Video element uses an innovative optimization technique. It provides a smart way for embedding YouTube, Vimeo videos to your page without sacrificing page speed.

Following key features makes the element unique –

  • Loading Time Optimization – element embeds the thumbnail image of the YouTube/ Vimeo video instead of the actual video.
  • Custom Thumbnail Image – Set a nice thumbnail image for video with overlay color.
  • Play Button Customizations ( Supports Image, Icon ) – Set icon or image as a play button with hover animations.

Here is a comparison between page speed – Embedding video with Traditional way vs Embedding video with Video element.

Make sure to activate the Video Element from dashboard settings. From the dashboard navigate to Ultimate > Modules and turn on the toggle for Video.

The element allows embedding video from YouTube and Vimeo.
