My plan was to use my xpost / featureddiv / featuredxpost set-up for featured videos but I soon ran into complexities. After finding this plug-in it made sense to use it.
The Simone theme I’m using didn’t seem to work with it automatically, so I amended my content.php and content-single.php again.

Use with YouTube
This very post uses my YouTube demo video to err … demo.
It’s similarly simple to use with any oembed enabled video source, and media-library videos. Though as I understand it, private videos (on YouTube) won’t work so I’ll need alternatives for that situation. No luck with Cloudinary, though yet – even with the settings-set to permit non-oembed sources … need to investigate what I need to do to make Cloudinary compatible (or any source – some kind of embed tag?).
I’ll add a media “site” to my home websites as I’m more familiar with streaming with IIS rather than Apache, but I’d prefer to use Cloudinary where possible as I only have limited bandwidth to serve from at home.
