2. Featured Video

Featured Video will work only if you are using Video Format.

To set a Featured Video for your post just place your Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion or Facebook video link in the required featured video post box.

Video Format is perfect if you have a video and you want to show it in the beginning of your post.

On pages, the video preview displayed will be generated automatically. After you update the post you can see the generated preview image in the Featured Image post box.

NOTE: You should use Featured Video only on:

  • Post Style Default
  • Post Style 1
  • Post Style 2
  • Post Style 9
  • Post Style 10
  • Post Style 11

Facebook Videos


For Facebook’s videos you will have to use the following video link formats:

  • https://www.facebook.com/{page-name}/videos/{video-id}/
  • https://www.facebook.com/{username}/videos/{video-id}/ – user’s video must be public
  • https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v={video-id}

**Here is how you can get a Facebook video’s URL


Theme’s featured video feature also works using Facebook’s 360 videos


In some situations your site’s visitors might experience some inconveniences while viewing your theme’s Facebook featured embedded videos (low video quality, video blurry or reduced in size) on browsers like Firefox or Internet Explorer.

This may occur if your visitor’s operating system is missing the media-related technologies needed to decode and play videos and music properly. For this situation we recommend advising your website’s visitors to download and install the missing features appropriate for their operating system version. More information and guiding on this matter can be found in this article.

Twitter Videos


For Twitter videos you will need to use the tweet link which contains the video you want to set as a featured video.

**Here is how you can get a Twitter video URL


With this implementation, you’ll be able to embed only the videos supported by Twitter’s API. This means that the featured video thumb will be retrieved just for the videos actually stored and uploaded directly on Twitter.

To make this easier, when a non supported video will be used, you’ll receive an automatically Error Notification in your WP post editor:

Note: For portrait videos we recommend using post template style 1.
