I looked at the help file, tried a search, and I cannot find how to embed video in a post ?
Once the video is embeded, how does one get the video image preview in the frontpage?
I think the option is in the ‘Add featured media’ options when you attach an image or video (under the text input panel). You can set it to embed the uploaded content as a video. I’m assuming the post adds the thumbnail once it has the link or embedded video added.
1) add a preview image (by using the featured media options/uploader) and choose the “link manually” option. Then enter a youtube or vimeo url in the link field. The video will play in the lightbox.
2) Click the upload button, wait for the popup window and click the “From URL” tab. Afterwards enter your video url (youtube, vimeo) into the url text input field and click on “Insert into Post”.
