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.

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.
