youtube, Vimeo, etc.). When you add video on hosting, file will be converted into suitable format (with control info in the
beginning of file) automatically. So, you'll not have problems with VideoLightBox gallery.
