Youtube embedding

Dear SiteJeters,

I have a little problem, with the Youtube-element.

When I use the youtube tool in SiteJet, and in the URL field, I enter the code that Youtube tells me to “share” the video.

Then I see the video with the start-image at first, but the preview image does not appear after saving the page.

For better understanding here the link:

Only one preview image is shown. I do not understand why?

Can anyone help me?

Hi @Frank_Joerns,

could you please check if lazyload is active for the video? If yes, then please turn it of and test it again. Maybe this will help.

Lazyload is active! The only video that shows a preview image was the first video that I had placed on the page. I do not know if these made a difference?

Lazyload do not help.

Hi @Frank_Joerns

you can also try to set or change the video thumbnail directly at YouTube as explained in Add video thumbnails - YouTube Help

Let us know if that helped.

I have noticed lazyloading on youtube videos actually turns off the preview image. Is this proper?


@zachary , ahhhh thank a lot. I missunderstood Martins message. I thought I should make sure that Lazyload is active, but he meant it exactly the other way around.

Now that I’ve turned it off, it works.

Thanks for your help.
