I'm using ProPlayer plugin to post a youtube file to my page. So far so good, except assigning a preview image to the file is not working. To place a custom preview image on individual files, the instructions say this:
But that makes the preview show as an all black screen - no image.
There is also a default option in the settings panel to set a url for a defaul preview image that would default for all Pro Player video's. When I try this, the custom preview image doesn't show, nor a black screen, only the YouTube randomly generated image.
If I don't use any customization at all, the default, randomly generated youtube preview shows - not suitable.
I think the URL to my preview image is correct because I can load it's url successfully in my browser.
Has anyone else had experience with this?
Alternatively, Is there a way to play .mov files directly in a wordpress page without using a third party solution? (This is secondary - the real problem is above...)
