The Test | How Fast Is Your Video Player?

Previously, you have heard us discuss the player speed and the role it can play in both user experience and search engine optimization.

Today we would like to advise on how to properly conduct a player speed test via Google’s PageSpeed Insights. Many of you may know how your player ranks but for those who are curious and would like to find out, follow the simple steps below.

1) Find an iframe embed code for your player & extract the URL from it.

Example:

<iframe src=”https://player-docs.adnium.com/demo/” frameborder=”0″ width=”560″ height=”315″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen></iframe>

Becomes:

https://player-docs.adnium.com/demo/

2) Visit Google’s PageSpeed insight page at the following URL & input your embed URL.

https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/

Give it a test and see how your player stacks up!
