Do Shoppable Videos Affect My Page Speed?

No, and here's how we protect your page speed:

1. Small-sized scripts. Videowise's scripts have little over 100kb, that's almost like a Facebook pixel. In comparison, when you embed a regular YouTube video that's over 600kb of scripts.

2. Lite video embedding (Shopify Plus recommended). Videowise uses compressed thumbnails as part of the video widgets on your pages that launch the actual shoppable video player.

On the initial page load, the site only embeds the thumbnail image of the YouTube video. The video player itself (and all its extra JavaScript) only loads when the user clicks inside the thumbnail.
