Top 7 JavaScript Video Projects

  • vanilla-lazyload

    LazyLoad is a lightweight, flexible script that speeds up your website by deferring the loading of your below-the-fold images, backgrounds, videos, iframes and scripts to when they will enter the viewport. Written in plain "vanilla" JavaScript, it leverages IntersectionObserver, supports responsive images and enables native lazy loading.

    Project mention: Beginners Guide to Web Performance: Optimizing Images | | 2021-09-06

    If you want to guarantee lazy-load across all (JavaScript-capable) browsers and not just images, I've used Vanilla Lazyload a couple years ago with success, but as this relies on using a data-src attribute, you will get W3C validation errors unless you also set a src attribute. But you don't want to set the src to a real image, because this will nullify the whole point of using the plugin, so set it to a 1x1 pixel "image" that will immediately get replaced by the data-src once the image scrolls into view.

  • FreeTube

    If youtube is what you need then lemme introduce you to this gem: freetube. It's an amazing privacy respecting 3rd party client for youtube (even listed on privacyguides). You can login to Google Takeout (just search on duckduckgo, should be the the top searches) to export all your youtube subscriptions.

  • jellyfin-web

    Web Client for Jellyfin

    Project mention: Extremely slow Jellyfin startup? | | 2022-01-22

    What I meant was I thought jellyfin might have (for whatever reason) thought there was no metadata for your content and was going out to the internet to re-download all the thumbnails, descriptions, cover art, etc for all of your content, just as if this was your first time installing. Jellyfin's options are to "Scan for new and updated files", "Search for missing metadata" and "Replace all metadata" (found by clicking the three dots on any movie/tv show and clicking 'Refresh metadata'. It kind of feels like it's doing a 'refresh all metadata' each time you startup. I don't see anywhere in the admin dashboard where this option can be set but looking at an old git issue ( it looks like jellyfin-web/src/components/refreshdialog/refreshdialog.js stores which behavior is default. Anyway have a look at that issue and check the line in the file listed in that issue. Perhaps somehow your jellyfin is stuck on 'refresh all metadata'?

  • youtube-local
