I'm may be missing an extra step. I'm using ScrollTrigger on a page with a Youtube embed. The inspector > network displays 100s of these requests that are taking up loading time (see attached). My codepen demonstrates this (though not as extreme).


Am I missing a precaution mixing these things (ScrollTrigger + Youtube)?

That's because pinning requires that ScrollTrigger wrap your pinned element with a pin-spacer <div> and whenever there's a .refresh(), it must REMOVE all pin-spacers and implement things again top-to-bottom in order to ensure the proper flow of everything and CSS styles are maintained. If you've got an <iframe> in the pinned element, browsers reload that when the element is reparented. 


Solution: define your own pinSpacer element so that ScrollTrigger doesn't have to create its own and reparent anything:
