Loading gif for html5 videos
A Former User last edited by
Just wondering if there's a way to use a looping gif as a loading icon for html5 videos? I'm using a very low res video for my reel atm, and I'd like to go bigger with a short loading animation to let folks know something tasting is loading.
A great example of something I'm thinking is here - https://altcinc.com/
Many Thanks & love your work!

Unfortunately this is not possible from the standard options provided,
However if you have have a basic understanding of HTML, CSS & JS you can fairly easily implement this onto your page through the "+ More - HTML" option within the Gridder -
Alternatively you can use "Custom CSS & HTML" in "Lay Options"
Adding a Video through Custom Code:
With this option you have much more flexibility over how you control the video along with options to add a loading Gif:
For more information regarding CSS:
Also if using jQuery, to replace the shorthand symbol '$' to 'jQuery'
If this becomes too problematic you may wish to seek the aid of a developer.
I once again apologise that the option isn't as easy and that i cannot help further with Customisation,
however if you have any further questions please feel free to ask :)
Best Wishes and thank you for using Lay Theme
Try this to fix issues before you post:
Use the Search Feature. Maybe there is already a solution to your issue.
1. Update Lay Theme and all Lay Theme Addons
2. Disable all Plugins
3. Go to Lay Options → Custom CSS & HTML, click "Turn Off All Custom Code ", click "Save Changes"
4. Now see if your problem solved itself
5. Go here, see if your problem is listed here:
When you post:
1. Post a link to where the problem is
2. If the problem is difficult to explain, post screenshots / link to a video to explain it
