[Pro] HTML5 Video Loops

Hi and thanks in advance for any tips.

I have been seeing more and more HTML5 video loops and would love to implement some through Freeway. The quality of these are amazing from what I’ve seen and it seems like a great alternative to a dedicated video player or looping GIFs.

Any suggestions on an easy implementation or is it something more complex?

I have linked a recent example from the nytimes travel section.

Thanks again,
RJ

Getting a looping HTML5 video in Freeway is pretty easy: Working with HTML5 Video in Freeway 6 and 7 - Freeway - Softpress Talk

However, there is a catch. GIFs are big (file-size-wise), but videos are in an entirely different definition of huge. The NYT article that you shared is using some form of lazy loader so that the videos don’t actually load until they are visible. This would require some JS know-how to accomplish.

Thank you for pointing out the link. Very helpful. Lazy Loader is what I was missing.

I had been implementing the Videos as HTML objects using the Extended options and the tag. However It seems dragging in a video is preferred/easier.

Thanks again-
