Page unresponsive while loading many youtube videos

5 posts in this topic

Problem:

Opening any page with many embedded youtube videos (f.e. livejournal friends feed) Maxthon waiting until ALL of the videos is embedded so it's may take about 10-15 seconds even on the fast machines. Page can't be scrolled via mouse or keyboard.

 

Suggestion:

Show placeholders and allow to scroll page and read any other information while embed video on the fly.

Hi,

Thanks for your question.

It works fine on my side.

Does the same thing still happening on your side?

Please let me know about this if it keeps the same.

Yes, it's always the same. Page with many (about 10-15) EMBEDDED youtube videos completely unresponsive while all videos in process of embedding.

1. Page loaded fast

2. Maxthon's status bar shows "Loading... http://www.youtube.com/embed/..............."and counts all videos on page

3. While this videos is loaded page is unresponsive

 

Once again: it's happened only on pages with many EMBEDDED videos. If I open www.youtube.com - there are NO problems because only previews of videos. If I open my livejournal friends feed (I do not want to show an address. If you need - I can sent via private message) page is stuck.

If you feel some Youtube embed video on a website is so annoying, you can try some of the workaround below.

  1. Go to settings advanced and uncheck the Allow all sites to run plug-ins
  2. Install the Flashblock extension to block flash content.
  3. Simply add some blocking rule on adblock, eg
||youtube.com/embed/*
||youtube.com/watch?v=*
||googlevideo.com

I don't feel so :)

It's my friends feed and it's ok to have many interesting videos.

I just want to have ability to scroll page while videos is embedded.

BTW: I want to thank Maxthon for independent tabs. While LJ page is unresponsive all other tabs working fine!
