How to Embed video on homepage

Post by samc9wd » May 21st, 2016, 1:49 pm

Hi

I have looked in documentation and can't see how to do this.

I would like to show some you-tube tutorials on my homepage, with a view to having a portfolio of these available

How do I embed videos on the homepage please?

Thank you!
Sam

Hi,


Please add Youtube video's Embed URL in Video URL.

Please follow the instruction to get Embed URL as given in below Image.

Please Add Thumbnail to portfolio, if you add Video URL then video Will show.

NOTE: Youtube Video only play in PhotoBox Light Box. So please use PhotoBox Lightbox for Portfolio.

Thanks.

Hi

I have attached capture of my screen showing where I am typing in the video embed URL (capture)

However, this doesn't show in homepage, here is what I see (capture2)

Am I missing something?

Thank you
Sam

Hi,


Please add Feature image to the portfolio.

Feature image is must.

If you want to show Video, you have to add Feature image as well as video URL.


Thanks.

There was nowhere to put the youtube URL in featured image so I looked for a plugin and found Featured Video Plus which now makes my portfolio show youtube as required. Problem solved! :D

Thank you
