Add Featured Videos to your posts and pages. Works like magic with most themes which use Featured Images. Local Media, YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion.
Maybe the plugin does not recognize the URL. Take a look into the contextual help (button on the top right of the post edit screen). There is a list what the URLs should look like. If this does not help leave a note in the support forum.
With every video you insert into the meta box the plugin tries to access the API of the according video provider to grab information about the video and pull an image. When this API access fails the input box gets a red background. When for example the server you are using is located in Germany it cannot access the YouTube API for videos blocked in this country - still you and your visitors might be able to watch the videos as normal. The plugin cannot test for this.
Take a look into the contextual help (button on the top right of the post edit screen).
For the videos to be automatically displayed you need to define a Featured Image. This image will never be shown if a video is available.
Beside this your theme needs to feature Post Thumbnails and make use of
the_post_thumbnail(), because these are the core functions the plugin hooks into.
If the automatic integration does not work, you can tell me in the Support Forum which theme you are using and I will take a look at it and might be able to develop a workaround.
Take a look at your media settings and try different fixed sizes. If tweaking those does not help: Tell me which theme you are using.
Leave me a note in the support forums which video platforms you would like to see in a feature release!
