Prevent the Youtube iframe from loading automatically
This plugin prevents the automatic load of any YouTube iframe.
At the point where the YouTube video should be shown, a placeholder is loaded. It should open a connection to YouTube when a visitor clicks on the placeholder.
Thus, at best, blocks communication to the Google servers before the user explicitly wishes to do so (by clicking on the placeholder and loading it).
Beautifully swap Youtube iframes with a placeholder
- Block the iframe-loading without generating ugly gaps.
- Fully customizable CSS Classes for the placeholder.
- No setup required, no changes on your Youtube iframes.
- No branding necessary, no links to other websites.
Are your visitors protected?
- Informed the user that a connection to Google/YouTube is being established.
- Youtube videos can be blocked by the visitor. This can prevent the communication with a Google Server.
