    Hi Tim,

    We’ve successfully placed a slide show on the Home Page, but now want to replace the slides with a single video.

    I created a post with the category “Videos”. This post has been published and looks fine.

    In Theme Options, my settings are:

    Slider Category: Videos(1)

    # of Posts in Slider: 1

    Slider Type: Posts

    Slider Effect: Slide [I also tried Show]

    Disable Slider: Unchecked

    What am I missing?

    Also, should the video dimensions be the same as for an image slide?

    Many thanks,

    Sheila

    The slider does not support video.

    You can disable the slider and then use a plugin/widget to put video in the space where the slider would normally be. But because it is a responsive theme, this is not so easy with video.

    Something like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/fitvids-for-wordpress/ may be necessary.

    Thanks, Tim.

    We use EasyVideoPlayer.

    I had tried the widget method earlier without success, but got it working this time, using their iFrame code.

    We are going to create a separate mobile-friendly site with fewer choices, so are not as concerned with whether or not the home page is responsive.

    As long as adding a video to the slider area doesn’t break things, of course :-(
