Last updated: May 21, 2023
Hi, while using NextJS with sanity I am facing performance issue as I add YouTube video in sanity text editor and then render it on website using ReactPortable Text Package.

Is there any better way to render the YouTube video so it don't affects the overall blogpage performence?
In RichComponents.tsx file I rendering video like this:

import YouTubeEmbed from "./YouTubeEmbed";
import getYouTubeID from "get-youtube-id";

export const RichTextComponents = {
  types: {
    image: ({ value }: any) => {
      return (
        <div className="relative w-full h-96 m-10 mx-auto">
            alt="Blog Post Image"
    youtube: ({ value }: any) => {
      const id = getYouTubeID(value.url);
      return id ? <YouTubeEmbed id={id} /> : null;

<YouTubeEmbed id={id} />
is a custom component that I have created

// YouTubeEmbed.tsx
import React from "react";

type YouTubeEmbedProps = {
  id: string;

const YouTubeEmbed: React.FC<YouTubeEmbedProps> = ({ id }) => (
  <div className="youtube-player mt-8 mb-8 justify-center flex">
      title="YouTube video player"
      allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"

export default YouTubeEmbed;

Might be best to ask in the nextjs channel as this seems more like a Next.js question, not a Sanity issue.
