Posting videos from WP to Facebook (2 posts)

    Hi guys,

    When you post a video from youtube to facebook you see a thumbnail of the video as well as the link. When I post a video from my wordpress site to my Facebook Fanpage there is a link but no thumbnail. Is there a way of posting a video from your wordpress site to facebook so that there is a thumbnail of the video on facebook?

    Thanks

    Andy

    Working on that same question right now Andy.
    Here is a somewhat useful lead:

    I've had luck by manually grabbing the meta from YouTube source and manually adding it to a single page/post's header. But that won't fly for client sites..
    Keep us updated if you figure anything out.
