I have been editing almost all of my hubs this month and have been making my photos full width. When I have several photos in one capsule, I have been making them into thumbnails so that there will not be too many photos to scroll through for mobile viewers.
I have also been making most of my videos into half-width since I was told that full width videos load slower. Does anyone have information on this? Am I doing the right thing?
I guess, The length of Video should not effect HP page load time because that's a referral link from Google Cloud store. Not the direct link.
Another reason, When we ope HP article video buffering don't start automatically. When someone will click on video then only streaming and buffering will come in picture.
But no. of videos can effect, i think that's also negligible, until its not many videos on same page (At least 5+ on same page).
I can't think of any reason why a video should not be full screen. Google's cloud delivers YouTube vids. Plenty of power there.
I'm with Will - the video is embedded, not actually loaded on the page, so the width is irrelevant.
Yup embedded and shouldn't make a difference to load time. Full width videos are better in my opinion.
Thanks to all of you. I have stopped making my videos half width, since it does not speed up page load time. I think a full width video gives a lot better viewing experience anyway.

It appears that some editors (not all) automatically change all photos to full width when moving a hub to a niche site, even when it makes the hub less appealing in desktop view. Am I correct in thinking that if the hub...

I had a conversation with a new online writer and I realized what I recommended is a bit more specific than I used to be based on what I've seen be successful. I'm in the middle of refreshing several Hubs (150 to...

I just realized that people are using full width images in their hubs again, even at the beginning. The team used to tell us NOT to do that because at the top of the article a photo makes a post take to long to...

Hi everybody - would you mind just clarifying what size the first photograph on your hub should be - is it 800 x 800 pixels? Thank you so much for your help. And, I am really sorry if this is super obvious and there are...
