This is related to Stream: The embed code used to insert into a separate file is a very common approach to embed videos on other pages. But when many videos are embedded on a page, it causes a significant delay in page load times. This is an effect that is common with all streaming services, not just Stream.


Can you help me determine if there is a way to do a "light embed" where just the thumbnail loads initially, and not all of the overhead involved in the player queuing up the videos? Below is a link that apparently works for YouTube embeds. I've tried it on Stream and it doesn't seem to work. But I suspect that there might be a syntax that does work for Stream.
