How to Replace the WordPress Featured Image with a Video

If you operate a video site using WordPress, you may be wondering how you can display your content in a natural way within your chosen WordPress theme. Most themes support featured images for displaying recent posts on the home page or blog page, but this can be a bit tricky if all of your content is in the form of videos. The new Replace Featured Image with Video plugin was created just for these types of sites.

Essentially, this plugin will replace the featured image in your WordPress post or page with a video. It supports Youtube, Dailymotion, Vimeo and many other sites that provide embed codes for videos. You’ll just need to be mindful to edit your specific embed code to match the size of your featured image. You won’t need to worry about editing any templates, because this plugin will automatically override any existing featured image for a post when you paste in the video embed code.
