Bug Description

Mahara 1.8

Hi All,
I have a mahara page with Mahara support videos embedded from youtube.
The page has about 12 videos and takes ages to load.

I have 11 of the video blocks collapsed and one open - hoping that the retracted ones wouldn't load until opened.

However even though the blocks are automatically retracted Mahara pre-loads all the blocks - and I'm hoping we can investigate the option of not loading automatically retracted blocks until the user expands them.

This wishlist item would be a cool strategy people could use to speed up page load times for heavy/intensive pages.

Hi Shane,

I think this would be a great idea. Only loading content when we need it would indeed speed things up.

I give this idea a +1

Allow auto-retracted external video blocks to delay load (Bug #1300544)

Currently all block data is loaded on page load - but blocks that are
auto-retracted should wait and only load data when one click on their
arrow toggle.

Currently got externalmedia using iframe to handle this delay loading.
