Dynamic Media - disable video preloading?

jenPump

We have a page with mutiple DM videos.  All are using the standard OOB video viewer preset.  It appears that the viewer is trying to preload the first several (20?) seconds of each video which is making the page weight excessive.  Is there a way to disable preload on the viewer? I was not able to find a setting nor any mention in help documentation.

As per the reply from internal folk:

You can overlay the html, where the vedio tag is present and change the preload="metadata". it will take meta info only after that.

<video width="480px" height="270px" controls preload="metadata" controlsList="nodownload"><source src="" type="video/mp4"></video>

Just remember controlsList="nodownload", is used to hide download option. You can remove it as per your need
