Have you been uploading videos to other platforms(e.g., YouTube) to generate a thumbnail while creating a Website or blog in WordPress?
Well, now cut the middleman out(uploading videos to other platforms). Because Hippo Video's got you covered.
Now, a thumbnail is generated on WordPress for any video you choose to embed or paste a URL.
Here are some simple steps you need to follow to enjoy this feature:
Go to ‘Appearance’ and select ‘Editor’.
Now choose ‘theme functions’ and paste the code below“ wp_oembed_add_provider(‘https://www.hippovideo.io/video/play/*’, ‘https://www.hippovideo.io/services/oembed’); “
Finally, click ‘Update file’.
Once you’re done with these settings, you can use any number of videos to generate thumbnails in WordPress.
