Description (last modified by jonoaldersonwp)

Video thumbnail images (those in 'grids layouts') on pages like, and (excluding the video/thumbnail in the hero 'player' element when present) should be loaded more efficiently.


  • The thumbnail should be generated/requested at an appropriate size (160x100)*
  • A loading="lazy" property should be added.
  • Explicit height and width properties should be added.
  • If available, an srcset property should reference a x2 size option (at 320x200).

*E.g.,, which is currently on the homepage, is loaded at 1920x1080, but squashed into a 160x100 space
