Many of you have been wanting to find a way to let users click on a thumbnail picture of a video which then takes the viewer to a page, which is on your site, so that they can view it. well i have found a solution! first get a picture of the video you want to get. this can be done by goig to the website where the video is located, right click on the video's picture, the click save as. next, create a new page and in the both fields that appear, enter the videos name. next, drag the youtube video widget to your site from the sidebar. Then, search for the video you selected.once you find it, copy and paste its url to the youtube video wigdet then click apply. the video should now appear on yor site. now go back to the page where you would like to show the link to play the video. drag the insert text widget to your page. then, add the image that you saved earlier. now in text next to the picture, type something such as, CLICK HERE TO PLAY THIS VIDEO. now highlight that text then click insert link. click the url option. for example, if the video was named up the hill type, www.yoursitegoeshere.synthasite.com/u.... And voila you're done. i know this may seem like a lengthy process but thats the best i can do so far. when i find a faster way ill let you know. Hope this helps!!
