    From another post:

    Thanks for your earlier help, mate. How do you set the featured image for a video post? Does it do it automagically or is it necessary to upload a separate image?

    Separate image needed indeed – so it works the same way as with all the other featured images. If it is a YT video, you can inspect the source code of the video page and find the high quality thumbnail direct link. Look for: property=”og:image” content=”Link here…” Around line ~22.

    Edit: For those who wish to show embeds directly instead of thumbnails, here is the modification required.

    hello, getting the url for the thumb is not the problem, the problem is showing the thumb in a video post!

    When you select the "video format", the featured img disappears from backend! How can you get both formats?
