OSYouTube Pro Now Speeds Up Your YouTube Embeds

Release of OSYouTube OSYouTube Pro 3.3.5

OSYouTube Pro is now blazing fast!

We've created a feature that not only defers loading of JavaScript, but makes it so that the entire video can load after the rest of your page.

This speed improvement makes your pages feel faster and can improve your site's SEO.

How to enable the new speed improvements

First, make sure you're running the latest release of OSYouTube Pro. If you have an active subscription and already have OSYouTube Pro installed, you can update directly from inside your Joomla site. If you don't have OSYouTube yet, download it from your account area.

Then, in your Joomla admin, go to Extensions -> Plugins -> edit your OSYouTube Pro plugin. At the bottom, you'll see a "When to load" option:

Save and close the plugin. The YouTube videos now get loaded after all the other content has loaded. Test a few pages with YouTube videos to see if this feature looks good on your site. That's all there is to it. Congrats!
