Video/image is breaking the browser

Hello, I'm using local mp4 and png files in my React project. When I add these files, it appears to be effecting my browser. It freezes the developer toolbar and won't allow me to open the responsive views. When I remove the media files and restart the server, the browser works as expected. Do you have any suggestions how to get better result from my media files? Thank you for your time. Best, Killeon.

import React, { useState, useEffect } from 'react';
import axios from 'axios';
import '../video.css';

function VideoHold () {



  return(

I can't say that it's behaviour I've ever noticed before from adding media in HTML.

Could you post the code you've been trying to use to make it work and we'll see if we can get to the bottom of why that might be happening. Thanks. :)

Hello Jonathan,

Thank you for your response. I got the browser to respond like I expected, but it sometimes takes refreshing. On Microsoft Edge it works as expected every time. I think maybe the size of the video files might be too big and causing it to act funny? I have experienced other errors because of that reason. That's why I think that.

I did edit the code above to show my React and CSS code, if you did have time to look it over. Either way, thank you for your time.

Best, Killeon
