1. Upload the entire video-embed-thumbnail-generator folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Make sure you have all your MIME types configured correctly. Some servers don’t have .mp4, .m4v, or .ogv configured, and more don’t have .webm configured. There are a number of ways to do this. In your public_html directory you can edit your .htaccess file and add the following lines:
    AddType video/ogg .ogv
    AddType video/mp4 .mp4
    AddType video/mp4 .m4v
    AddType video/webm .webm


    AddType video/mp4 .mov

    will help with IE playback of .mov files but could interfere with other QuickTime players.
    Or use your web host’s configuration panel (cpanel, etc) to add custom MIME types.
