    Okay, I'm just figuring this out. I generated and submitted to google webmaster tools but get errors on all the videos.

    I guess I'm not setting "Video Post Meta Variable" correctly. The error is bad URL.

    My files are hosted at blip, shown as a blip embed and can be downloaded via a url that redirects through blubrry to blip. I have a "class" that is "powerpress_link_d" (I used powerpress to push videos to iTunes and such)

    Soooo - Suggestions on how to set "Video Post Meta Variable"??

    The site is http://www.handyguyspodcast.com

    Thanks

    Hey Brian,

    Thanks for trying the plugin.

    So for each post you need to create a custom variable that will contain the link to the source video file:

    For this post:
    http://www.handyguyspodcast.com/1578/tractor-and-mower-maintenance-video-oil-fuel-air-grease-and-spark

    the custom field should contain:
    http://media.blubrry.com/handyguyspodcast/blip.tv/file/get/Handyguys-EP10JohnDeereLA115OilAndLube255.mp4

    I found this by looking at the source. It seems your post loads an iframe that then loads the video from this url.

    Put that value in the custom field. Then specify the name of the custom field for the video post meta.

    This should solve your problem.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi,@ radiofrequency
    I have been looking for a plug like this for some time as videos ranks high with the Gods. Brilliantly simple, problem is I'm not sure how to configure it properly (being 63 and rather lazy)so some Q:
    Categories: Video; url=http://electricalskillets.com/category/video/
    Should I just enter Video there?
    Video Post Meta Variable: I host my video files with DiveShare and embed, I figure that what I should enter here is in the embed code but what part?
    Thumbnail Post Meta Variable: Here I am at loss, do I have to make a thumbnail/file or is it in the embed code?
    Video Site map Location: Should be http://electricalskillets.com/video_sitemap.xml?
    Finaly, the name of the custom field and what should be there in my case.
    If this works with only 4 fields to fill and the custom field it is brilliant and Id gladly recommend it.
    Best Regards,
    P
