    Video’s were supported until Facebook decided to remove the source url for the video from the api so we can’t embed it anymore. The documentation says it’s only included when you are the owner of the Facebook page but I haven’t been able to try that out. So if you let the owner of the Facebook page generate an access token there is a chance embedded video’s will work.

    Unfortunately it’s not possible to exclude posts with video’s.

    Thanks @timwass,

    So the owner of the facebook page generated a token. Some videos now show and others dont. Not sure why there would be a difference. Please let me know if you can shed some light.

    I did find a solution on how to hide the ugly screenshot. Not perfect because the outer frame of the post is still there, but at least the blurry pic is gone. I did this by referencing the image name in the css.

    body .eff-panel-body img.lazyloaded[src*="p370x247/30833298_1915223888548574_5088000176476389376_n.jpg"]{display:none !important;}

    I’m not sure why some work and others don’t, when you are the owner of the video and the page they should work. I don’t see any embedded video’s on your website in the Facebook feed though.

    I have added an shortcode option in version 3.0.22 to exclude certain post types (you can add multiple comma separated). So when you use the following shortcode you can hide the video posts.

    [easy_facebook_feed exclude="video"]

    Don’t forget the clear cache after changing the shortcode. The downside of this option is that the number of Facebook posts on your website can vary. When you get 6 posts for example and 2 of them are video’s you will see only 4 posts on your website.
