    Hi,

    I can’t get this plugin to work. I only get the image of the first frame of the video and it does not play. Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Did you choose the option to embed the video in place of the featured image?

    Yes, I have done that.

    after publishing the post, when I return to edit, the fields are blank again;

    -video URL
    -Set image as featured image

    The theme is twentytwenty

    Hi,

    I just tested the plugin with the default Twenty Twenty theme and everything looks good, embeds are working as expected.

    You mentioned in your comment that the fields are blank. I assume you mean the fields for import. If this is the case, you must choose to “Attach video to post”, otherwise the plugin will import any information you checked (featured image, title, content) but if the video isn’t attached to the post the plugin won’t store any video information on your post and won’t embed anything. This is the option I’m talking about: http://prntscr.com/t00rxl

    After a video is successfully attached to your post, the metabox for video query will look like this: http://prntscr.com/t00tob

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks for your support. I’ve tried this method and it works. The featured image is still and image (not video), and the video is now embedded in the post.

    I want to replace the featured image with the video, is this possible?

    Hi,

    After you successfully attach the video to your post you will see a metabox containing all embedding settings. From the settings you must choose to embed the video in place of the featured image: http://prntscr.com/t0kjvc

    I see, thank you. I was a bit more involved than I thought to get it working. Thanks for your support in getting it working.
