When the same video is called many times in a loop, the performance or response time of SWITCHtube could become somewhat slow. This could happen for example when a video is placed in a banner or carousel of a web page with autoplay turned on. The slow performance is causing the thumbnails of other videos to load with some delay or not at all.
In order to keep the traffic to our video stream servers low, please add the appendix ?intent=kiosk to your video whenever such a video is used in a loop or carousel on a web page. The video is then kept in special cache memory and slow read requests to the servers will be avoided.
An embed code to a video would then become for example: https://tube.switch.ch/embed/84870068?intent=kiosk
or - if the video should automatically start whenever it is called: https://tube.switch.ch/embed/84870068?autoplay&intent=kiosk
