I can’t figure out why this is the case, but YouTube videos in a popup on Chrome play very choppy and laggy. It drops lots of frames, playing back probably at about 5fps, and the video is also about a half second behind the audio.
It’s odd, because the popup videos play perfectly in both Safari and Firefox — it’s just in Chrome where they’re choppy.
Is this something that can be fixed in a future release?
In the meantime, do you have any suggestion for how to fix this temporarily?
Okay, I did figure it out.
In CSS, on the .da-overlay-visible .da-overlay class, I disabled:
backdrop-filter: saturate(180%) blur(5px);
After that, the video played smoothly.
I’m fine not having a blurred background as long as the videos play smoothly.
In a future update, it might be good to add a toggle to control whether or not the background behind the popup is blurred. Either that, or maybe there’s another way to blur the background which doesn’t have such a significant performance hit on Chrome.
Great plugin, by the way!
