Hope it’s the right forum – not sure…
I’ve been testing the new MediaElement.js-powered [Video]-element, and I really like it!
I wonder if it’s possible to use it, so a html5 video is shown as the featured image on the posts? I’m all into highly customizing my theme with ninja-code in functions.php, but no core-hacking.
Or could a custom field be used to associate a video to a specific part of the post layout?
I tried to use a custom field, but if there’s no [video]-elements on the webpage, it seems to be missing those:
wp-includes/js/mediaelement/mediaelementplayer.css wp-includes/js/mediaelement/wp-mediaelement.css wp-includes/js/mediaelement/mediaelement-and-player.js wp-includes/js/mediaelement/wp-mediaelement.js
Otherwise it seems doable.
1) Is [video] as featured image (or reachable via custom field) something there’s in the works for 3.6? Or on the roadmap for 3.x?
2) Is this a far-fetched approach – or is it nearby with a bit of ninjaing?
3) Any other suggestions on getting a html5-video in – not as part of the blog-text, but as a separate element in the design.
I’ve searched and searched on documentation and ways to go with this, but no luck – probably because it’s still in production. Any help or comments would be highly, highly valued! 🙂
