Aimy Video Embedder PRO

Introduction

Video Players & Gallery, GDPR

Aimy Video Embedder allows you to embed videos from YouTube and Vimeo in your articles and at module positions.


It is easy to set up, customize and use. Various options can be set for the embedded videos, depending on the video service used (i.e. width and height).

The PRO version additionally supports:

  • responsive video embedding
  • setting options per video
  • individual sizes per video
  • lazy loading of videos
  • two-click mode (EU privacy mode) With the EU privacy mode, a placeholder is shown instead of the video. The visitor has to click to load the video. This way no data is transferred automatically and you get the chance to inform the visitor about your privacy policy.

Information on the two-click mode

What is the problem with video embedding and the GDPR?

According to the GDPR (EU privacy law) users have to agree to collecting
personal data. The IP address is a personal date and is transferred by the
visit of the website.
If you embed videos - for example from YouTube - you additionally send
data to YouTube. As in this case the data is transferred to a third
party
, data protectors think, it is best to inform the user before
transfering the data.

Besides that video plattforms use cookies. Usually, even if your user does
not watch the video, cookies are already set just when visiting the page.

GDPR friendly embedding

One possibility to embed videos GDPR friendly is to use a
two-click solution:
Instead of loading content from the video platform, a placeholder is shown
that additionally gives the possibility to inform about it.

A second option for the video platform YouTube is to
use the privacy-enhanced mode.
With this mode, the video is provided from a different server
(youtube-nocookie.com).
This way, YouTube does not set a cookie to your user's browser.
At least not if the user does not watch the video but only visits the website.

In any case to be compliant to the GDPR, you have to add a paragraph on
using videos from YouTube or another platform in your privacy statement.

Information on video lazy loading

If videos are embedded on a website they usually cause longer loading times.
To keep your website fast and increase page speed, you can use
lazy loading for videos.

Lazy loading means that the video is not loaded directly when the page is
visited. It is only loaded on demand when the user scrolls to it.

This way the initital loading time is optimized and helps to improve
your website performance and usability.

To use lazy loading for videos on your website, just activate the feature
in the plugin options.

Please note that this feature is not necessary if the two-click mode is
enabled. With the two-click mode the video is not loaded anyway until the
placeholder is clicked.
