    Sorry to be so novice, but would you please walk me through the steps within the theme to make a preview image go on top of my big video feature? Here is what I am doing: Step 1: In the “One page portfolio” options, I add a “single media item” (video), Step 2: then I upload from a url, paste my youtube link then what do I do? Please help and thank you for your patience. – basstrace


    Same problem here :S yo Dude would you like to help us pls! Once i set up the video url i just get a link to the video but no the video inside the post > <


    Maybe your hoster blocks the socket function? It’s required to receive the oembed protocol (this protocol ask for the embed/flash code based on the url). If WP doesn’t receive the protocol results it will just display the link (more about this oembed protocol here: (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -from-url ). I could reproduce the problem with a freehoster which also blocks socket connections.
