XT YouTube Optimizer
XT YouTube Video Optimizer detects all Youtube players in a page and replaces them with the default video image, that can be clicked to play the original video player.
XT YouTube Optimizer for Joomla! is a port of "A Better Method for Embedding YouTube Videos on your Website" (Amit Agarwal).
XT YouTube Video Optimizer detects all Youtube players in a page and replaces them with the default video image, that can be clicked to play the original video player. In this way, the page only loads the image associated with each video, instead of loading, by default, all the heavy video iframes.
