    Not necessarily...

    Depends on a number of factors.

    The viewer's own machine, based on his or her CPU, RAM, etc. His or her own Internet connection speed also is significant (makes sense since a 50Mbit connection downloads more of any Internet service than a 5Mbit).

    It also depends on the size of the photos and vids. It may be best just to put a notice stating the vids/photos may slow down users with slow machines and/or Internet connections.

    Technically yes . Any site that has large number of images or videos getting loaded in page , will be heavier then rest of the sites containing lesser images and videos.
    There are then several ways to further increase the site speed which is different scenario (optimizing images , videos , CDN's etc)

    From what I know.. The answer is - Yes.
    I generally don't like to wait for page to load. If it takes too long, I will leave.
    I also don't like sales page that only consist video. I hate to wait for it to load. I will leave too.
    I prefer to read.

    What you mean by too many images? how many images are loading at a time?
    If those are not optimized with proper size and dimensions then it can be a reason!

    Here's some possible ways to fix it up:

    Use right dimensions,
    Try to decrease sizes (ask me if you need more clarification on it)
    There are some sort of plugins available to maximize loading speed
    Also you can remove unused plugins which can be a big issue
    And finally, you can clean up unnecessary code and scripts from the coding window.

    I'd recommend you try out tools.pingdom.com and see if you can isolate problems in load time for your site. Check if a CDN would help in your case.

    Well yes. The more space your website takes up the longer it will load, however with the current age of "everyone has broadband internet" that doesn't make too much of a difference. More often than not, loading speeds will be determined by the user's computer and your websites hosting provider.

    There is a problem that some people still have slow devices. It may cause by technical disadvantages or flooding the empty memory space by owner's hand. Also it is said and known that provider may "help" you to download web page slowly. There is a big diference when using different web browsers.

    Yes. It takes a time to load if there is bulk of Images and videos are exist on webpage.
    But there is one solution to overcome this problem.
    Don't start video automatically.
    And for images, don't fetch it with page data. But use JQuery and fetch it after page loading is completed.
    So your first your page load it short time, then images will come as per internet speed.

    Sure it takes more time to load, but as devices are getting more and more advanced, it matters less.
