It would be great to have the featured image for posts and pages to be standard to allow for images or video. I am speaking of anything standard like a .mov or such that is allowed currently in the media library.
I know it may be a major endeavor since most templates use sliders and such. Plus the fact that one would want to support HTML5 and be somewhat mobile compliant. Since WP is pretty mobile friendly by default.
Currently I believe people turn off the featured image and use custom fields in order to have a featured video instead of a featured image. Or they use plugins.
Retro fits are just not as easy for new users. If your Template does not support it people are pretty much out of luck.
I put this out there because a high res picture convert prospects 3X better (vs low res) and video converts prospects 10X better when doing a site.
So the benefits to WP, as a major platform, would be worth supporting a standard for video in the featured image section of WP sites by default.
