So I’m using the Data Table plugin to provide an index of 200 short films. This lets my family use the search to find videos of themselves or certain family events. They love it. I love it. This plugin is fantastic!
There is just one more thing I’d really like: Thumbnails
I have all my videos stored on YouTube.
I’d like to have my thumbnails appear in my data table so my family can browse as well as search.
Any ideas on how to make this work?
Is it something to do with the form of link? The data type of the column?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
In order to make video appear as thumbnails in your table, please follow the next instruction:
1. Find the needed video in Youtube
2. Click Share and click Embed below the video – http://prntscr.com/f8ez8w
