  1. <video> tag preload attribute handling

    That's a preload tag Modern browsers start downoading a video file before user presses 'play', as an optimization (like buffering) Videos with preload="none" attribute should not be downloaded (and of course not played, also) Maxthon (4.9 and 5.0) downloads immediatly all three videos in the page, before user clicks play in any of them, even if they are marked with preload="none" You can check that from Developer tools, Network tab
  2. <video> tag preload attribute handling

    Right-click on a video, choose 'inspect element' In developer tools, you will be pointed at a <div> tag Just before it, there's the <video> tag: <video id="embed-583699a9897ea812053908_html5_api" class="vjs-tech" poster="https://67.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ognnqnC9jE1ulku67_smart1.jpg" preload="none" muted="" data-crt-video="">

  4. <video> tag preload attribute handling

    example page there are 4 <video> tags pointing to mp4 files they have the attribute preload="none", but the video get downloaded immediatly, without pressing 'play' (see F12 -> Network tab) Please provide a different site for this problem.
  5. By the w3c documentation, if a <video> tag has a preload="none" attribute, the browser should not preload the video Chrome as an example follows this rule, but Maxthon (both 4.9 and 5.0) downloads all the file anyway. In video heavy pages, that kills browser performance (and data caps, also)
