My problem is — sometimes I post YouTube videos embedded in my blog posts. When people “like” this page (from my page not on Facebook), the video does not show on that person’s FB wall as a thumbnail, like it would if you “like” it directly from YouTube. When you “like” the post, it randomly scrapes a pic from my site, not what I want.
Preferably I’d have those videos play on a person’s FB wall, so others can spread and I’ll hopefully get those all important social signals to my page.
I read that you can do this with the AWD Facebook plugin. How do I set individual videos embedded in posts to show as thumbnails in FB?
It says this on the AWD Facebook plugin page;
The AWD Facebook plugin is so robust that it even allows you to embed video and audio files into the Open Graph protocol meta data which then can be accessed by Facebook users and displayed in their feed through the proper use of Like Buttons!
