Dear Readers, I am a novice to RW I’ve created about 3 websites and have the basic understanding of how this works. With that said, I have been having issues with loading speed of my video section. Background, I am photographer/video guy and wanted to have 12 or videos 5 min or less on this page. I have scaled all the videos to 650x360 pixels in mp4 and a second version in webm.
I’ve tried hosting the videos on my shared hosting company and Amazon s3, however, the videos are very slow to load (meaning the front page is taking a long time to load). I don’t understand what causes slow downs other than I’m on a shared hosting site but if anyone has knowledge I’d appreciate it.
If it matters, I am using Nick Cates IRIS template and Will’s Stacks4stacks (player) to handle the videos.
I have a free vimeo account and if any of you use that let me know…
