Installation for ember-cli 0.1.5 - 0.2.2

$ ember install:addon ember-lazy-video

ember-lazy-video is a simple component and service that deals with lazy loading of videos from specified providers.


ember-lazy-video currently supports lazy loading videos from Youtube, Vimeo and Instagram. Usage in your app is as simple as passing the video's url into a lazy-video component:

{{lazy-video url=""}}

{{lazy-video url=""}}

{{lazy-video url=""}}

You can add a custom poster image by setting the poster attribute:

{{lazy-video url="" poster="images/poster.jpg"}}


Please read the Contributing guidelines for information on how to contribute.

The goal and scope of the component is simple – be really good at lazy loading videos. This means being able to lazy load videos from any provider. The component should also be customizable to a certain degree: for example, being able to change the play button style/template, or being able to pass in their own thumbnail. Customization does not entail changing the functionality of the component, although it is possible we could abstract this out (in a separate repo) so that it could lazy load any element.
