I am using limelight to open a lightbox video on page load, because users need to see this video before they interact with anything on the page. I am having a problem, because the lightbox doesn’t show until the embedded video is loaded, so users are clicking on media on the page before seeing the video.
Can anyone think of any tricks to either get the lightbox to show sooner or prevent users from any page interactions first? When I put an image in, there’s still a slight delay, so they can see the page content before the lightbox appears, but don’t have time to click on anything. The embedded video adds just enough lag to allow that unwanted interaction.
I feel like I need the opposite of lazy preload (which is off). Is there a “driven load” or “type A load” option?
