The gain is not the same as the web component of the original implementation but saves some requests and gives you more control of the embed visual. An "Adaptive Loading" way to handle iframes for YouTube.

;;;const App =<div><LiteYouTubeEmbedid="L2vS_050c-M"title="What’s new in Material Design for the web (Chrome Dev Summit 2019)"/></div>;;
And that's it.
const App =<div><LiteYouTubeEmbedid="L2vS_050c-M" // Default none, id of the video or playlistadNetwork=true // Default true, to preconnect or not to doubleclick addresses called by YouTube iframe (the adnetwork from Google)playlist=false // Use true when your ID be from a playlistposter="hqdefault" // Defines the image size to call on first render as poster image.
