Is anybody else having problems with youtube video playback?

I built a slider with several Videos (youtube links...). The website has a couple of pictures (all relatively lowres, around 2048 to 3000 pixels) and a few parallax effects. Also every element is animated and appears when you scroll to it for the first time...

It is not optimized for smaller screens yet. Things may look a bit odd on small screens. I am working on a 27" iMac... had these problems on a small macbook pro, too...

Is this already too much for the website to work properly??? No video is playing till the end. After a minute or so the videos stop and the website slows down to nowhere...

Any tips of what to do (or what to get rid of??). This is so sad, because I am happy with the look and behavior of the website...

Hi, @achepa83 thanks for sharing your experience . The website is looking great.

We attempted to recreate the issue on multiple videos with no success.

Please note that although the video player is from Editor X, the video itself is being served from Youtube, issues with playback, video not loading...etc would fall under Youtube's responsibility.

If you have a video of the issue, then we can look into this a bit further, thanks for your help.

Hey Sebi,

did you guys see the video I made for you...?

Here is a video of the issue. I had the same problem on a windows/mozilla combination. Mozilla said "the website is slowing down the computer..." I really don't think this is an youtube or loading issue. It feels more like something with the graphics... possibly with the parallax effect(s)... Video:

Thanks a lot in advance! It's great to have this direct contact with you guys!

One more info: the problem remains even when I turn off the parallax effects...
