Thumbnails for images/portfolio items show up in a sidebar, widget, footer, etc. When I add a video – as a portfolio item in a fullsize featured 2d slideshow, I have a blank thumbnail. Is there a way to have a thumbnail for a video?
currently it’s not possible to generate thumbnails for videos (or only if the online video service supports it). You can create an thumbnail image though and link it to a lightbox video.
to show an image on the main page to show as the video i use the “Thumbnail” custom so it will show the thumbnail of that video. The downfall is that on the videos post page you will have the thumbnail as well.
