DMS 2 Slow Video Load Time


Question

Posted · Report post

I was curious why our video is loading so slow on our site we are working on http://pharmacistrecruitersusa.com/

When its finally up and running it runs smooth, but until it loads it just a blank white screen. This is just a sample video as well, low quality. Its going to take forever to load when we get a better quality video in place of it.

 

So why is it taking so much time to load?

Is there a program or settings you suggest to make the video load quicker?

 

I used after effects to render out my mp4 and then used a convertor for the webm and ogg

Hi,

 

You will most certainly need to reduce the file size and in doing so will increase the load time. For example, one file is over 15mb which is just to large. I know our team used an application called Handbrake to optimize the video when testing the functionality.

I haven't ever needed to look further into this, as I don't really use videos on websites, but I did a quick search for you and found this guide, which may assist you.

You will likely also want to use a CDN, if you plan on using high quality videos, I would recommend MAXCDN.
