    I see that it is possible to put a preview image on top of videos in my portfolio but I was wondering if it was possible to put a preview image on top of a single media item video. My website is missionquestions.org

    Thank you! basstrace

    Hey,

    yes – you can add a video links to your content. This page: http://www.no-margin-for-errors.com/projects/prettyphoto-jquery-lightbox-clone/ gives you code snippets for all supported video services like youtube, etc. As link target use the video url and add the image as “link text”.

    Sorry to be so novice, but would you please walk me through the steps within the theme to make a preview image go on top of my big video feature? Here is what I am doing: Step 1: In the “One page portfolio” options, I add a “single media item” (video), Step 2: then I upload from a url, paste my youtube link then what do I do? Please help and thank you for your patience. – basstrace

    Maybe your hoster blocks the socket function? It’s required to receive the oembed protocol (this protocol ask for the embed/flash code based on the url). If WP doesn’t receive the protocol results it will just display the link (more about this oembed protocol here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/cannot-get-video-to-embed-from-url ). I could reproduce the problem with a freehoster which also blocks socket connections.
