It loaded for me, just took some time. Videos are generally the heaviest website asset so they can take time to load.


If you're not seeing it load at all, it may be a problem with your browser's cache or cookies. Try opening in an incognito window or another browser to confirm that.


For speed score, if you're referring to the Shopify speed score, 28 is not bad for a functioning site using apps - we usually see stores scoring between 20 - 40 with that tool.


To optimize your site further, here's our recommended approach (we're a team of Shopify optimization experts that have optimized 1500+ Shopify sites):


1) Run your site through the Shopify Analyzer - that's an analysis tool specifically geared for Shopify sites. It will tell you what issues are present and how to fix them.


2) After handling the key optimization issues, do app optimization and preloading to further dial in speed.


For #2 just pass that information to your developer, they should be able to investigate and implement those strategies.

As you can see, when the website is loaded out on the product details page, many picture resources will be loaded simultaneously, causing other requests to be blocked and the page cannot be displayed.Consider lazy-loading offscreen and hidden images after all critical resources have finished loading to lower time to interactive.
