Video Embed & Thumbnail Generator

Generates thumbnails, encodes HTML5-compliant videos, and embeds locally hosted videos. Requires FFMPEG or LIBAV for encoding.

  1. Upload the unzipped folder video-embed-thumbnail-generator to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
  3. Make sure you have all your MIME types configured correctly. Many servers don't have .mp4, .m4v, or .ogv configured, and even more don't have .webm. There are a number of ways to do this. In your public_html directory you can edit your .htaccess file and add the following lines:
AddType video/ogg .ogv
AddType video/mp4 .mp4
AddType video/mp4 .m4v
AddType video/webm .webm

Optional: AddType video/mp4 .mov will help with IE playback of .mov files but could interfere with other QuickTime players.
