Hi Alex, I look forward to reading the article. To load the videos only
when needed, you could take a screenshot of video and use that as the image
on the page. You could have a javascript click event that replaces the
image HTML with the <video> tag.  That's the first idea that came to mind.
I don't know if javascript is an option
