Hello everyone! I'm in the market for a Genesis Child theme that can set live videos on the home page as featured images. The URL attached is a website that I'm currently working on, and we would want something like that, but with features like YouTube in which case the feature thumbnail image leads to the video, or plays the video on the spot. It's kind of a difficult thing to do so I understand not being able to get one. However, if you do know of a child theme that supports that feature, then please let me know as soon as possible.http://louisjohnston.com/
Just to seek some clarification, you don't want the actual video embed on the homepage but a thumbnail which links to a post or cpt with the video embed there?
I ask because direct video embed esp on homepage can have a very negative impact on performance of the site and therefore seo.
There are plugins you can use which can take a thumbnail from a video and set featured image of post etc, and you can do it in code as well -- what you ask is quite straight forward.
Thanks coralseait! I was just confused on what was the right thing to do. But your response helped to straighten it out!
