    Hello everyone!
    Please tell me how to make lazy loading for video?
    Those. so that it loads only after you click on it. Before that, just a black screen.

    Which are written in the video tag:
    <div class="video-block">
        <video id="my-player" class="video-js" controls data-setup='{}'>
            <source src="./video/blum/2.mp4" type="video/mp4"></source> 

    Everywhere only for iframe I found .. maybe there is some kind of library?
    Videojs player used for video
    but I didn't find anything like it there

    Something like this:

    <div onclick="this.querySelector('source').setAttribute('src', this.querySelector('source').getAttribute('data-src')); this.removeAttribute('onclick');" class="video-block">
    <video id="my-player" class="video-js" controls data-setup='{}'>
    <source data-src="./video/blum/2.mp4" type="video/mp4"></source>

    When clicked, the src attribute will be added, the content of which would be taken from data-src. This is a simple option in the forehead, but of course it is somewhat wrong, in the mind all the scripts should be taken out, and not written inline.
